“All I hear is that the town and every supporter can’t wait for this game against Everton - bring it on!”

"We've not only achieved the goal [of staying up], we've played some extremely entertaining games."

Tell me about Everton
The Toffees got off to a woeful start to the campaign under Ronald Koeman, compounded by the fact the Dutchman had spent a club record £142m on new talent in the summer.
However, since Big Sam's appointment, Everton have gone on to pick up 30 points from 21 games – the sixth highest points tally in the top-flight during that period.
The Toffees also come into the game off the back of a 1-0 win over Newcastle United on Monday night and are without a defeat in their last three games.
Huddersfield Town vs Everton: All-Time League Head-To-Head Record

The Toffees won a second-round Carling Cup clash 5-1 in 2010 and triumphed 3-2 across two Worthington Cup legs in 1998.
The sides met four times in Town’s two-year top-flight stay in the early 70’s, with three ending in stalemates.
They also shared an entertaining 2-2 draw at Goodison on Boxing Day 1971, with Frank Worthington and Jimmy Lawson on target for the Terriers.
