Tranmere Rovers v Huddersfield Town

Huddersfield Town story posted by Garfield (Admin) on 20/10/2001
The terriers run of good form ended when they played QPR away and lost 3-2 a week 1/2 ago, since then they lost against Brighton and just managed to scrape a win against Halifax Town in the LDV Vans Trophy. Hopefully Town will be able to get themselves back on track against a Tranmere team who are experiencing the same kind of form has us.Tranmere Rovers v Huddersfield Town

The starting line-up for Town will probably be similar to the side that faced Brighton last Saturday. None of the long term injured, Smith, Wijnhard, Facey and Armstrong, are anywhere near a return even to training. However Jonathan Dyson is getting nearer to fitness and should be pushing for a place in the first team in the next few weeks. As is Chris Beech, who could be on the bench.

The Town fans are expecting the full three points from this matchup and will be very disappointed if things go the wrong way, hopefully they won't. No doubt some Town fans will be shouting for the return of Peter Jackson if we carry on like we are doing but we have to be realistic here, will Jacko solve ALL our problems? I don't think so!

Come on you terriers!!

Tranmere our fellow relegated team last season have had a season of ups-and-downs so far just like us but are hoping to pick up a victory against us on Saturday.

One consolation for both sides is that no one team is really running away with the division at the moment. Both teams currently sit in the mid table area, and with a couple of wins could be sitting in a play off spot.

Both teams are also capable of producing consistently good performances, and on paper can beat anyone. However, finding that magical 'consistency' has eluded both sides at present, and Watson and Macari will be looking for big improvements over the next few weeks.

Garfield's Prediction
I'll go for a 1-1 draw with Chris Holland being the MoM.

Probable lineups:
Town: Martyn Margetson, Steve Jenkins, Thomas Heary, Nathan Clarke, Kevin Gray , Kenny Irons, Dwayne Mattis, Danny Schofield, Chris Holland, Andy Booth, John Thorrington.

Tranmere Rovers: Joe Murphy, Ian Sharps, Graham Allen, Steve Yates, Gareth Roberts, Sean Flynn, Jason Koumas, Mickey Mellon, Andy Parkinson, Seyni N'Diaye, Stuart Barlow
