Pulis: It’s like playing at a cup final

TONY Pulis is preparing his players for an intense afternoon at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.

Albion come up against a Huddersfield Town side who earned a famous 2-1 win over Manchester United in their last home fixture, buoyed on by 24,500 raucous Terriers.

“Going to Huddersfield is like playing at a cup final,” said Pulis.

“They clap everything.

“It’s an unbelievable atmosphere. They are really backed by the supporters.

“The three clubs that have come up have all got good managers.

“I don’t know David that well but looking at what he has done he’s done really well.

“He’s done a fantastic job to get them promoted and the start that he’s had in the Premier League has been good."
