Manager: Lee Clark (December 2008)

Player to watch - Alex Smithies: The young goalkeeper has been attracting a lot of attention from Premier League clubs after a series of storming displays for Lee Clark's side at the end of last season. Still only 19-years-old, the 6ft 1ins stopper will be vital if the Terries are to make a play-off push this time around.

Last league meeting: Huddersfield 2, Norwich City 0 (3 March, 2001): Norwich produced probably their worst performance since Nigel Worthington took charge as Huddersfield Town, bottom of the table, cruised to a 2-0 victory. The Canaries were terrible in the first half and not much better in the second as a goal either side of the interval helped Lou Macari's men to a vital three points.

City connection: Lee Clark was City number two until last December when he became Terriers manager. Ex-City coach Paul Stephenson soon joined him.
