WILL BOURNEMOUTH BEAT HUDDERSFIELD?

By -

AFC Bournemouth and Hudderfield Town have been regular visitors to each others grounds. The 2011/12 season saw the Cherries take on the Terriers twice, taking a maximum 6 points. The away game was won with a single Harry Arter goal, while a 2-0 home victory saw goals from Scott Malone and Marc Pugh.

The previous season saw both teams meet four times and make the play-offs. All four games ended in a draw. The Cherries away game saw goals from McQuoid and Pugh in a 2-2 draw and a goal from Micheal Symes (remember him?) in a 1-1 home draw.
The fist leg of the play-off semi-final replicated the home draw with a 30-yard screamer from Donal McDermott (Remember him? Saw him in the pub watching the Cherries-Liverpool game) and a missed penalty from Danny Ings. The second leg was a six-goal extravaganza with Steve Lovell (2) and Danny Ings taking the game to penalties where we lost 4-2.

AFC Bournemouth old boy offers his thoughts, prediction and words of wisdom for the game

Our encounters with Huddersfield are usually feisty affairs and lets hope this one’s no different. We have met them a lot over the last few seasons and we have grown to dislike them a little. So, to make myself a little more unreasonable I will eat some chips (not unresonable), drink some Stella and shout some unkind words of encouragement. For today’s match swearing will be replaced by a special salute that involves either one or two fingers.

PREDICTION: The away result should be enough to inspire the current team to get a little revenge. The problem is we still aren’t scoring many goals. Will the new Irish striker be playing? If he can head a ball reckon he should get a go. The Terriers haven’t won away for a while but the bloke who scored a hat-trick in the flukey 5-1 win might get one. All points to a 1-1 draw, but as ever we always believe (apart from when Jimmy Quinn was in charge) so 2-1 it is. (Warning: remember our predictions are usually wrong).
