Tomorrow Huddersfield Town welcome current League One leaders Norwich City to the Galpharm Stadium (3p.m kick-off)Town vs Norwich City - The Preview
The League One leaders have opened up a four point gap at the top and it will be a real test for the Terriers as the Canaries just cannot stop scoring. With a bumper ground expected to turn out at the Galpharm.

Form and Stats

Town haven't won in their last three games and haven't won at home since the 2-1 victory over Southend United on January 16 but have drawn their last four home games.
Town's home stats are impressive, with 10 wins and seven draws and scoring 41 goals with averages 2.41 a game with a goal every 37 minutes. Only conceding 14 goals at the Galpharm (average goals conceded 0.82, conceding a goal every 109 minutes) with matches at home over 2.5 goals at a excellent 71%

Norwich City have won their last three on the spin, and out of their last five away games they only lost once. Norwich have won 9 away, drawn 4 and lost 4.
Scored 31 goals on their travels and only conceding 18 (average goal scored away from home 1.82, average goal conceded 1.05)

Past Meetings

The last time Norwich City visited Huddersfield was nine years ago back in March 2001. Town won 2-1 with goals from Delroy Facey and Craig Armstrong as Town battled to avoid the drop.

The last time the Canaries beat Town at the Galpharm was back in 1997 with Norwich winning 3-1.

Town News

Lee Peltier could be back in the starting line-up after missing the last two games through injury. Nathan Eccleston is banned for three matches after been sent off at Gillingham last week.

Norwich News

Norwich manager Paul Lambert has no injury worries and looks to stick with the starting XI that beat Yeovil Town 3-0 last week.

One To Watch - Wes Hoolahan

I have to agree with the official Town website. This guy has ripped Town apart while at Blackpool and did the same at Carrow Road earlier in the season. The Republic of Ireland international is one of the best players in League One and should really be playing at Championship level. Hoolahan has scored 11 times for the Canaries and is a part of the Norwich three along with Grant Holt (scored 20 goals) and Chris Martin (scored 14 goals)

Sean's Prediction

This is a real tough call, Norwich are a very good side but Town always raise their game against better opposition. I fancy a high-scoring game with a 3-2 win to Town.
