Saturday marks the first return of former manager Steve Bruce to the Johns Smiths Stadium, since he was sacked more than 12 years ago as Huddersfield Town manager.
The 52-year-old, former Manchester United defender, has come closer than any other boss to attempt to guide Huddersfield Town to the Premier League.
However his ambition, backed by Barry Rubery initially, would prove to be the start of the collapse and not the craved return to top flight of English Football
Bruce guided The Terriers to within touching distance of the play-offs, but after having Marcus Stewart, allegedly sold from underneath him, the following season saw little investment and Huddersfield eventually parted ways with Bruce after a 1-0 defeat at Grimsby.
That season ultimately saw Huddersfield relegated and on a downward spiral with administration to follow and we all know the rest.
A lot of people have bad feeling still to this day against Steve Bruce, but he did admittedly have Huddersfield Town playing the best football that I've seen at the Town ground, memorable victories like the 7-1 home win against Crystal Palace immediately spring to mind!
So what reception will he get?
A lot of time has passed and you may think it water under the bridge, although his son Alex Bruce got a hostile reception when playing for Sheffield Wednesday against Huddersfield. The defender eventually pulled on the stripes of Huddersfield Town during a loan stint from Leeds United and the hatred seemed to have dissipated.
We shall find out around 17:20 today what his reception is to be!
Bruce has taken charge of seven league sides to date, they are:-
Sheffield United, Huddersfield Town, Wigan Athletic, Crystal Palace, Birmingham City, Sunderland & Hull City
