Huddersfield Town will look to bounce back from the setback of a stoppage-time defeat to Middlesbrough when they host Wigan Athletic tomorrow night.

Chris Powell's first game in charge of the Terriers looked set to yield a 1-1 stalemate after Jonathan Stead's late leveller but an inexplicable foul from Tommy Smith on Adam Reach presented Grant Leadbitter with the chance to steal the spoils from the penalty spot, which he gleefully accepted.

The 2-1 reverse proved a baptism of fire for Powell, whose side were outplayed by a comfortable Boro outfit and admitted after the game that plenty of work has to be done to make Town competitive in a tough-looking Championship.

The visit of Uwe Rosler's men represents a second home game in quick succession and a chance to lift what is becoming an increasingly weighty monkey on the back of securing a first home win since March 1 - when they routed Barnsley 5-0.

Our Town reporter Doug Thomson will be at the John Smith's Stadium tomorrow night to observe the action and he says the Terriers must go back to basics if they are to secure a positive result after three successive defeats in all competitions.

Watch the video above to see Doug discuss the tactical decisions made by Powell against Middlesbrough, his surprise at the start Wigan have made and Town's worrying striker situation.
