Player to Watch – Delano Burgzorg

Delano Burgzorg produced arguably his best display of the campaign so far when he tore Blackburn to shreds in Huddersfield’s last assignment. The 25-year-old scored one and made another of Town’s three goals against Rovers, so he should have a kick in his step on Friday against Middlesbrough.
