Jan Siewert will be hoping his Huddersfield Town side can return to winning ways as the Club welcomes Eddie Howe’s AFC Bournemouth to the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday 9 March; 3pm kick-off.
The Head Coach will be hoping his side can clinch all three points following Saturday’s 1-0 away defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.
AFC Bournemouth currently sit 12th in the Premier League table but has failed to win any of the last 10 games on its travels.
The visitors come into Saturday’s game on the back of a 1-0 home defeat to league leaders Manchester City.
Howe has been the man in the dugout for the Cherries since 2012 with the former AFC Bournemouth defender remarkably guiding the Club from League 1 to the Premier League during his second managerial spell in charge of the Dorset side.
The reverse fixture saw AFC Bournemouth clinch a 2-1 victory in December 2018, however, an early Alex Pritchard goal set Town on course for a 4-1 home victory over this weekend’s visitors in February 2018.
