Swindon have got the toughest draw possible in the FA Cup first round says Huddersfield Town loanee Liam Ridehalgh

LIAM RIDEHALGH has told Swindon they’ve got the toughest draw possible against Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup first round.

LIAM RIDEHALGH has told Swindon they’ve got the toughest draw possible against Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup first round.

The 20-year-old Town left-back is on loan at the County Ground until the end of December, meaning he will not be allowed to face his parent club next Saturday.

Ridehalgh is disappointed he can’t play, but he is relishing watching the battle on the pitch unfold from the stands.

“I am looking forward to seeing everyone,” he said. “Obviously I can’t play but I am looking forward to seeing the manager and my old teammates, so it will be nice.

“I would have liked to play, but it will be good to watch and be able to compare the two teams.”

He added: “I think Huddersfield are the best team in League I by far.

“My club have the best squad and though we didn’t get promoted last season I feel we will do it this year. It is the hardest game for Swindon, with all the teams that are involved.”
