Boston United v Huddersfield Town

Huddersfield Town story posted by Garfield (Admin) on 15/08/2003
The Terriers will be looking to extend their run of good form against Boston United - a team Town have never played in the league - and climb up the Division Three table. If they play as well as they did against Derby County on Tuesday, I can't see any reason why they can't win this match.Boston United v Huddersfield Town

Boston United started their Third Division campaign on Saturday away to Macclesfield with a 0-0 stalemate. Then, on Tuesday, they were knocked out of the Carling Cup by Division One title contenders, Reading, who beat them 3-1. So really, going on current form, the Pilgrims shouldn't really pose much of a threat to the in-form Mighty Terriers. However, according to various Boston United Websites, the Pilgrims put in a superb performance against Reading despite their loss, which means their last two results may be slightly deceiving.

Town have been fortunate over the last couple of games and pre-season as no serious injuries to players have been sustained. Nathan Clarke has returned to full fitness but will not be rushed back to first-team action. Nat Brown is carrying a slight injury at the moment but should be back in action soon.

Town's man of the moment, Jon Stead, will be hoping to get on the scoresheet again. With the way 'Steadinho' is playing at present, I can't see Andy Booth getting a game any time soon! It's only a matter of time till Jon Newby gets on the scoresheet, too. He said in yesterday's Examiner that the reason he gets caught offside all too often is because of his pace and poor refereeing.

I couldn't find any injury news for Boston United. What I did find, however, is that the Pilgrims' main threat upfront is Richard Logan. No, it's not the same Logan who played for Town, he's an ex-Ipswich player who scored 10 times in 26 appearances last season. Daryl Sutch appears to be on of the Boston fans' favourites.

Garfield's prediction: I can't see us losing at the moment with the way things are going, so I reckon we'll come away from York Road with a 1-0 victory.
