To satisfy that appetite, we’ve been busy producing various pieces ahead of Saturday’s opening Championship game against Huddersfield, so take a look below and get ready to go again!

Match Preview

“It’s been a summer of change for Huddersfield, who replaced manager Danny Cowley with head coach Carlos Corberan, who had previously been an understudy to Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United.

“The Terriers two pre-season friendlies went relatively well - a 2-1 win over Bradford City followed by a 3-3 draw at home to Manchester United Under-23s - but, like Norwich, their Carabao Cup campaign ended before it had really begun.”

Find out more about Saturday’s opposition, the referees in charge of the game, and how you can follow the action live!

Kieran Dowell: We’ll need the strength in depth

“It’s a good stadium and they’re a decent side with a new manager and a new style of play, which we’ve been looking into, but we’ll fancy ourselves against anyone in this division.”

Summer signing Kieran Dowell, fresh off opening his account for the club last weekend, tells us about his two visits to Huddersfield last season and why he’s optimistic for the year ahead.

Ask the Expert - Steven Chicken on Huddersfield Town

“It’s obviously a really, really difficult game. Town have got a horrible fixture list in their opening run of games because they’re away to Brentford after this one. 

“I think if we just see a performance, even if the result isn’t there to match, if Town can put in a performance to show that there is something there, that they’re work in progress and the project is underway and that there’s promise in it, then that would please a lot of fans I think.”

ExaminerLive’s Huddersfield reporter Steven Chicken gives us the lowdown on the Terriers and his expectations for the season ahead.
