Huddersfield Town’s trip to Shrewsbury in the first round of the League Cup – sorry EFL Cup – is sure to bring back memories of a famous piece of sporting video.
That’s because the last time the two teams met, Neil Warnock was Town boss and he went berserk during a half-time dressing room rant!
It was pouring down when Town visited the old Gay Meadow ground on Saturday, April 22, 1995 for a match in the old Second Division.
Town were 2-0 down at the break and looking pretty bedraggled, but that didn’t stop Warnock laying into the team with some classic expletives.
No-one was spared his wrath and, while it didn’t work on the day – his team lost 2-1 – they did go on to make the play-offs and win promotion against Bristol Rovers at Wembley.
Previously the Capital One Cup, Town will travel to Greenhous Meadow this season in the week beginning August 8.
The ground has a capacity of 9,875 and the Shrews are managed by Micky Mellon.
Last term, Town lost to Notts County in the first round of this competition, while the Shrews shocked Blackburn before losing to Crystal Palace in the second round.
However, they did make it to the last 16 of the FA Cup before being knocked out by Manchester United.
This coming season’s fixture will be sandwiched between Town’s opening-day home clash with Brentford and the following Saturday’s away trip to Newcastle United.
