60% of Huddersfield Town fans believe the club should move to sign a new striker in the January transfer window.

We asked Terriers supporters to give us their views on how manager Chris Powell should approach the winter sales and, after the expiry of Grant Holt's loan spell at the club, it is clear in fans' minds a striker is a necessity.

Powell is reportedly looking to bolster both his attack and his backline and fans would appear to agree, with 33% of fans hoping to see a defender arrive during the coming weeks.

Otherwise, Town fans are largely content with the make-up of the squad, something which is reflected in the fact that just 3% are hoping for a new goalkeeper to come in and challenge or displace Alex Smithies and only 4% want a new midfielder.

We also asked Terriers fans to pick their choices for each respective position, with three chief contenders emerging for the striker role.

Town have already moved to distance themselves from rumours linking them to West Ham United forward Carlton Cole, but it has not dissuaded fans, with 29% suggesting him as a potential addition.

Nadir Ciftci has also been linked with the Terriers and 31% of fans would like to see the Dundee United hotshot in the blue and white stripes, while 32% are hoping the much sought-after Leicester City striker Chris Wood can be snared.

In defence, the two standout picks were Hull City's Harry Maguire, who attracted 29% of voters' interest, and Cardiff City central defender Sean Morrison.

The former Reading central defender, who only moved to the Bluebirds in the summer, is a popular figure at Town after a successful loan spell and 23% are hoping for a reunion.

Other options include former Town right-back Jack Hunt on loan from Crystal Palace and ex-trialist Sean St Ledger, with the duo securing 10% and 9% respectively.

Popular choices in midfield included the likes of Charlton Athletic skipper Johnnie Jackson, Dundee United duo Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong and Rangers midfielder Nicky Law.
