Much like the majority of clubs in the Championship, Huddersfield Town have experienced numerous highs and lows in 2014/2015 as a result of their inconsistency.
Chris Powell arrived after a painful start to the season which saw the Terriers pick up just four points from a possible 15 in their first five matches but helped his side emerge from the wreckage to launch an autumnal seven-match unbeaten sequence.
The players were finally beginning to display the talent many observers knew they possessed and though Powell had to navigate through some fairly choppy waters at the start of 2015, a second seven-match run without defeat to end the season has boosted spirits ahead of next term.
Powell has made just four signings since taking charge, all of which were loans, and achieved mixed results with his recruitment to date, with this summer set to be a key chapter in his reign as he looks to make two or three key additions to his squad.
But just how did the Town players perform across the season?
Online football writer Tom Marshall-Bailey has travelled home and away with Powell's men this season and has awarded marks to the players on individual performances each weekend.
And here, he delivers his end-of-season verdict on those that remain at the John Smith's Stadium as well as the loanees who have recently departed and left-back Jack Robinson, who was earmarked for a season-long loan, only for a knee injury to cruelly cut it short.
The likes of player of the year Jacob Butterfield and players' player of the year Sean Scannell will reflect on the 2014/2015 fondly, but equally there are those who will feel they can make big improvements next season as Town look to move up the league table.

Pictures: The best and worst of the Huddersfield Town players
ALEX SMITHIES: Town's homegrown shot-stopper has endured some tough times this season and will have learned a lot from some chastening defeats and errors which have settled games. He has also had some outstanding performances, not least at Bournemouth, but he epitomises Powell's desire to find a consistency from his players. 6
JOE MURPHY: Arrived with designs on challenging for the No.1 jersey but has failed to offer any sort of tangible threat to Smithies, which in itself reflects a lack of pressure on the current first-choice between the nets. He was unfortunate to suffer injury against Sheffield Wednesday but only kept one clean sheet from four games in all competitions. 5
TOMMY SMITH: Has come on leaps and bounds this season and he has shown ability in both thirds of the field, with his three assists a welcome quality on top of his solid defensive work. But question marks do remain on his positional qualities against the very best this division has to offer and has been caught out at times in a leaky defence. 6
DAVID EDGAR: The Canadian came in from Birmingham City in January to improve Town's options in defence and midfield and, while his versatility has been useful when injuries and suspension have struck, he has failed to offer any additional quality and his technical deficiencies have been exposed when fielded as a midfield screener. 5
MARK HUDSON: Has suffered for form at times like many members of the backline but he deserves enormous credit for helping to steady the ship after arriving just prior to Powell and took over captaincy duties from Lee Peltier, who was soon forced out the exit. Has delivered some commanding displays this season and some perhaps less so, but has made more starts than any other defender. 7
JOEL LYNCH: He has undoubtedly provided many of the highlights of this season, with his overhead-kick in a 3-1 success over Watford sure to live long in the memory but injuries have curtailed his hopes of having a significant impact this season. He has also been the unfortunate fall guy for many of Town's weak defensive performances. 6
MURRAY WALLACE: The Scot enjoyed some exposure to the first team during the early stages of the season and was one of few beneficiaries with two goals from four games, but things quickly unravelled following the signing of Hudson and his form suffered as a result, with one impressive shackling of Bournemouth's Callum Wilson the sole bright note. 5
REECE JAMES: Many Town fans are hoping the 21-year-old can be brought back to the John Smith's Stadium next season and given a full season to prove his worth after an impressive brief loan spell which saw him make five outings, scoring once, and showing his technical quality. Defensive queries remain, but - should he return - former left-back Powell will be keen to bring the best out of him. 6
JACK ROBINSON: Initially looked to be struggling in a defensive unit which was shipping goals at an alarming rate, but established himself as a mainstay at the back and was key to much of Town's attacking threat down the left in the 3-5-2 formation. Injury was ill-timed as he was on the cusp of becoming a truly key player in this side. 7
JONATHAN HOGG: The improvements made in 2014/2015 by the previously much-maligned Hogg warrant high marks, even if injury put paid to him playing a key role on a more regular basis. But when he was fit, the midfielder provided the tenacity and battle-hardened attributes to make the Town midfield solid and dependable defensively. 7
CONOR COADY: There were dips throughout the season but for a 22-year-old to make the joint-highest amount of appearances (44) in what was really his debut season as a first-team regular is no mean feat and he played with a responsibility and maturity all season long which belied his tender years. Looks future captain material and, though he can sometimes be accused of failing to take control in midfield, he never shies away from a challenge. 7
OSCAR GOBERN: His resurgence, or belated delivery on the promise shown only fleetingly until now, has been nothing short of remarkable and the fact he is now under consideration for a new deal is testament to how far he has come in a short space of time. The real test for him now though, will be to prove his end-of-season flourish was not simply a flash in the pan. 6
JACOB BUTTERFIELD: In my eyes Town's star man in 2014/2015, with his contribution to goals scored and assisted (14) only usurped by striker Nahki Wells. But it is not just his substantial threat in the final third which marks him out as the key player in this side, it is his clever use of the ball, leadership qualities and even a determination to help out defensively when the chips are down. 8
RADOSLAW MAJEWSKI: The Pole's loan spell from Nottingham Forest has, quite simply, proven a disaster for everyone involved. He has been unable to get a look-in whatsoever under Powell, who clearly did not take to him from the outset, and despite being a diligent worker in training he has not come close to making his presence felt on the field. 4
SEAN SCANNELL: While Butterfield may take the plaudits, the rejuvenated Scannell's influence this season cannot be overlooked after a staggering rise from a bit-part player under Mark Robins to a key part of what Powell is trying to build at Town. His direct style and tricky wing play gets people off their seats and he will be vital to the Terriers' hopes of progression next season. 8
ADAM HAMMILL: The big enigma in the Town squad, with the 27-year-old wideman due to return from a fruitless loan spell at Championship strugglers Rotherham United with a year left to run on his deal. He will hope to play a part but Powell's desire to get him out in January speaks volumes about his standing in the first-team picture at present. 4
JOE LOLLEY: The precocious youngster's thirst for first-team action led to rumours of a potential exit in the build-up to January transfer deadline day but both manager and player have been keen to get down to business and Lolley has done exactly that in the final throes of the season having chipped in with two goals in his last four games to put him very much in the thoughts of Powell ahead of next year. 6
HARRY BUNN: Another who has been blighted by injury and that places his achievements during his breakthrough season into context, given that the 22-year-old narrowly finished as runner-up to Wells in the race for the golden boot. His early-season performances were outstanding as he tormented numerous full-backs and proved a constant threat on the counter attack. 7
NAHKI WELLS: The Bermudian has his critics and there is an argument that he can often hinder the attack when he is left isolated, but you cannot doubt the firepower he provides and 11 goals for the season testifies his ice-cool composure in front of goal. In what was his first full season at the club he finished as the top provider of goals and assists combined and will have his eye on 20 for next time around. 7
JAMES VAUGHAN: Finally looks to be over the injury problems which have plagued him ever since completing a permanent move to the club and seven goals from 25 appearances represents a fair return, but there is a feeling that 2015/2016 could be the year he truly benefits from full fitness and the increase in creative talents around him. 6
ISHMAEL MILLER: The jury still remains out on a player plucked from Blackpool in January but he has produced enough encouraging cameos since joining the club to suggest that he can offer Town alternative qualities in attack next season. It will be interesting to see what Powell wishes to do with his striking options this summer and how big a role Miller will play as a result. 6
