HUDDERSFIELD entertain Burnley at the John Smiths Stadium looking for their first three points of the season.

The Terriers have started off with one loss and one defeat in this seasons Championship and with new signing James Vaughan in tow they are looking for 3 points on home soil, in what is expected to be a wet West Yorkshire day.

Vital Quotes: Simon Grayson

“Eddie Howe has done a good job both at Bournemouth and Burnley,”

He has started well this season, beating Bolton on the opening day which was a great result and then they narrowly lost in midweek. The reports we have had back indicate that his team are a hard working outfit who have plenty of firepower in Martin Paterson, Charlie Austin and Sam Vokes.”

“Nine times out of ten we will be underdogs in games this season. I think there are only four teams in the Championship this season who haven`t played in the Premier League so we are going into every game against established Championship teams who have very good players within their squad. We don`t fear anyone but we are respectful of what teams can do against us. The underdog mentality may suit us because the pressure will be on our opponents. I would like to think that teams will come to our Stadium this season and be concerned about the threats that we hold as a team.”
