Terriers to provide a technical test

31 December 2016

Owen Coyle is expecting another tough encounter when Rovers face Huddersfield this Saturday lunchtime.

The two sides only met at the beginning of December when they played out a 1-1 draw in the corresponding fixture at Ewood Park. Danny Graham scoring from the penalty spot to cancel out Kasey Palmer's early opener.

Since that match the Terriers have won the following four matches to consolidate their place in the top six, so the Rovers boss is under no illusion of the task that lies ahead for his side.

"I think the performance that day was of a very high standard and their manager felt that it was their best performance of the season," said Coyle. "So we know they are a good side, 

"We know they are going to be technical, they are going to pass and move - very much like Reading in many ways. But we also know that if we are able to counter that and provide the goal threat that we do then we are more than capable of going and winning those three points.

"I think it will be a very good game, there will be a lot of good technical players on the field.

"We have to make sure at one end we cut out the individual errors, and at the other end in front of goal we put our chances in the back of the net. That is what we have to do."

Rovers fans who haven't yet purchased tickets for the 12.30pm kick-off can pay on the day at the John Smith's Stadium.

They are available - cash only - from the away turnstiles at £20 for Adults, £15 for Seniors aged 60 and over, and £5 for Juniors under 18.
