TOWN will be having sleepless nights about facing nightmare opponent Anthony Knockaert once again, Leicester striker David Nugent believes.
The Frenchman has tortured Town twice already this season, scoring four times in the two Championship meetings between the clubs.
The 21-year-old summer signing from Guingamp produced two stunning individual strikes as City won 2-0 at the John Smith’s.
And he grabbed another double and set up two more as City hammered Town 6-1 at the King Power Stadium on New Year’s Day.
Nugent believes Knockaert, who has scored seven times for Leicester, has a psychological edge over Town after his match-winning performances.
“Anthony has a great record against them and he likes playing against Huddersfield,” said the experienced former Bury, Preston, Portsmouth and England man.
“He has scored four in two against them and they will be worrying about that.
“It will probably be in their minds about how good he is and they will know how good we are.”
City boss Nigel Pearson acknowledged Knockaert has been a thorn in Town’s side but said City carry other potent threats.
“Anthony has been very good in those games but the team has also played very well in the games we have played so far,” he said.
