The Championship 2014/15 - Huddersfield

The Championship 2014/15 - Huddersfield
Club: Huddersfield Town

Founded: 1908

Nickname: The Terriers

Ground: John Smith's Stadium (Capacity: 24,500)

When we face off: Tues 19th August (H), Tues 24th February (A)

Last season finish: 17th - Championship

Manager: Mark Robins - While his time in charge of the Terriers over the past one and a half has been mixed in terms of results, Robins should be given time to prove his worth. He has a mainly youthful squad on the scale of matters, so it will take time for him to develop these players and also get the best out of the experienced players such as Hammill, Gerrard and Vaughan.

Key player: Adam Clayton - The former Leeds midfielder is firmly established as one of the best central midfielders in the league and it is pivotal that Huddersfield keep a hold of their key man over the two windows. Seventeen goals in his last three seasons is a good rate, but it's his passing abilities from midfield that make him a very useful asset for the likes of Vaughan and Wells.

Season Preview: A poor end to the season meant that the Terriers finished in a disappointing 17th position last season, but there is plenty for their squad for them and Mark Robins to build on for this term. As I mentioned, Huddersfield have a young squad of players, so success cannot be expected straight away. They have the appropriate striking and midfield options, but could benefit by having more defensive cover. I don't expect Huddersfield to be troubled by relegation worries again this season and if they delve into the window more, could be a dark horse for the play-offs.
