Huddersfield kick off this afternoon against Blackpool looking to gain a vital 3 points at home.

The Terriers have two consecutive home games over the festive period and manager Simon Grayson is looking for a return of 6 points from 6.

Vital Quotes: Simon Grayson

"It is ideal to be back at home over the festive period,"

"Preparations for those two games started straight after the Crystal Palace game with the players getting their bodies ready by doing a proper warm down. The games come thick and fast over the next few days and we are looking to get back to back victories, which will act as a springboard for the rest of the season.
