Head to head records: Away v Huddersfield

This weekend sees ourselves head into another massive game that we cannot afford to lose especially considering having only gained one point from the last three games.

During our early season struggles, Huddersfield were struggling alongside us and have tried to recover their situation. The Terriers currently sit 18th in the table and one point off the foot of the table. As for us, we are three points off the relegation zone with Crystal Palace and Burnley sandwiched in between.

Some fans are understandably labelling this match as a must win in what is going to be one of the shortest away trips our fans will make this season.

It is funny how the #RafaOut supporters have been keeping quiet of late. Following a perfect November, Rafa the gaffer has won the manager of the month award for the three wins against Watford, Bournemouth and Burnley. The job, however, is not done. A crucial rest of the month and Christmas period awaits where the players will need to be on top of their game.
