SIMON GRAYSON sends Huddersfield Town into action at home to Leicester tonight urging: “Let’s show we can compete with the big boys.”
The boss spent five eventful years with the East Midlands club and rates Nigel Pearson’s side among the favourites for success in the Championship this season.
But Grayson also reckons that despite the disappointment of Saturday’s 3-2 home defeat by Watford, his promoted side have shown they are a match for most in the division.
“We are working hard and enjoying every training session and the challenge of every match,” said the John Smith’s Stadium manager, whose side are sixth, one place below tonight’s visitors.
“My time at Leicester was great. I was disappointed to leave Leeds in 1992, but three weeks later I was playing in a Wembley play-off final.
“It was the first of three on the trot, the last of which we won, and after being relegated from the Premier League, we went straight back up,. again via the play-offs, and in 1997 won the Carling Cup.
“But that’s in the past. All I want to do now is win the next match.
