Huddersfield vs. Swindon

Robins take on Terriers in search of a much needed win.

Vital Quotes:

'Saturday's game will be tough for us as Danny will have them very well organised. We had them watched in midweek and they did very well against a Stockport team who are flying high.'

- Lee Clark on the Official Huddersfield Town website

'It's important to get the first win. The last two games have possibly been a reflection of the way the season has gone so far and we have to try and change that.'

- Danny Wilson talking to BBC Points West

Huddersfield Town Team News:

Andy Booth and Joe Skarz return as Huddersfield manager Lee Clark can select an XI from a fully fit squad.

Player to watch: Craney & Roberts

Ian Craney and Gary Roberts: the former Accrington Stanley duo have be consistant players in Huddersfield and could terrorise the often weak Town defence.

Swindon Town Team News:

Jamie Vincent is on the verge of returning to the first team set-up after a long absence, however he is unlikely to be involved at Huddersfield.

Barry Corr looks set for another long stint out injured after dislocating his shoulder again.

Billy Paynter and Blair Sturrock will fight to play alongside Simon Cox up front.

Player to watch: Simon Cox

His dry spell is worrying but with two hat-tricks away from home this season, he could easily terrorise the Huddersfield back four.

Match Facts & Stats

Only 35 league games have been played between the two club over the years and both sides have won 13 and drawn 9.

The last fixture saw Swindon destroyed at home by 3-1 earlier in the season.

Those who have featured for both clubs include Duncan Shearer, Fraser Digby, Wayne Allison and Darren Bullock (not forgetting Fola Onibuje). Meanwhile Lou Macari has managed both teams and legendary Huddersfield manager Herbert Chapman played for Swindon a few times during his playing career.

Ref Watch:

P N Gibbs (Midlands) has mostly officiated in League Two this season: he has refereed 15 games dishing out 35 yellow cards without producing the dreaded red card just yet.

Match Prediction:

2-1 to Huddersfield.
