PETER CLARKE wants Huddersfield Town to create Football League history tomorrow with a “statement win” over Notts County at the Galpharm.
Lee Clark’s second-placed team go into the League I game level with Nottingham Forest’s unbeaten sequence of 42 league games registered 33 years ago.
Only Forest’s arch-rivals County can deny Town a stand-alone entry in the record books, and Clarke is determined to keep the campaign on course.
“We know we’re in for a tough game because Notts have started the season well and are handily placed (in sixth),” said the skipper.
“But we’re in no mood to let things slip and we’ve had a good week on the training ground, so all the boys are looking forward to this one.”
Town aim to hit back after the disappointing 4-1 FA Cup first-round defeat at Swindon (Notts were 4-1 home winners over Accrington).
“The result certainly wasn’t what we has hoped for,” said Clarke.
“But tomorrow’s game gives us the chance to prove it was just a blip, and our aim is to make a statement in front of our own fans.”
Town have striker Jordan Rhodes back from Scotland duty and defender Jack Hunt returns from suspension.
And on-loan Hull centre-back Liam Cooper is available after being ineligible for the Swindon trip.
