HUDDERSFIELD Town's Jack Hunt will face former manager Lee Clark on Saturday admitting: “I owe him a huge amount.”
The right-back is set for an 84th club appearance as Town head to Birmingham City for the first time in 12 years.
Clark, sacked by Town last February, took over at St Andrews in the close-season and goes into the clash seeking a fourth Championship win.
And Hunt says Town will need to be wary as they try to hit back after home defeats by Watford and Leicester City by notching a third straight win on the road.
“Lee Clark will have Birmingham well prepared and well motivated, so we have to be on the mark, the way we were at Sheffield Wednesday and Blackpool,” said Hunt. “We’ve had a couple of below-par performances, but we’re desperate to put things right and this is a game I’m really looking forward to.”
After Hunt returned from a loan stint at Chesterfield, Clark handed him a full Town debut in the FA Cup fourth-round tie at Arsenal in January 2011.
And the 21-year-old explained: “He gave me my break at the club and kept faith with me, and I will always be grateful because I owe him a huge amount.”
