Mark Lillis has stepped in for his fourth spell as caretaker manager of Huddersfield Town following the departure of Chris Powell .
And how the popular 55-year-old former player would love to bring a tonic ahead of the international break in the shape of a derby win over Leeds United on Saturday.
Beating the side from Elland Road was a memorable part of his time wearing the blue and white stripes under Mick Buxton in the early Eighties.
Lillis went on to play for Manchester City, Derby County, Aston Villa, Scunthorpe United, Stockport County and Macclesfield Town.
His post-playing CV includes a spell as manager of Halifax Town (the original club) and coaching stints with Northern Ireland, Scunthorpe, Derby, Stockport and Morecambe.
Would Mark Lillis be a good choice as next Huddersfield Town manager?

His experience has several times proved key in steadying the ship during times of managerial upheaval.
His first caretaker spell, between Lee Clark and Simon Grayson , ended before a match was played.
After stepping in following the sacking of Grayson in January 2013, he picked up two wins and two draws in five games.
After after Mark Robins’ departure following the first game of last season, Lillis recorded two wins and a draw in six games before Powell’s arrival in September 2014.
First-team coach Steve Eyre played a big role alongside Lillis last time he took the reins , and the former Manchester City coach and Rochdale manager will again be heavily involved in preparing to face Leeds.
So too will Frankie Bunn, who has guided Town’s Under 21 team to eight successive victories.
