WATCH: Huddersfield Town writer Doug Thomson previews the West Yorkshire derby

The Examiner's Town writer previews the Terriers' trip to Elland Road this weekend as Chris Powell looks for his first win as Town manager


Huddersfield Town will look to secure their first three points of the Chris Powell era on Saturday when they travel to Leeds United for an eagerly-anticipated West Yorkshire derby.

The Terriers claimed their first draw under Powell's tutelage on Wednesday night with a 0-0 draw against Wigan Athletic as they recovered from the late setback in the 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Powell said he wants his side to "play the game, not the occasion" at his pre-match press conference this morning as Town gear up for a return to the ground where they suffered a 5-1 mauling last season.

Our Town reporter Doug Thomson will be at Elland Road this weekend to cast his eye over events - and he says Powell and his charges can approach this game with renewed confidence after a good defensive performance against Wigan.

Watch the video above to see Doug discuss the 4-3-3 setup, the decision to field Nahki Wells wide as a result and how this would represent the perfect time for Powell to win his first three points.
