In the build-up to fixture release day, we're taking a look at each of the teams who are new to the Sky Bet Championship for 2019/20. Next up, Huddersfield Town.
Nickname: The Terriers
Stadium: John Smith’s Stadium (24,500)
Manager: Jan Siewert
Having been promoted to League One in 2004, Huddersfield spent eight seasons in the third tier of English football before being promoted to the Sky Bet Championship in 2012.
The following four seasons would see the Terriers consolidate their place in the lower regions of the division, before being promoted via the Play-Offs in their fifth second-tier campaign.
Two seasons in the Premier League came to an end last term when the club were relegated with 16 points on the board.
Centre-back Christopher Schindler managed the most amount of minutes on the pitch of all the Terriers players last season - playing nearly 500 more than any other player.
Defender Terence Kongolo and midfielders Aaron Mooy and Jonathan Hogg were the other players to feature in most of the Terriers’ games.
Huddersfield’s top scorer last term was Karlan Grant, who netted four times after joining in January.
The two sides last met in 2017/18 in the Premier League, with the Terriers claiming a league double.
Albion’s last victory at Huddersfield Town was in the FA Cup in January 2010. Graham Dorrans and Chris Wood both netting to help the Baggies to a 2-0 win away from home.
The sides met in Division One back in the 2000/01 season, with Albion winning 2-0 away from home thanks to goals from Jordao and Lee Hughes, while at The Hawthorns Jason Roberts scored Albion’s only goal in a 1-1 draw.
