HUDDERSFIELD head to high-flying Blackpool in buoyant mood after the 3-1 derby away victory at Sheffield Wednesday.
The Terriers will be looking to extend thier unbeaten run against a much fancied Blackpool side.
Adam Hammill is expected to miss out again for Huddersfield through injury, but everyone else is avaliable with Keith Southern making a first return to Bloomfield road since his departure this summer.
"It will be one of the toughest games of the season. I watched them on Tuesday night against Middlesbrough and they were very good - they could have been four or five up at half time and the same in the second half. They have a way of playing that a lot of teams can`t deal with - there`s a lot of rotation in midfield and attack to a very high standard.
"It`s a good place to go, as Bloomfield Road creates a good atmosphere. It`s a challenge, but our players are looking forward to it. We will have to be on our guard and at the top of our game because Blackpool have turned over some good teams this year; they are at the top of the division and one of the favourites to go up this year.
"We`ll go there aware of what they can do, but equally I`m sure they are aware of what we can do. We have some good footballers that will cause any team problems. Sometimes I think teams go there and are in awe of them; they try to change their tactics and it doesn`t suit them.
"Our defence will be tested. We`ll be without Joel Lynch, but Anthony Gerrard will come in and he`s been waiting patiently for his opportunity. For the majority of this season we`ve had a good shape on the pitch and that has limited opportunities for our opposition, but that will certainly be tested on Monday as Blackpool have goals in them.
"I like him; he`s wholehearted and he`s a leader. He`s had to wait patiently for his opportunity because the team has been doing so well, but he can come in now and try to grasp his opportunity."
Blackpool expected to be unchanged with Ian Evatt possibly earning a recall to their defence
GTF needs no introduction to Town fns, clearly a dangerman
Adam Hammill misses out through injury.
Joel Lynch is suspended.
If he can carry his form from the last match into this he could prove to be a match winner
A very tough game - A draw would be a good result for Town here
