Huddersfield Preview: Opposition Views

Last updated : 17 January 2003 By Site Staff
HTFC-World is probably the best Football site on the internet. Danny, who runs HTFC-World, brings Huddersfield match reports to life with stunning graphics and with excellent scripts with excellent humour.

We spoke to Danny from HTFC-World and asked him a few views on Saturdays game... he isn't confident....

Are Huddersfield living up to their fans expectations?(Maybe i shouldn't

NO! We expected at least mid-table and hoped for another promotion push.

Did anyone impress you, out of the Crewe team, at the Mcalpine?

Yes. The front pairing of Hulse and Ashton is the best striking partnership
I've seen this season. Their movement was very impressive and they gave our
defence all sorts of problems.

What change would you most like to see before/on saturday?

A new manager. Wadsworth appears to be unable to handle the pressure and
with the chairman no longer backing him publicly he looks like he's on his
way out soon.

Low point of the season?

Every week seems to bring a new low point so our last game must go down as
the worst moment so far - losing to fellow strugglers Peterborough and
therefore anchoring ourselves to the foot of the table.

High point?

2 wins on the trot (woo-hoo!) against Notts County (home) and Mansfield
(away) had us thinking we could pull away into midtable earlier in the

What's Huddersfields weak point?

Scoring goals. And defending set-pieces. And playing football.

Strong point?

Martin Smith as he does everything himself.

Best player?

Martin Smith. See above. He was bought as a replacement for Marcus Stewart
and is on huge wages. Unlike many others I could mention he is actually
worth them as he's far too good for this division. He's had lots of injury
problems in the past but should be fit for Saturday.

How many do you expect to come up to Gresty Road?

600/700 I'm really no good at guessing attendances. We had 9,000 at home for
our last game but a lot of fans are losing interest while Wadsworth is at
the helm.

Prediction for Saturday?

2-0 to Crewe.
