Huddersfield Town vs Leeds United: Stat Preview

Richard Heathcote

Andrew Dalton previews our clash against Huddersfield Town.

Well that was fun in the sun on Sunday :)

Now one of the most eagerly awaited games of the season, Huddersfield Town away!!

Since renewing rivalries with Huddersfield in 2007-08 season, we have only won one of our four competitive meetings at the John Smith's Stadium.

Season 07-08 Huddersfield 1-0 Leeds
Season 08-09 Huddersfield 1-0 Leeds
Season 09-10 Huddersfield 2-2 Leeds
Season 12-13 Huddersfield 2-4 Leeds


Although saying that we have been more successful in pre season games against the Terries.

Season 96-97 Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds
Season 99-00 Huddersfield 0-5 Leeds
Season 00-01 Huddersfield 1-2 Leeds


Apart from last season when we wore the black and fluorescent kit with the fluorescent socks we have worn yellow on all five other occasions apart form the friendly in 99-00 when we wore the half blue and half yellow shirt.

Following the signing of Dexter Blackstock and the news that he will be wearing the coveted number nine shirt, below is a list of players who have worn the number nine with distinction from 1993 to the present day. Note Squad numbers came out in 1993

Brian Deane (1993-96)
Ian Rush (1996-97)
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (1997-99)
Mark Viduka (2000-04)
Brett Ormerod (2004)
David Healy (2004-07)
Jermaine Beckford (2007-10)
Billy Paynter (2010-12)
Jerome Thomas (2012)
Steve Morison (2013)

Finally from me a certain Simon Grayson made his Leeds debut in this fixture in September 1987, over 21 years later he gave a Mike Grella his debut coming off the bench in our 1-0 defeat in Feb 2009.

Cheers
