Town travel to the Seward Stadium for the Easter Monday game, with a 3pm kick off, looking to bounce back with a win after a disappointing defeat against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Last season's play-off semi final opponents Bournemouth are currently under the caretaker leadership of Paul Groves & Shaun Brooks after Lee Bradbury was relieved of his duties a few weeks back.

They have two draws and a defeat under their belt since taking the reigns, draws with Yeovil & Stevenage before Saturday's defeat at Bramall Lane to Sheffield United.

Huddersfield travel with the record book behind them having not lost away at Bournemouth since April 1991 - a run that has stretched 12 games, can we make it unlucky 13 on Monday?

Vital Quotes:

'I think Bournemouth are a team that we can go and beat. They are a different to the team to the one that we beat in the Play-Offs last year and will go there and try and respond quickly. It will be a tough game, but the players will be positive and aiming to win the game.'

Huddersfield Town Team News:
