Huddersfield Town play their 4,000th Football League match at Wigan today, and of the previous 1,999 away games, the good, the bad and the plain crazy stand out.

The club’s record victory on their travels came at Bramall Lane back in November 1927, when Sheffield United were destroyed 7-1 in a top-flight clash.

George ‘Bomber’ Brown, responsible for 142 of Town’s 5,700 league goals to date, scored twice, as did Billy Smith and Alex Jackson. Tom Meads got the other.

At the opposite end of the spectrum is the 10-1 Division II (now Championship) drubbing by Manchester City at Maine Road in November 1987, Town’s heaviest defeat.

Paul Stewart, Tony Adcock and David White all scored hat tricks after Neil McNab, later to play for Town on loan from Tranmere, got the first.

As for the crazy, it has to be Charlton 7 Town 6 at The Valley in Division II in December, 1956, when Town led 5-1 after 62 minutes.

Les Massie (left), Alex Bain (2), Bill McGarry (penalty), Bob Ledger and Stan Howard netted.
