Conor Coady says Huddersfield Town have a big point to prove when they host Leeds United in the 64th West Yorkshire derby on Saturday.

The midfielder clearly recalls his side’s 3-0 Championship defeat at Elland Road in September – and is determined the help put the record straight.

“You could say we owe them one, and we certainly owe our supporters after the result over there,” said the 21-year-old former Liverpool player.

“We know it hurt the fans, but it hurt us as well, and we really want to make up for what happened and show that wasn’t the real Huddersfield Town.”

Coady’s third Town goal clinched Saturday’s 1-0 win at Wigan Athletic, and Chris Powell’s side are now chasing a fourth win in five league games.

“It’s a massive match for us,” added Coady, a £375,000 August signing from Anfield who has featured in all Town’s 30 games so far this season.

“We want to carry on from Wigan, have a good week on the training pitch and build on the good things we have done over the last few weeks.

“Apart from the odd dip, we have been pretty good at home this season and we want to carry that form on and get another three points.”

Leeds chase a third straight win over Town and a first double since 1938-39 buoyed by a 1-0 win over high-flying Bournemouth.

They will be without Italian defender Giuseppe Bellusci, who was sent off during the Elland Road triumph sealed by Luke Murphy.

New midfield signing Granddi N’Goyi is hoping to make his debut after moving on loan from Palermo.

Leeds, who have won 20 of the previous 63 league clashes with Town, who have 26 victories, have also taken defender Sol Bamba on loan from the Italian club.
