Boss David Wagner is set to face the media at PPG Canalside this afternoon ahead of Huddersfield Town's clash with Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.

Currently sitting eighth in the table having claimed nine points from six games it’s been a great start to the club’s inaugural Premier League campaign.

However the visit of Spurs to the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday (kick-off 12.30pm) is without doubt Town's toughest test of the campaign so far.

The encounter will be broadcast live on SKY and is the final match ahead of next week's international break before Town return to action away to Swansea City on Saturday, October 14.

The Examiner's Rory Benson will be on hand to report live from the pre-match press conference with Blake Welton back in the office providing all the up-to-date news via the LIVE Blog below.

Every. Single. Word.
