Huddersfield Town vs Manchester City Match Preview
Mark Hudson takes charge of Huddersfield Town for the first and possibly only time after David Wagner parted company with the club by mutual consent last Monday.
Wagner clearly felt there was nothing more he could do to try and keep the Terriers in the Premier League, stranded at the bottom of the table and eight points from safety going into the weekend.
Renowned ‘firefighter’ Sam Allardyce quickly said it was too difficult a job even for him, and at the time of writing it looked as though Huddersfield may again go the German route which is proving so popular and successful when it comes to English clubs hiring new coaches.
Hudson, incidentally, does not yet have the UEFA Pro Licence required to take a Premier League manager’s job on a permanent basis.
In two 2017 visits to this West Yorkshire venue, in the league and FA Cup, City drew 0-0 and scraped a narrow late victory.
Huddersfield usually manage to keep things fairly tight, especially on their own pitch, and with the change of manager they are expected to put up a decent fight even though ultimately it may be a fruitless one.
