All you need to know ahead of our next Sky Bet Championship fixture

- Watford vs Huddersfield Town
- Friday 7 April 2023; 3pm kick-off
- Available to watch and listen to on iFollow HTAFC

The Terriers continue their Sky Bet Championship campaign when they travel to Watford on Friday 7 April for our first Easter fixture, in a 3pm kick-off.

In the last meeting, the Terriers suffered a 2-0 loss in our first home game after the World Cup break in December, which we will be looking to rectify when we travel to Vicarage Road.


Watford currently sit 11th in the Sky Bet Championship after 39 games, just six points behind Blackburn Rovers who sit sixth in the Play-Off places. 

The Hornets come into this game off the back of an away 2-0 loss against Luton Town on Saturday 1 April after the international break, Watford have won one, drawn two and lost two of their last five games.

Chris Wilder was appointed manager of Watford at the beginning of March 2023 on a contract until the end of the season after the dismissal of Slaven Bilić.


Hassane Kamara

The left-sided defender signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Hornets in January 2022 from Ligue One side OGC Nice. Kamara arrived at Vicarage Road having achieved close to 100 appearances in the French top tier for Nice and Stade de Reims. Kamara scored his first goal for Watford in the Premier League against Manchester City in April 2022. This season, the Ivory Coast international has made two assists within his 26 appearances.

João Pedro

Pedro is joint top scorer for Watford so far this season, alongside Ismaїla Sarr, he has scored nine goals and created three assists in the 29 appearances he has made. The 21-year-old signed a five-year contract with the Hornets on 1 January 2020. The forward scored his first Premier League goal for Watford against Manchester United and then went to score two more that season (2021/22) against Newcastle United.

Ismaїla Sarr

Sarr also has nine goals to his name so far this season, with six assists to go with them in his 31 appearances. The Senegal international arrived at Watford in the summer of 2019 on a five-year contract. During his debut season at Watford in the Premier League, Sarr scored six times, including a brace against Liverpool in a 3-0 win. The 25-year-old won Watford’s Player of the Season award for the 2020/21 season as he scored 13 goals and created four assists as the Hornets won immediate promotion back to the Premier League from the Sky Bet Championship.

Match Reports


7 April 2023

Warnock inspires team to another win!

Town’s 3-2 win at Watford - a third straight win for the first time in this Sky Bet Championship season - lifted the side out of the relegation zone!

Jack Rudoni’s late first-half equaliser – his first for the Club and in the division – meant the game was all level at the interval at Vicarage Road, but then strikes from Matty Pearson and a first Town goal for substitute Kian Harratt gave us a lead that we didn’t relinquish.

The sparked great scenes of celebration in front of the magnificent travelling supporters, who backed the side brilliantly in the sun.

Manager Neil Warnock made only one change to the side that defeated Middlesbrough the previous weekend, with the injured Duane Holmes replaced by David Kasumu. There was a change in shape, however, as the Terriers matched up their hosts in a 5-3-2 formation, with Rarmani Edmonds-Green moving to right wing back.

With around 1,300 Town fans in great voice behind them, the men in blue and white started the game well. As early as the fourth minute, Josh Ruffels won possession deep in the Watford half and found Danny Ward, who could only scuff his effort straight at the goalkeeper.

At the other end, the Hornets possess clear individual quality and always pose a threat. Their first chance came in the 10th minute when the impressive Ismael Kone turned infield from the Town right and tried his luck, only to shoot over the crossbar.

Rudoni was lively all afternoon and he almost ran clear into the box down our left four minutes later, only for former Hibs centre back Ryan Porteous to crudely upend him to stop the danger. He earned a yellow card for that challenge, from which Rudoni’s free kick was volleyed wide – via a deflection – by Kasumu.

Watford were being restricted to shots from distance by Town’s defensive shape, with star man Joao Pedro hitting an effort straight at Tomáš Vaclík in the 19th minute before Joao Ferreira fared similarly moments later. Midfielder Imran Louza’s 22nd minute effort was better, forcing the Czech goalkeeper to spring to his right and push the ball around the post.

In-form Josh Koroma, playing up front with Ward, had a fantastic opening 45 minutes, with his direct dribbling style causing the home defence real issues. He was set away by Edmonds-Green’s ball-winning challenge in the 25th minute and, after skipping past Wesley Hoedt, he found Ward in the middle with a great low cross, only for Porteous to slide in with an excellent block.

Town continued to press with a corner on the half hour mark, won by Kasumu and Rudoni. Jack’s deep cross was met by the head of Tom Lees, allowing Michał Helik to square for fellow centre back Matty Pearson. Matty tried to sweep the ball home first time, but could only turn it wide of the near post.

Sadly, Watford took the lead two minutes later with another effort from outside the area. This time midfielder Yaser Asprilla received the ball on our left and stepped inside to create half a yard inside Matty Pearson before hitting a rasping drive that flew between Vaclík and the near post.

That was harsh on Town, and they deserved the late goal that sent them into the interval on level terms. Before that Asprilla turned a good cross from Kone wide before Ward was just denied by Craig Cathcart’s block – and then it was time for Jack Rudoni to break his duck!

With a minute of the half remaining, Koroma again drove down the right side and sent another fantastic, powerful low cross towards Ward. A defender managed to get a foot to the ball, but only succeeded in deflecting it into Rudoni’s path. Jack took one touch to get the ball on his favoured left before reversing a low drive past Daniel Bachmann’s left from around 15 yards.

Pedro headed over early in the second half for Watford, but then Town took control thanks to a third goal in two games for Pearson. Kasumu won a foul just over halfway that earned Pedro a booking, which allowed Rudoni to lift the ball into the Watford area; Pearson got his head to the ball and knocked it down, where Ward’s presence stopped the goalkeeper from moving until it was too late, with the ball nestling inside the far post!

Watford made a double change immediately after this, and Warnock immediately matched their shape, moving to a back four and pushing Edmonds-Green infield. The hosts applied some territorial pressure without properly testing our goal – and then we grabbed a dramatic third.

With eight minutes left, Warnock introduced Kian Harratt for an exhausted Ward. On his second Championship appearance – his first since December 2019 – Kian ran on the pitch, straight across the far post and nodded in Koroma’s excellent near post cross for his first senior goal in Town colours!

Koroma deserved so much credit again for bursting pass full back Ngakia and supplying the cross.

Britt Assombalonga netted a 92nd minute goal to reduce the arrears and keep the nerves jangling, but the pressure was alleviated when home goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann earned two yellow cards in barely two minutes to receive his marching orders, and killing time in the process.

Town’s team (5-3-2)
Tomáš Vaclík; Rarmani Edmonds-Green (Scott High, 68’), Tom Lees, Michał Helik, Matty Pearson, Josh Ruffels; David Kasumu, Jonathan Hogg, Jack Rudoni; Josh Koroma, Danny Ward (Kian Harratt, 82’)
