Huddersfield aim to end the season on a winning note against Yorkshire neighbours Sheffield Wednesday.
The sides enter the game in contrasting form, with Wednesday winning their last 3 games on the bounce and Town failing to win in 8 games.
Town triumphed at Wednesday earlier in the season by three goals to one, but today will be a completely different game.
'I think it`s a great game, isn`t it? You want another game to come along quickly after a poor performance and this is a local derby that will be played in front of a big crowd.
'Sheffield Wednesday are on a good run of form and we know this won`t be an easy game. We`ve watched DVDs of them and you can see a little bit of a difference in them compared with the early part of the season; sometimes that comes about through a little bit of luck or a single result brings a little bit more confidence - there are many aspects that will have helped them along the way. They will still feel like there is a lot of work to be done to try and get up the table, but everybody is working hard to get victories - no matter who you are in the division.
'We will have respect for the opposition, who are probably playing with a bit more confidence than they were four or five weeks ago, but it is about what we do as a team and as individuals to affect the game.'

Last Time Out:

Oliver Norwood, Lee Novak and Adam Clayton netted for the visitors while Reda Johnson grabbed the Owls' consolation.
