Match Preview: Huddersfield Town v Albion

GD red kit

West Bromwich Albion travel to Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon where they will be on the hunt for a second successive Sky Bet Championship victory (ko 3pm).

The Baggies earned an impressive 5-2 win over Hull City last weekend, with John Swift, Darnell Furlong, Karlan Grant and Dara O'Shea all on target.

Hosts Huddersfield narrowly missed out on a place in the Premier League last year having lost the play-off final to Nottingham Forest at Wembley.

They've had a challenging start to this term though and sit inside the bottom three with just three points to their name from their first four matches.

Huddersfield Town will be hoping to string a few positive results together before the international break in September to try and help propel them up the Sky Bet Championship table.

Last season's beaten play-off finalists have suffered three defeats in their four opening league games and will start the weekend inside the bottom three. 

Carlos Corberán left his role as head coach in the summer, while key players Lewis O'Brien and Harry Toffolo departed to join Nottingham Forest - the club who won promotion to the top flight at the expense of Town.

Danny Schofield, Corberán's assistant, was quickly promoted to the top job having also played for the club for a decade, making close to 300 appearances between 1998-2008. 

Despite their three league losses, Huddersfield did win their most recent home fixture, securing a 3-1 triumph over Stoke City.

The Terriers will be targeting a second league victory on Saturday
