MATCHDAY 12 – HOW ARE THE TEAMS PERFORMING
Over the last three games we have won two out of three and the game we lost was at home to Chelsea by a single goal. That sounds good. So what about Huddersfield?. They have won two out of three and they beat Man Utd. That sounds good as well.
We have scored seven goals this season – Huddersfield have scored eight. We have scored three goals in x games at home – Huddersfield have scored three goals away from home and all of those were in the first game of the season. They haven’t scored away from home in their last four games. Fifth time lucky?
Andrew Surman. He’s our top scorer so perhaps we should put at the tip of a midfield diamond. What do you think Eddie? Right, back to reality. Looks like Josh King is out, so that leaves Defoe, Wilson, Afobe and Mousset. So who plays?
Is it not obvious. We need three points which means we need goals which means we need Defoe and Wilson. Any other suggestions?

Goals have been at a premium at Dean Court this season and we reckon little is going to change against Huddersfield (hope we are wrong). They can’t score away from home, we can’t score many at home. Should be an absolute cracker. Hopefully won’t be as boring as the Chelsea game. I think I actually nodded off in the first half. Three points more important than the performance, Callum Wilson to score. Already dreaming of the good old days (see below).
REMEMBER WHEN WE BEAT THEM
There’s no other reason for showing this than gloating, or admiration for our attack. Take your pick. Huddersfield gave us a good tonking at their place back when first made it into the Championship, but we got our own back, and the manager the sack, with a 4-0 demolition back in 2014 (and we missed a penalty). Happy days. So watch and enjoy. More of the same from Mr Pugh please.
