After gifting Middlesborough two goals in a home draw in mid-week Mark Robins takes his Huddersfield Town side to play-off hopefuls Reading.

Nigel Adkins men are fresh off a coupon busting surprise defeat to Barnsley and will be looking at this game as a chance to get themselves back on course; with Huddersfield's away form not exactly great of late.

The Terriers have failed to record 3 points on the road since a 2-1 victory at Birmingham City way back on 15th Feb

Vital Quotes: Mark Robins

The majority of our games before the end of the season are against teams above us in the league so that gives us an opportunity to improve that record. We want to play with more freedom and eradicate the daft mistakes; hopefully we can entertain the fans. Reading are fighting to stay in the Play-Off spots and they are a good side.'

Reading Team News:

Sean Morrison could return after injury

Danny Guthrie returns from suspension.

Danny Williams, Mikele Leigertwood and Jem Karacan remain sidelined

Wayne Bridge is also expected to miss out despite returning to training.

Player to watch: Adam Le Fondre

Top Scorer and former Town target. The striker has only ever scored once vs the Terriers but will be looking to add to his 13 league goals this afternoon

Huddersfield Town Team News:

James Vaughan is hoping for a recall but could be set to stay on the bench with Robins playing just one up-front.

Joel Lynch is struggling to be fit for this and will face a late check

Player to watch: Alex Smithies

The young keeper has been subject to criticism in recent matches from certain sections of supporters. Smithies could be key here to achieving a favourable result
