PREVEW: Sky Blues travel to the John Smith's Stadium

City head to West Yorkshire...

2 March 2023

The Sky Blues head to West Yorkshire for this weekend's Championship clash with Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium.


Following the dismissal of Mark Fotheringham last month, Huddersfield appointed former manager, Neil Warnock on an interim basis as his replacement.

Warnock got off to a winning start, beating Birmingham City 2-1 at the John Smith's Stadium.


The experienced manager has been tasked with steering the Terriers away from the bottom three places in the Championship.

Last time out, Huddersfield were undone by the league leaders, Burnley at Turf Moor, a result which keeps them 22nd in the league heading into the weekend's clash.


Huddersfield Town last six:

Burnley 4-0 Huddersfield Town (L)
Huddersfield Town 2-1 Birmingham City (W)
Stoke City 3-0 Huddersfield Town (L)
Wigan Athletic 1-0 Huddersfield Town (L)
Blackpool 2-2 Huddersfield Town (D)
Huddersfield Town 1-1 QPR (D)


Sky Blues last six:

Sky Blues 2-1 Sunderland (W)
Rotherham United 0-2 Sky Blues (W)
Sky Blues 1-0 Millwall (W)
Sky Blues 1-1 Luton Town (D)
West Bromwich Albion 1-0 Sky Blues (L)

David Webb will be the man in the middle for Saturday's fixture.
