Fans are hoping for further capital gains when Huddersfield Town host Fulham in the second of two home clashes with London opposition in five days.
That 5-0 destruction of Charlton Athletic on Tuesday has certainly added to the feelgood facfor around the club.
It’s now five without defeat for David Wagner’s side in all competitions and three wins in four in the Championship.
Town have won 22 of their previous 59 league clashes with Fulham. But the last of them came back in September 1993, nine meetings ago, when Stuart Hicks sealed a 1-0 Division II (now League I) win under Neil Warnock in front of 5,616 at Leeds Road.
Town had another centre-back, Mark Hudson, on the scoresheet against Charlton.
And how the captain, who started his career at Fulham, would like to lead the way to another win over one of his former clubs.
Town should really have won at Craven Cottage back in August.
They led through Nahki Wells, only for Cauley Woodrow to level in stoppage time.
Both clubs have changed bosses since then.
Wagner is making his mark as Town’s head coach, while Slavisa Jokanovic has replaced Kit Symons at Fulham.
The Serbian led Watford to the Premier League last season, and has managed Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Champions League this time around.
This will be only his fourth match as Fulham’s team chief, and he has so far suffered three defeats, including two by Sheffield Wednesday (in the league and FA Cup third round).
It seems Fulham, who are 19th after Tuesday’s 3-2 loss at Wolves, are playing a similar style to 16th-placed Town, but aren’t as far down the road in terms of adapting to the new tactics.
“I am trying to find the way for the team. We are not playing the same way that Fulham did before,” said Jokanovic after the Molineux setback.
“We are a very good team with the ball but right now very soft without the ball. It is important to try and have more time with the ball in our possession to stop suffering so much. This is the plan we have for the future.
“I cannot blame my players as they tried to follow the plan. At the end we lost the game but they did many, many positive things.”
It’s key Town keep Jokanovic waiting for his first Fulham point and maintain that upward curve.
