Huddersfield Town take on Leeds United this weekend in the latest West Yorkshire derby meeting and arrive at Elland Road hellbent on making up for last season's 5-1 evisceration.
Ross McCormack - now of struggling Fulham - netted a hat-trick as Leeds secured a thumping win against a Town side who were unable to convert enough of the 21 shots on goal they had into something tangible.
Chris Powell secured his first point as Terriers boss in the week with a battling 0-0 draw against Wigan Athletic and the defence appears to be settled, leaving the manager bullish about his side's chances this weekend.
But how have Town fared against their West Yorkshire rivals in recent times?
The two teams have met each other 10 times since Leeds fell into the third tier of English football in 2007 and only the 11th time since the turn of the millennium if you encompass the 2-1 Carling Cup defeat at Elland Road in 2004.
Here are the two clubs' meetings in chronological order during that time.
Leeds United 4-0 Huddersfield Town - 08 December 2007 (League One)
The Whites' first league meeting with Town since 1987 saw future Terriers striker Jermaine Beckford strike twice in a four-goal rout.
In front of a 32,501 crowd - the highest at third-tier level since 1979 - Jonathan Douglas got the ball rolling for Leeds with a long-range strike before Beckford took centre stage by sliding home a first and tucking away a rebound for his second.
Tore Andre Flo compounded Town's misery with a fourth late on with a tap-in but the scoreline flattered the hosts, who were ultimately clinical.
Huddersfield Town 1-0 Leeds United - 15 April 2008 (League One)
Town's first win over their old rivals for 23 years came courtesy of an Andy Holdsworth header in a hotly-contested encounter which saw both sides end the game with 10 men.
Douglas enjoyed no such success this time around as he received his marching orders for two yellow cards before Jon Worthington saw red for a tussle with Leeds defender Lubomir Michailk.
But it was Town who capitalised when Holdsworth nodded home from a Joe Skarz centre before a frantic finale which saw Melvin Kamara denied by Casper Ankergren before Dougie Freedman squandered the visitors' most presentable opportunity.
Leeds United 1-2 Huddersfield Town - 15 November 2008 (League One)
The Terriers secured their first triumph at Elland Road for some 25 years in the most dramatic fashion thanks to Michael Collins 90th-minute winner.
Town trailed after just four minutes to Robert Snodgrass after the Scot converted a cross from Luciano Becchiobut an error from Leeds goalkeeper Ankergren allowed Skarz to prod home from close range to level the scores.
And the turnaround was complete deep into stoppage time as Collins tucked home from Danny Cadamarteri's cross to send the travelling Town fans into delirium.
Huddersfield Town 1-0 Leeds United - 14 February 2009 (League One)
It may have taken place on Valentine's Day, but there was certainly no love lost at the then Galpharm Stadium as the Terriers secured their first three consecutive victories over their foes for the first time since 1930.
They grabbed all three points through Nathan Clarke's thumping first-half header as he met Gary Roberts' corner before Alex Smithies was called upon to deny Leeds winger Andy Robinson.
The visitors dominated in the second period with Snodgrass forcing another stop from Smithies before Richard Naylor struck a post late on.
Leeds United 2-2 Huddersfield Town - 5 December 2009 (League One)
Former manager Lee Clark saw his side twice recover from being behind to force a 2-2 draw at Elland Road and maintain Town's unbeaten run in this fixture to four matches.
Town conceded early to Snodgrass once more here, with the winger slotting home after a gaffe from Smithies, but Lee Novak hit back just after the break with a header from Peter Clarke's deflected effort.
Leeds restored their advantage through a Max Gradel drive but Jordan Rhodes equalised with just 12 minutes left when he nodded home before Anthony Pilkington went within inches of a winner by smashing the crossbar in the latter stages.
Huddersfield Town 2-2 Leeds United - 27 February 2010 (League One)
Town were forced to fight back for a point once more, but only after they relinquished an early lead in another pulsating clash between the two sides.
Pilkington fired the hosts in front after 13 minutes with a deflected effort in a half Town largely dominated, but they were pegged back through Jonathan Howson as he headed home a Snodgrass cross.
Becchio then found the net with a header before Roberts salvaged a point five minutes from time by lashing home past Ankergren.
Huddersfield Town 2-4 Leeds United - 1 December 2012 (Championship)
With Leeds sealing promotion in 2009/2010 and Town having to wait until the 2011/2012 campaign to seal a return to the second flight, this was the first meeting between the two teams in two years and it was Leeds who claimed the bragging rights.
Town established an early advantage, with Chris Atkinson scoring his first and, ultimately, only goal for the club with a well-taken finish past Paddy Kenny, after former Leeds man Adam Clayton had played him in with a sliderule pass before the vistiors came back strongly.
They equalised through Michael Tonge, whose speculative shot squirmed underneath Smithies before McCormack teed up Becchio to slot expertly past Smithies from the edge of the area.
In a breathless encounter, Clayton levelled it up once more from the penalty spot after Becchio had tugged back Clarke and it prompted a sprint downfield to celebrate in front of then Leeds boss Neil Warnock, who had managed him at Elland Road.
Warnock received the plaudits by throwing on winger Ryan Hall - proving to be a decisive moment in the match. He teed up David Norris to volley Leeds back in front before Becchio headed home a Hall centre to round things off.
Leeds United 1-2 Huddersfield Town - 16 March 2013 (Championship)
Town boosted their bid for survival as top scorer James Vaughan netted a late winner at Elland Road.
On-loan Leicester City midfielder Neil Danns handed the Terriers a 54th-minute advantage with his first goal from Vaughan's header, but Aidy White soon levelled things up just moments after stepping off the bench when he headed home following a Jack Hunt error.
But Hunt would have the last laugh, playing in Vaughan to slot beyond Kenny at his near post in a game which featured plenty of chances, with Leeds twice hitting the crossbar and Town's matchwinner also being foiled by the woodwork.
Huddersfield Town 3-2 Leeds United - 26 October 2013 (Championship)
Jonathan Stead's most decisive contribution in a Huddersfield Town shirt was to plunder the winner in the West Yorkshire derby in yet another game crammed full of goals.
Town fell behind early in this fixture once more, with Matt Smith the beneficiary this time by heading home Alex Mowatt's corner after just two minutes, but Danny Ward equalised with a fierce drive past Kenny from an Adam Hammill delivery.
Hammill then forced Town's second by seeing his cross turned into his own net by the unfortunate Tom Lees before Leeds looked to have secured a share of the spoils when new signing Dexter Blackstock got his head to a free-kick into the penalty area with his very first touch.
It was left to homegrown product Stead to net the winner as he collected a Sean Scannell pass and crashed home a low shot to seal a second consecutive win over the enemy.
Leeds United 5-1 Huddersfield Town - 1 February 2014 (Championship)
The most recent meeting between the two sides - and the one that haunts Town fans most. From one perspective, tomorrow's game cannot come quick enough for Town fans as they look to banish the scoreline from their memories.
Amid uncertainty over manager Brian McDermott's position at the club, Leeds ruthlessly disposed of a wasteful Huddersfield side, who could feasibly have won the game on another day based on the chances they created.
But it wasn't to be, irrespective of Ward's crisp finish early on which put the Terriers in the asendancy but - crucially - the led was relinquished right on the stroke of half-time as McCormack tucked home from close in.
The Scot was an influential figure for his now former side that afternoon and teed up Jimmy Kebe for an important second goal just five minutes after the restart before firing home from Rodolph Austin and Cameron Stewart deliveries.
The win was sealed when youngster Mowatt chipped home from 20 yards eight minutes from time to leave Town and their fans utterly shellshocked.
