King Power Stadium
1 January 2013
Huddersfield travel to the King Power Stadium on New Years Day looking to stop the slump that has seen them go 9 games without a victory.
It will be a tough ask against one of the favourites to exit this division at the right end, made more so difficult with the news that Jermaine Beckford is ineligible to face his parent team.
The Terriers have performed well on the road but have only picked up one point against the top 11 Championship sides.
Leicester boast an impressive 10 clean sheets and the tightest defence in the Championship..
"They have a very good squad and it looks likely that they will recruit a couple of players in time for the game on New Year`s Day.
"We will go there with one defeat in five looking to perform an upset. Everyone will be expecting Leicester to win the game, but we have got players here who have shown what they can do already this season."
"Playing away from home may help; we showed at Palace what we could do and that we aren't frightened of taking on the big boys. We will go to Leicester and be positive in our approach and try and get the win."
"Starting 2013 with a win would be nice and I hope that if we do we can kick on and get a little run going.'
