Football - Mowbray sticks with it

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray could name an unchanged side for the game at Huddersfield.

Boro clinched only their second league win of the year against runaway leaders Cardiff on Saturday to get their play-off challenge back on track and Mowbray has no new injury or suspension worries.

Striker Sammy Ameobi, on loan from Newcastle, scored on his debut and is expected to start again alongside Scott McDonald, while Kieron Dyer scored his first goal in six years on Saturday after returning to the starting line-up.

Fellow midfielder Josh McEachran also impressed after missing last week's FA Cup defeat to Chelsea.

Centre-halves Andre Bikey (hamstring) and Jonathan Woodgate (calf) remain doubtful, while striker Lukas Jutkiewicz (ankle), defenders Stuart Parnaby (hamstring) and Justin Hoyte (hip) and midfielder Julio Arca (toe) remain sidelined.
