Huddersfield Town are back on the road on Saturday 23 October 2021 when they travel to the Vitality Stadium to take on AFC Bournemouth; 3pm kick-off.

Town go into Saturday’s game looking to extend their unbeaten run to five, following their 0-0 draw with Birmingham City on Wednesday 20 October 2021.

Bournemouth come into the game off the back of 1-0 win over Stoke City on Tuesday 19 October.

THE OPPOSITION

The conclusion of last season saw Bournemouth finish sixth in the Sky Bet Championship table.

Their Play-Off Semi-Final saw them beat Brentford in the First Leg, before being beaten 3-2 on aggregate following the second.

The 2020/21 season saw the Cherries play under two managers. Jason Tindall was appointed in August 2020, but left in February 2021 after a poor run of results.

Having joined Bournemouth’s coaching staff in February 2021, Jonathan Woodgate was appointed caretaker manager two days later. He was given the role until the end of the season, but left in June following the Club’s Play-Off result.

They appointed former Fulham Manager Scott Parker as their Head Coach on 28 June 2021.

The Cherries have had an impressive start to the 2021/22 campaign, sitting top of the Sky Bet Championship table with 31 points from 13 games.

ONES TO WATCH

Dominic Solanke

Solanke signed for Bournemouth from Liverpool in January 2019. He made his debut in a 2-0 away loss to Cardiff City in February 2019. The 2020/21 season saw the striker net 15 goals in 40 appearances, making him the Club’s joint top goalscorer alongside Arnaut Danjuma. He also got nine assists in the process. The 24-year-old has started the current campaign in a similar style, currently sitting as the Cherries’ top goalscorer with eight goals, including one against Stoke City on Tuesday 19 October 2021.

Ryan Christie

The midfielder joined the Cherries ahead of the current season. Making the move from Celtic, he put pen-to-paper on a three-year contract. Christie made his debut 11 days after signing, coming off the bench in the Club’s 3-0 win over Barnsley. The Scotland international has appeared in all eight games since his arrival, and currently holds the title for the most assists for Bournemouth, with four. Two of those came in the Cherries’ 2-1 win over Luton Town in September 2021.

Philip Billing

A familiar face to Town fans, the 25-year-old signed with Bournemouth in July 2019. Putting pen-to-paper on a long-term contract, he scored his first goals for the Cherries in their FA Cup Third Round fixture against Luton Town. The 2020/21 season saw the midfielder make 34 appearances and find the back of the net on eight occasions. Playing higher up the pitch than he did at Town appears to be paying off for Billing, who has bagged five goals in 12 appearances so far during the current campaign.

Match Reports

REPORT: AFC BOURNEMOUTH 3-0 TOWN

23 October 2021

Town beaten on the road

- Huddersfield Town fall to 3-0 defeat
- Goals either side of half-time seal win for Bournemouth
- Town move on to Millwall on Saturday 30 September 2021

Huddersfield Town fell to a 3-0 defeat to AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

A frustrating game for Town saw a brace from Dominic Solanke and Lloyd Kelly either side of half-time saw the Cherries walk away with all three Sky Bet Championship points.

Bournemouth started the brighter of the two sides, holding onto the ball well and winning themselves a corner in the fourth minute. Thankfully, it was cleared well by Naby Sarr, and then Sorba Thomas.

Town had a half chance just moments later, as Fraizer Campbell worked well to get the ball from Cahill. Unfortunately for Town’s striker, he was chased down before he could get off a shot.

The eighth minute saw the hosts handed a penalty as Ollie Turton brought down Solanke in the box. Solanke stepped up to take it, and sent Nicholls the wrong way to put Bournemouth ahead.

The game began to settle for a period, with Bournemouth holding the majority of possession.

The Terriers were given a free kick in a great position in the 17th minute following a foul on Harry Toffolo. However, Bournemouth defended Thomas’ free kick well, with Mark Travers able to punch it clear.

The hosts doubled their lead just moments later. Ryan Christie clipped the ball in to Philip Billing, who nodded it over to Solanke to hit home from close range.

A big chance fell Town’s way in the 29th minute. Gavin Kilkenny brought down Josh Koroma on the edge of the box. Thomas tried an effort from the free kick, but it fired well over.

Gary Cahill took a chance of his own a minute later, but his drive was straight at Lee Nicholls.

The final chance of the first half fell to Town in the 35th minute. Some good work from Thomas saw the ball break to Campbell, but his shot from range couldn’t find the target.

Bournemouth started the second half as they had the first, with an early strike from Christie being well saved by Nicholls.

Town began to press well high up the field and created an opening for Campbell, but Bournemouth were able to block his strike.

The hosts added their third goal in the 65th minute. Kelly was first to meet Christie’s cross, and sent it past Nicholls from close range.

Second half substitute Danny Ward almost had the perfect start to his introduction. The forward had the ball over the line after Koroma’s shot hit the crossbar, but his header was flagged offside.

Bournemouth tried their luck at a fourth, but Matty Pearson produced an excellent block to deny Morgan Rogers.

The hosts tried a few late challenges in the closing minutes, but the final whistle eventually blew, seeing Bournemouth walk away with the win.

Town’s Line-Up (3-4-3)

Lee Nicholls; Naby Sarr (Danel Sinani, 56’), Tom Lees, Matty Pearson; Harry Toffolo, Lewis O’Brien, Jonathan Hogg, Ollie Turton; Josh Koroma, Fraizer Campbell (Duane Holmes, 62‘), Sorba Thomas (Danny Ward, 70’)
