EMMANUEL LEDESMA has been recalled to the Middlesbrough starting line-up for tonight's trip to Huddersfield Town.

Ledesma is the man asked to give the team greater creativity on the flank following the news that Kei Kamara has had to miss out with a knock from Saturday's defeat to Queens Park Rangers.

That is the only change to the Boro side from that game, with manager Aitor Karanka hoping to see his players bounce back from the frustrations suffered against Rangers.
