Ahead of the game | Terriers next Royals road-trip

A preview of our visit to the John Smith’s Stadium

23 August 2019

For the first time since our date at Wembley two years ago, Reading and Huddersfield will meet again this weekend when the Royals travel to the John Smith’s Stadium.

There has been plenty of change in both camps since then. The Terriers’ two-season stint in the top tier came to an end in the summer when they propped up the Premier League table with just 16 points on the board – 20 points from safety.

And that inability to get results was part of the reason why Jan Siewert, and David Wagner before him, were ejected from the manager’s office at John Smith’s Stadium. Temporarily, Mark Hudson is at the helm – the former defender finished his playing career with the Terriers in 2017 and is in his second caretaker spell with the club.

It has been a tough welcome back to the division; Cardiff, Fulham and Derby have all beaten Huddersfield so far, and their sole point came at Queens Park Rangers. They also have one less front to fight on; Lincoln City were 1-0 winners in their Carabao Cup First Round tie.

But they’ll be intending to get their season up and running this weekend – so our team will need to be at the mettle again if they are to take anything from the West Yorkshire trip.

It is set to be warm up in Huddersfield, but bear in mind the early start and late finish so it’ll be worth taking an extra layer too.
