Blues v Huddersfield previewLeave a comment
October 5, 2012 by Made In Brum
Blues take on Lee Clark’s former club Huddersfield Town at St. Andrews tomorrow, and with it comes a chance to rectify the horrific Barnsley defeat, which was their last fixture on home soil. Since then, Blues have beaten Brighton, becoming the first side to win at the Amex this term, and lost to Cardiff, despite a promising performance.
The Terriers have lost their last two games to Leicester City and Watford, both at home. Before that, they found themselves languishing in the top two of the championship, so its been a fairly decent start to the season for Simon Grayson’s men.
Will Packwood is a doubt for Blues after limping off in Tuesday’s loss, that aside, there is no fresh injury concerns for Clark. Stephen Carr, Paul Caddis and Pablo Ibanez are all on the long-term sick bed.
Town will welcome Jermaine Beckford back after he was ineligible to play against his parent club Leicester, and full back Joel Lynch is expected to return from injury. Adam Hammill and James Vaughan are both doubtful.
Blues will want to start showing fans that they are turning a corner. Currently, they find themselves in 19th place on 11 points. Huddersfield are 8th with 14 points.
With the ticket offers put in place by the club, let’s hope the attendance is an improvement on the last three home games, in which St. Andrews has saw its lowest league crowds since 1986.
