PREVIEW: City travel to The John Smith's Stadium on Good Friday

The Sky Blues are back in action following the international break..

28 March 2024

City travel to the John Smith's Stadium on Good Friday, as they return to action following the final international break of the season.

Meet The Terriers:

After a season fighting the drop last season, Huddersfield Town find themselves in a similar position this campaign, with eight games remaining.

Neil Warnock was the man who came in to steer them to safety last season, but after only a few weeks in the role this campaign, Darren Moore was appointed as his successor.


However, Moore would be dismissed at the end of January, with Huddersfield one place above the drop, following a 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers.

André Breitenreiter was the third man at the helm at the John Smith’s Stadium and after a winning start against Sheffield Wednesday, the Terriers began to pull away from the drop.

Although, four games without a win before the international break has seen Huddersfield drop into the bottom three, in what will be an interesting fight against the drop, with multiple teams at risk.


Mark Robins' pre-match verdict:

“It will be a really difficult game. They have changed managers recently and they have been in the last two weeks and have had chance to work on things to try and get some of the managers ideas and philosophy into the players, moving into the last eight games for them.

They’re fighting and scrapping and that’s what every team we face will be doing from now until the end of the season.

It’s a tough period for everyone and we have to go and embrace it and try and pick up as many points as we can and see if we can get into the top six.”


Huddersfield's last six:

  • Rotherham United 0-0 Huddersfield Town
  • Huddersfield Town 1-4 West Brom
  • Cardiff City 1-0 Huddersfield Town
  • Huddersfield Town 1-1 Leeds United
  • Watford 1-2 Huddersfield Town
  • Huddersfield Town 1-2 Hull City

Coventry City's last six:

  • Wolves 2-3 Coventry City
  • Watford 1-2 Coventry City
  • Coventry City 5-0 Rotherham United
  • West Bromwich Albion 2-1 Coventry City
  • Coventry City 5-0 Maidstone United
  • Coventry City 0-3 Preston North End
