    Wow man, sucks to get sacked. Results weren't coming your way, not before and not now either. Hoping for a quick turnaround!

    I was gutted! Stoke was terrible this season, then I had a decent run here, but it's business as usual again!

    Reading%20Home_zpsnqxb4dju.png

    After Huddersfield's run of poor results, Liam McGuire reshuffled his team for the visit of Reading. The manager sent out three strikers, in a 4-3-3 formation, to try and restart The Terriers' good results.

    The changes seemed to have worked, as Huddersfield took the lead after just 20 minutes.
    After Vaughan's poke at goal was blocked by a defender, the ball fell to Ward on the corner of the six yard box. The striker hit the ball first time, sending his powerful volley into the top corner of the net.
    Ward got his second before half time, proving Liam McGuire right.
    Nahki Wells put in a perfect low ball form the left, right onto Ward's foot, and all the striker had to do was finish the effort, which he did brilliantly into the bottom corner.
    The home side had a great chance for a third in injury time.
    Sean Scannell won a free kick on the edge of the box, after some crafty footwork beat his defender. The set piece was laid off to Hammill, whose powerful strike just missed the net, hitting the support behind the goal.
    That was the last action in what was the best first half in a long time for Huddersfield.

    The second half was a real midfield battle, with both teams looking to get an important goal.
    With 10 minutes remaining, Reading threw everything forward, but Huddersfield withstood their attacks, holding out for the win.

    Blackburn%20Away_zpsyt5paiub.png

    The exact same Huddersfield side was sent out at Blackpool, hoping for the same result as the last game.

    The same as the last game, Huddersfield took the lead early.
    Ward's pass from the by-line picked out Wells, who tucked his shot through the legs of Henley, and into the back of the net.
    But just 15 minutes later, Blackburn equalised.
    Jordan Rhodes chested down a cross beautifully, before volleying the ball into the bottom corner of the net.
    The home side then took the lead before half time.
    Gestede got through Huddersfield's defence, before finishing his chance well.
    Rhodes had another chance in added time, but was denied by Smithies.

    The visitors were gifted a chance in the second half, after Hammill was pulled down by Spurr in the box.
    Vaughan took the penalty, and found the top corner from the spot. A perfect penalty!
    Again, Rhodes got a goal quickly.
    A cross from the left found him, and he powered his header into the top corner.
    Vaughan had a headed chance just minutes later, but it was clawed off the line by Paul Robinson.
    With 10 minutes remaining, the referee gave another penalty, this time at the other end.
    Hammill nudged Evans from behind, and Lukas Papwick saw this as enough to point to the spot.
    Rhodes stepped up, and completed his hat trick, placing the ball right into the corner.
    Blackburn managed to hold off The Terriers in the last few minutes, to secure the three points.

    We were unlucky here, but Jordan Rhodes is something else!

    Middlesbrough%20Home_zpsrvoopii4.png

    Despite Middlesbrough having the most of the early pressure, it was The Terriers who opened the scoring.
    James Vaughan went on a mazey run through the heart of the away side's defence, before composing himself, and firing the ball into the bottom corner of the net.

    The second half was very end to end, until the 73rd minutes.
    Ryan Fredericks slid in from behind on Nahki Wells, earning the defender his second yellow card of the game, and swinging the game even more in the home side's favour.
    The referee seemed biased in Huddersfield's favour in the second half, then giving a penalty to The Terriers.
    There was a clash of bodies in the box from a corner, and somehow the ref managed to see a foul against a Huddersfield player.
    Vaughan took the penalty, and smashed it to the keeper's left, securing all three points.
    Huddersfield managed to hold off Boro's attacks near the end, to take all the points.

    Brighton%20Away_zpstthylfdk.png

    Reece James was handed his Huddersfield debut at The Amex, after joining the club on loan from Manchester United in January. That was the only change from the side that beat Middlesbrough last time out.

    Just 5 minutes into the game, Lee Peltier went down after a heavy challenge and had to be taken off. He was replaced at right back by Tommy Smith.
    At the the end of a very entertaining first half, the scores remained level. Both keepers were on top form, turning away some great chances.

    After a very nice passing play on the hour, Brighton took the lead.
    The ball ended up with Baldock on the corner of the six yard box, and he curled it past Smithies and in.
    Huddersfield threw everything forward at the end, but just couldn't get a goal.

    More news was released on Lee Peltier's injury after the game. The defender suffered a broken ankle, and will be out for around 3 months.

    To further add to Huddersfield's recent woes, Adam Hammill was injured in training, and will miss three weeks with a hyper extended knee.

    Huddersfield had the best of the first stages, and were rewarded when Nahki Wells was brought down inside the box.
    As usual, James Vaughan took the responsibility, and dispatched the ball into the bottom corner.

    Despite Birmingham having a lot of good possession in the second half, it was Huddersfield who got the all-important second goal.
    After a poor clearing header, James Vaughan nodded the ball back into the box, into the path of Joe Lolley, who side-footed the ball past Randolph and in.
    The Terriers kept pushing, and Vaughan had a good chance in added time, but just lashed his shot wide.

    A great game for the home side, and the result was never in doubt.

    Nice to see some improved results recently. Shame about the injuries though.

    We still aren't consistent enough for my liking. They don't help at this point of the season, but it lets some of my other players get some game time, and Joe Lolley made the most of his opportunity.

    Bolton%20Away_zpszvuz47bz.png

    Despite an impressive win against Birmingham last time out, due to tiredness, Liam McGuire was forced to make 4 changes to his team. James, Smith, Holmes, and Bunn, replace Carroll, Hudson, Butterfield, and Ward.

    After just 15 minutes, Nahki Wells opened the scoring for Huddersfield.
    Duane Holmes played a perfect ball over the top for the striker to run onto, and after fighting off his marker, tapped the ball through Adam Bogdan's legs and into the net.
    But Jermaine Beckford leveled soon after.
    The striker met Jay Spearing's curling free kick, and headed the ball out of the reach of Smithies.
    Before half time, Huddersfield took the lead again.
    James Vaughan cut in from the left, and beat the keeper at his near post with a very well placed shot.
    Joe Lolley had a great chance in added time. James Vaughan played a perfect ball through to put the winger in on goal, but he missed the net by a mile!

    The second half was very much a midfield battle with both teams taking pot shots, but neither team could create any real chances.

    Sheffield Wednesday had a great chance early on when the ball dropped to Lee, but he could only hit the side netting with his volley.
    The injury worries worsened for Huddersfield with less than 20 minutes gone when James Vaughan went down in the box, after an aerial collision. He was taken off straight away, and replaced by Duane Holmes.
    It was the visitors who opened the scoring, Nuhiu finishing a close range volley on 30 minutes.
    Substitute Holmes missed a great chance after half time, somehow not finding the far corner from a squared ball into the box.

    Just after the hour mark, Nahki Wells leveled the game.
    Paul Dixon whipped in a perfect cross, and Wells was there to power his header into the top corner.
    Huddersfield were the better team in the second half, and bombarded Wednesday's goal, but couldn't find a winner.

    Thankfully James Vaughan's injury isn't as bad as first feared, and he'll only be out for less than 10 days.
    However, it was revealed after the game that Paul Dixon suffered a pulled hamstring, and will miss around 2 weeks.

    Wolves%20Away_zpshpgpg9ml.png

    It took half an hour, but it was Wolves that opened the scoring.
    Sigurdarson got clear, and smashed the ball past Smithies.
    Sean Scannell went close before the break, but put his shot just over the bar.

    Just 5 minutes into the second half, Huddersfield were level.
    Nahki Wells got free in the box, and smashed his shot into the bottom corner.
    But Wolves went ahead after the hour.
    Smithies couldn't palm a save to safety, and Sigurdarson was on hand again to tap it in.
    Adam Hammill returned to the side as a second half substitute, coming on for Joe Lolley.

    Furious at this game! Awful refereeing, passing suddenly became awful, and my players were shocking.

    Vaughan and Hammill return to The Terriers' lineup, after their loss at Molineux.

    Just 7 minutes in, Hull opened the scoring.
    Lynch's poor clearance fell to Livermore, who volley home past Smithies, who was out of position from the initial shot.
    Jelavic gave The Tigers a second goal, heading in a deep cross, just before the half hour.
    Huddersfield created a few half chances in the first half, but didn't really trouble Allan McGregor.

    Jacob Butterfield had an effort just after half time, but just curled his shot wide, from the edge of the box.
    The midfielder had another go, this time from 30 yards, but the ball just skimmed the cross bar as it dipped over.
    Just after the hour mark, substitute Karim Rossi added Hull's third.
    He got a bit of luck with the ball sticking in his feet, but he got control, and powered the ball into Huddersfield's net.
    James Vaughan almost responded immediately, but his over-head kick just went wide of the goal.
    Paul McShane was very unfortunate near the end, heading the ball into his own net from a Nahki Wells cross.
    The goal spurred The Terriers on, but Allan McGregor played amazingly, keeping out some very good chances.

    This game showed Hull's quality that they've kept from the Premier League, and how far we have to go to get to that level.

    Huddersfield travel to The City Ground for their third consecutive away game, in which they've only picked up 1 point.

    Assombalonga had a great close range chance early on, but Smithies parried the ball away for a corner.
    From the resulting set piece, Forest took the lead.
    Smithies' punch only went as far as Antonio, who volleyed into the net.
    Forest got a second before half time.
    The ball was played through perfectly to Britt Assombalonga, and the striker poked the ball in at the near post.
    Huddersfield were denied a clear penalty in added time, when Nahki Wells was brought down by Dorus de Vries in the box, but the referee waved off the away side's furious appeals.

    We were awful. Another one of those games...

    Derby were given a very poor penalty in the first half.
    Ibe ran into Smith in the box, who won the ball with his challenge, but the referee pointed to the spot.
    Martin smashed the ball down the middle, to open the scoring.
    But Huddersfield responded within 2 minutes.
    Hammill played a perfect ball into the box to Wells, who held the ball up well. He laid it off to Vaughan, who placed the ball into the back of the net.
    Another 2 minutes later, and Derby had the lead again.
    Christie's cross found Ibe at the back post, who headed the ball back into the middle to Martin. The striker met the ball well, and headed over Smithies and in. Wallace tried to clear off the line, but only managed to poke the ball into the net.
    Martin finished his hat trick in added time.
    Ibe slipped the ball into him, and he smashed it past the stranded Smithies.

    Late into the second half, and Huddersfield got a life-line.
    A poor throw out by Grant was intercepted by Bunn. The striker played the ball across to Nahki Wells, who finished the ball into the empty net.
    But any hopes of a Huddersfield comeback were shattered, when Conor Sammon headed in a cross with 7 minutes left.
    With 2 minutes left, Huddersfield got a third.
    Holmes played it into Lolley, who hit the ball first time into the bottom corner.
    Despite The Terriers throwing everything forward, they couldn't find an equaliser.

    With no win in 5 games, Huddersfield Town welcome 22nd place Blackpool, hoping to pick up 3 points.

    After Hammill returned from his injury, Joe Lolley was pushed out of the side. But he is trying to climb his way back into the starting 11, and definitely helped his cause after 18 minutes.
    Scannell played the ball to him on the edge of the box, and Lolley smashed the ball into the bottom corner.
    Just before half time, Blackpool equalised.
    Davies pounced on a rebound, after Smithies failed to parry a shot away from danger.
    A minute later, and they scored again.
    It was Davies again, this time powering home a header at the far post.

    Late into the second half, Huddersfield threw everything forward, and for once, it actually worked.
    Paterson played a great ball ahead of Vaughan, who squeaked the ball through the keeper and in.

    I really hope the gameplay in FIFA 16 is a lot better, because this game is very, very broken.

    Trying to turn around Huddersfield's bad form, Liam McGuire dropped Jacob Butterfield down the field, turning his role into more of a holding midfielder, as opposed to the attacking midfield position he was playing previously.

    Huddersfield started off brilliantly, not allowing Leeds a touch of the ball for the first 5 minutes, until Wells' tame shot was held by Silvestri.
    After just 11 minutes, James Vaughan had to be taken off after falling awkwardly. He suffered a sprained ankle and will miss the next month, at least.
    Sean Scannell had a good effort from the edge of the box on the half hour, but the ball just flew wide of the goal.

    It took an hour, but the deadlock was finally broken.
    Harry Bunn tipped a Ward cross to Scannell at the back post, and the winger calmly placed the ball into the bottom corner.
    Just 3 minutes later, Leeds got a free kick just outside The Terriers' box.
    Agbonlahor dummied it for Adryan to hit, and the ball struck the bar before bouncing over.
    Kristoffer Olsson made his debut in the second half, replacing the previously booked Sean Scannell. The 20 year old Swede arrived from Arsenal in January, for £20,000.
    The midfielder's first touch in a Huddersfield shirt was a perfect chipped pass to the feet of Harry Bunn, who was making a run behind the Leeds defence.
    For some reason Leeds kept holding the ball in the corner, despite them losing.

    A very good performance, after what has been an abysmal month for The Terriers. Olsson was very good in his 15 minutes, and already looks like he's worth well more than the £20K that was paid for him.

    Nahki Wells' had a golden opportunity on the half hour, but his glancing header from the edge of the six yard box clipped the post as it went wide.
    Wells again had a chance in added time, but his shot from outside the area flew past the net.

    After some great passing play the ball fell to Joe Lolley in the box, but his powerful drive could only strike the post, before bouncing away.
    Huddersfield piled on the pressure, but couldn't get through Millwall's defence.

    It took until injury time for the first decent chance, and Ipswich took it.
    The ball was played into Wordsworth, who tucked the ball into the corner.
    But straight from the kick off, Huddersfield went up the field and won a penalty.
    Wells took it, but the keeper guessed right and parried the ball away.

    Just after half time, the home side added a second.
    Smithies saved a header at full stretch, but Bamford volleyed the rebound off the bar and in.
    Nahki Wells had a good chance from 35 yards, but his powerful drive just missed the top corner.

    A very boring game, and a very poor performance.

    In a very boring first half, Nahki Wells had the only good opportunity.
    The striker worked his way into the box, but could only find the post with his weak shot.

    Fulham had the referee to thank for their goal on the hour.
    Smithies was pulled in the box from a corner, and Kacaniklic had the easiest of tap ins.
    Right back Tom Carroll had a great effort from outside the box, but his volley struck the bar before bouncing away.
    Despite Huddersfield's attacking threats, it was Fulham that got the late goal.
    Rodallega turned in the box, and tucked the ball into the bottom corner.

    Due to Chesterfield's kits clashing with Huddersfield's, The Terriers lined up at the John Smith's Stadium in their red and black away kit.

    Just 3 minutes in, and Chapman was forced into a very tough save, from a close range Nahki Wells header.
    Huddersfield had the best of the first half, but neither team could find the net.

    Despite The Terrier's pressure, Chesterfield opened the scoring.
    Clucas' strike from the edge of the area struck the post before hitting the back of the net.
    The home side kept pushing and got their reward in added time.
    Nahki Wells was played in by Danny Ward, and the centre man smashed the ball into the net.

    Murray Wallace was injured in the second half, and will miss the end of the season with a sprained ankle.

    In added time, Leicester took the lead.
    Vardy was unmarked in the box, and powered his header home.

    But just before the hour mark, Huddersfield equalised.
    Scannell played a great one-two with Ward, before smashing the ball into the far corner.
    Huddersfield pushed hard, but couldn't get the winner.

    Was 1-0 up until the game crashed! :s
