Huddersfield line-up

Ruthless Blues look to pile on misery

It goes without saying that City need to win today and win well.

The ruthless champions have shown against Burton Albion and Rotherham that there’s no such thing as taking the foot off the pedal with this team and expect the same attitude against the Premier League’s bottom side.

The Terriers come into the game with coach Mark Hudson in control and he’s promised an organised, energetic and together Huddersfield for this game.

City need to grasp the game from the go, quieten the home support and, if possible, go into the break with a good advantage.

Anything less could make this a much tougher game than it might look on paper.
