Huddersfield Town head to Watford this weekend looking to recover from the midweek disappointment of a 2-0 Capital One Cup defeat to Nottingham Forest, as Mark Lillis takes charge of the sixth game of his latest interim tenure.

The trip to Vicarage Road represents a return to league matters for Town and a return to a ground where the Terriers secured a 4-1 win on the final day of the 2013/2014 season, although the task looks an altogether more difficult one this time around.

Given the tough start Town have had on paper, the Terriers would have been forgiven for earmarking the trip to Watford as one where points could potentially be secured, the Hornets' strong start to the league season sees them lie second behind Forest on nine points and boasting the second-best goalscoring record in the Championship to date.

Our Town reporter Doug Thomson will be at Watford this weekend to take in proceedings - and he says the Terriers face a difficult ask in securing a result against a side blessed with the attacking talents of Troy Deeney and Matej Vydra, but he believes a point would represent a job well done.

Watch the video above to see Doug discuss the threat the Hornets' strike duo and Fernando Forestieri will pose to the Town defence, the signing of Jack Robinson and how the international break affords the club time to accelerate their pursuit of a new manager.
