Huddersfield Town Twitterati @declankohl offers his thoughts for Saturdays game
KEY PLAYER: Jordan Rhodes
Without a doubt Jordan Rhodes is the in form player at Huddersfield at the moment, scoring 13 league goals this season already. The in form Scotland U21’s player has carried on his form, in the international spotlight, in League 1 being a vital goal scorer for Huddersfield this season. He is in top form.
CHERRIES CONNECTION: Anton Robinson
Anton Robinson joined us in the summer and has fitted into the team nicely. He isn’t afraid to get stuck in and he scored a vital late goal away at Yeovil to win the match and get the 3 points in our push for promotion. He is a good asset to the team and has fitted in perfectly.
PREDICTION: I think after a first league game loss in 43 games for Huddersfield last time out that they will be keen to get back to winning ways but Bournemouth could strike while Huddersfield have had there first league loss this season. I think it will be close, 2-1 to Huddersfield with the scorers for Huddersfield being Jordan Rhodes and Scott Arfield.
‘BIG’ STEVE SPANGLER
TFTSE regular and AFC Bournemouth old boy offers his thoughts for the game
No I am not going to the game, its a long way to Huddersfield and I have to do my Xmas shopping some time. However, as with many away games I will crack open a bottle of Stella, no cans that ‘s far too common, and listen to the dulcet tones of John Williams. I met him in the Westbourne pub once, he was collecting glasses, good to see his has a more befitting job. There is no doubt that my favourite swear word for this game is going to be For Fuck’s Sake
PREDICTION: Last season we couldn’t manage to beat them and they couldn’t manage to beat us in the League or the play-off’s. This is Wes Thomas last game until next year so he will be looking to make an impression but, I can see us struggling to find the back of the net. However, the defence is starting to look solid, so yet again it looks very much like a draw. A safe bet seems to be 1-1 but I am going for 2-2.

Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury:
“I brought in Wes and he has done well and scored goals. He is going to miss two-and-a half weeks but we have got players that can come in and do a job for us no problem at all. People like Michael Symes, Charlie Sheringham, Wes Fogden and Steve Fletcher all want to play and are all hungry to play. It will be an opportunity for someone to do that.”
