The Cods’ last outing was on Saturday when they finished their Scottish leg of their pre-season preparations with a goalless draw with double cup winners St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park.

Both sides were able to create chances throughout the game, with the best one being a free-kick from the home side being taken by David Wotherspoon in the first-half, which hit the side-netting of Alex Cairns’ goal.

Before that, Town had three build-up friendlies which started off with a 2-0 win over Radcliffe, before a Jordan Rossiter header sealed a 1-0 win over Port Vale at the club’s training complex.

Rochdale was next on the cards and that ended in a 3-3 draw – one for the spectators. The Cod Army went behind when Stephen Dooley fired home, but Town reacted quickly as Danny Andrew’s found the back of the net with his free-kick.

Dale regained a two-goal advantage however a late double from Ryan Edmondson, including a neat volley for the equaliser, ensured the game finished level.

The Terriers are finishing off their pre-season schedule at Highbury against the Cods and they will looking to get back to winning ways as their last game was a narrow loss to newly promoted Premier League side, Norwich City.

Norwich opened the scoring after 14 minutes, when Lukas Rupp slipped the ball through to Teemu Pukki, who was able to lift the ball over Lee Nicholls. Even though the side created constant chances, it was Norwich who managed to add a second just before the end after Adam Idah managed to find the back of the net.

In the game before, Huddersfield recorded a 2-0 win over Southport and they started the game quick, gaining the lead after just two minutes through an Adam Anson own goal. Duane Holmes got his name on the score sheet late in the first half after dribbling through a crowd and finishing low across the keeper.

Head Coach Simon Grayson spoke to the club after his side played out a goalless draw against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park on Saturday afternoon. Here is what the gaffer had to say in his interview:

“It was a real good test for us, they are a team who are starting their season next week and are going into a European game against Galatasaray. We are a week behind them and are coming off the back of a tough week in Ayrshire so, overall, we had a good performance collectively as a team, but we also had some individual ones as well.

“We are in good shape in terms of the physical condition of the players and today, we had a good game against a good team.

“We’ve worked a lot on out-of-possession stuff over the last couple of days and you could see that today. The shape was good, and we didn’t concede too many opportunities and those are things to put in place for the rest of the season.”

The one to watch from The Terriers is midfielder, Duane Holmes. The 26-year-old rejoined the side in January and has since gone on to make 16 appearances and has found the back of the net on two occasions.

Holmes, who has made two appearances for the United States national team, started his career in the blue and white of Huddersfield, making his league debut against Blackpool in September 2013.

Loan spells would follow his first season at the club, as he first went to Yeovil Town, and that move was followed by another quick loan to Bury. After three years at the John Smith’s Stadium, he then made a permanent move to Scunthorpe United, where he would net 10 goals and gain valuable experience in his two years there.

The Championship beckoned in Derby County in 2018 and even though he made almost 70 appearances for the side, he couldn’t resist heading back to Huddersfield at the turn of the year and featured in the side for the rest of the season.

Match Reports

Report: Morris and Garner goals secure win over Huddersfield Town

27 July 2021

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town overcame Sky Bet Championship opponents in Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night 2-1, thanks to goals from Shayden Morris and Ged Garner.

In a game where fans were welcomed back into Highbury for the first time in 507 days, it was a solid showing as the Cod Amy took a two-goal lead in the first half playing some impressive football which took Fleetwood into the break with a lead; Huddersfield responded with a goal with 15 minutes to go, but Fleetwood defended strongly to hold out for a win.

With just five minutes played, it was Fleetwood who took the lead as Morris took advantage of a loose ball and superbly struck the ball into the left corner from 20 yards out.

It was at Fleetwood who dictated the play in the opening ten minutes, really putting on a show for the Cod Army fans who are in the stands for the first time in 507 days, putting the ball around confidently.

Huddersfield’s first effort on target came just before 15 minutes played as Josh Ruffels’ strike was matched by Alex Cairns.

With a quarter of an hour played, it was an even affair between the two with the hosts just seeming to edge the difference as Morris looked dangerous down the right-hand side every attack with Paddy Lane equal on the left.

On the half an hour mark, it was Garner who doubled Fleetwood’s lead as his unorthodox, acrobatic over-head kick from a few yards out found its way into the back of the net.

With 36 minutes played, Fleetwood worked a smart move where Brad Halliday sprayed the ball wide to Max Clark, the latter returned the ball to Halliday where he saw his half-volley flew over the bar.

Just before half-time, Jordan Rossiter was tripped on the edge of the box and Danny Andrew stood over the free-kick – the free-kick was dangerous and was just tipped onto the post by Ryan Schofield.

A few early chances in the second period came the visitors’ way, but it was Fleetwood whose effort tested either goalkeeper the most first as Morris pounced on the Terriers’ defenders’ mistake, laid it off for Rossiter whose drilled effort was saved.

On the hour mark, Huddersfield enjoyed a spell of possession with a few consecutive corners along with it, but their account wasn’t opened.

After a spell of pressure from the visitors, they halved the deficit as Lewis O’Brien found a yard of space and drilled an effort past Cairns into the bottom corner.

In the remaining 15 minutes, Huddersfield looked to build on their goal, but the Cod Army defended resiliently in what was a good outing for Simon Grayson’s men in front of fans for the first time in a long while.
