Huddersfield arrive at Elland Road tomorrow in fantastic form and heavily the favourites after a poor start from Garry Monk and Leeds United. We will be without Gaetano Berardi but have Pontus Jansson and Eunan O’Kane available for the game. Huddersfield will want to repeat the performance from last season where they gave us a good old hiding at Elland Road, and hopefully we will want to put it right.
David Wagner and Huddersfield have been brilliant so far and it just shows you how much a side can improve if they are given half-decent time to gel and build. They arrive top of the table after 4 wins and a draw in the opening 5 games. To put that into context they have had trips to Newcastle and Aston Villa and taken 4 points. We will have Liam Bridcutt as captain and he will need to rally the troops and remind the players of what any derby is in Yorkshire. I think Monk may revert to the 4-2-3-1 formation now he’s had time to work with the players on the training ground.
One To Watch – Joe Lolley – Tormented us at Elland Road last season and sold Bamba for the early penalty. Brilliant left foot and a player who seems to thrive in the tight spaces. Ayling and Taylor will need to be at the top of their game.
