All you need to know ahead of Town’s Carabao Cup First Round tie

Huddersfield Town are in Carabao Cup action on Tuesday 9 August 2022, welcoming Preston North End to the John Smith’s Stadium for their First Round tie.

Tuesday will be the fourth League Cup meeting between the sides. The first came in 1965, whilst the last was in 2012.

Preston North End made it to the Fourth Round last season before being knocked out, losing 2-0 to Liverpool FC.


Last season, Preston finished 13th in the Sky Bet Championship with 64 points.


Managed by Ryan Lowe, the Lilywhites have opened their league season with 0-0 draws against Wigan Athletic and Hull City, currently sitting 16th in the Sky Bet Championship table this early in the season.


Liam Lindsay

The 26-year-old initially joined Preston on loan in February 2021, before making his move permanent in June 2021. Lindsay went on to play 13 times for the Lilywhites in the 2020/21 season, scoring twice in that period. 17 appearances then followed in the 2021/22 campaign, often playing at the centre of the left of a back three, something which the Scotsman will be looking to improve on this season.


Emil Riis Jakobsen

Jakobsen signed for Preston at the end of the 2020 summer transfer window, joining from Danish Superliga side Randers FC. The forward had already started the season with the Danish side and has scored twice in three games before joining North End. The 24-year-old was the top scorer for the Lilywhites last season after scoring 20 goals across all competitions and he will be looking to improve that this season.


Alan Browne

The midfielder signed for Preston from Cork City in January 2014. His breakout season came in 2017/18, before he was appointed Club Captain from the 2020/21 season. That same season, Browne made sure his name would go down in North End history as he became the 27th man to play 300 times or more for Preston. The 27-year-old’s performances have not gone unnoticed on the international stage, with Browne being called up regularly to the Republic of Ireland squad.



The tie between Town and Preston will go to penalties should the score be level after 90 minutes.

Each team will be able to name nine substitutes on the bench, with five of those players allowed onto the pitch across the 90 minutes in three opportunities – four if you count half time.


Town Head Coach Danny Schofield will provide an update on the fitness of his squad during his virtual press conference on Monday 8 August 2022.


Adults - £10
Under-18s -£5

Ambulant disabled supporters and wheelchair users should pay the relevant price, with companion going free of charge.

As is the norm, the Magic Rock Brewing South Stand will be split between home and away fans and, therefore, the Cowshed Loyal will be able to remain in their usual spot.

Town beaten

- Huddersfield Town Preston North End
- Town knocked out of the Carabao Cup
- Jordan Rhodes on the scoresheet

Huddersfield Town were knocked out of the Carabao Cup First Round on Tuesday evening, losing 1-4 to Preston North End at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The visitors dominated proceedings throughout, with a 0-3 scoreline at half-time leaving the Terriers with a mountain to climb.

Preston scored the first goal of the game in the sixth minute. Lee Nicholls saved the initial shot, but Troy Parrott was able to find the back of the net with the rebound.

Nicholls was called into action twice, four minutes later, as Parrott once again got the ball at the edge of the box and took it past the Town defence, before Brad Potts hit the crossbar shortly after.

The 19th minute saw Ali McCann score Preston’s second, sending an effort from the centre of the box into the bottom right corner.

10 minutes later, the Lilywhites scored their third, with McCann getting his brace., A cross from Álvaro Fernández from the side of the box landed at the feet of McCann, leaving him to slot it into the bottom corner.

The Terriers did find the back of the net in the 43rd minute, but Jordan Rhodes’ effort was ruled offside by the linesman.

The Lilywhites continued the second half as they had finished the first, with their their fourth goal of the evening coming in the 51st minute as Potts’ shot was deflected into the back of the net.

Town pushed forward, with second-half substitute Sorba Thomas making a great run forward, before crossing the ball into the box for Rhodes. Unfortunately, Freddie Woodman caught the ball safely before the striker could get his head to it.

The Terriers did get a goal back less than five minutes later, when second half substitute Tino Anjorin sent an excellent through ball to Rhodes, who then went one on one with the Preston stopper and slotted the ball into the bottom right corner.

The 72nd minute saw Thomas shoot from outside the box with force, but it was straight at Woodman.

The final real chance of the game fell to Town in added time. Second half substitute Jack Rudoni was set up by fellow substitute Ben Jackson, but it was well saved by Woodman.

This was followed by a flurry of shots from Anjorin, Jackson, and Rudoni – none of which came to anything.

The Terriers are back in League action on Saturday 13 August when they welcome Stoke City to the John Smith’s Stadium.
