All you need to know ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship game

Huddersfield Town continue their Sky Bet Championship season on Saturday 17 September 2022 when they welcome Cardiff City to the John Smith’s Stadium; 3pm kick-off.

Town come into this game following a 2-1 loss at home to Wigan Athletic.

Cardiff City come into this game following a 3-2 victory away at Middlesbrough during the week, scoring their three goals within the first half.


This is Cardiff City’s third consecutive season in the Sky Bet Championship as they were relegated from the Premier League in the 20218/19 season - the same season as Town – and they will be looking to push on from their 18th place finish last season.

Steve Morison was appointed as caretaker manager following Mick McCarthy's departure in October 2021, with his first win in charge coming against Huddersfield in November 2021.

Although Morison was initially contracted until the end of the 2021/22 season, positive results saw him sign a contract extension running until the end of the 2022/23 season.


Perry Ng

The right back signed for the Bluebirds in January 2021 from Crewe Alexandra on a three-and-a-half-year deal. From 2004, Perry spent 10 years rising through the Crewe Alexandra academy before signing his first professional contract. The 26-year-old was named Alexandra’s captain in 2019 and was included in the PFA League Two Team of the Year for 2019/20. Perry has appeared in eight games so far this season, scoring Cardiff’s third goal in their 3-2 victory over Middlesbrough during the week.

Romaine Sawyers

A new signing for the Bluebirds this season, Sawyers joined on a two-year deal from West Bromwich Albion after his second spell at the Hawthorns ended in the summer. The midfielder went through the ranks with the Baggies and signed professionally for them but spent initial stints on loan with Port Vale, Shrewsbury Town, and Walsall. From that loan spell with Walsall, they signed him permanently in 2013 and he made over 160 appearances and scored 16 goals during that time before moving on to Brentford and then returning to West Brom. The 30-year-old has appeared in every league game since joining Cardiff and has scored two goals from outside the box.

Sheyi Ojo

Having previously spent a season on loan with the Bluebirds, Ojo returned on a permanent contract in the summer of 2022 before the start of this season from Liverpool. The attacker broke through the youth ranks at Liverpool and after being named in the First Team squad on several occasions, he went on multiple loan spells in order to gain senior football experience. His loan clubs included Wigan Athletic, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Fulham, Reims, Reims II, Rangers, Cardiff City and Millwall – his loan season with Cardiff City saw him make over 40 appearances, scoring five goals and providing seven assists.

Huddersfield town secure their second win of the season!

- Huddersfield Town 1-0 Cardiff City
- Terriers' second win of the season
- Jordan Rhodes gets himself on the scoresheet

Huddersfield Town secured a second win of the season on Saturday afternoon, beating Cardiff City 1-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium.

An early goal for the Terriers from Jordan Rhodes secured the second win of the season under the leadership of Narcís Pèlach.

Town will play more fluid football through the course of the season, but today wasn't the day for that. Instead, the Terriers showed the spirit that the home faithful can really relate to and took the game to the visitors in a high pressing, front foot first half.

Pèlach cahnged the shape of the team to a 4-2-3-1 and introduced 19-year-old Etienne Camara into the side for his first Championship start. The Frenchman repaid that faith, working excellently with the all-action David Kasumu in midfield.

Lees and Helik were in great form behind him as Town kept a welcome first clean sheet of the season, with Lee Nicholls saving another penalty in the first half. 

The first piece of action in the game was the goal from Jordan Rhodes in the eighth minute that put Town ahead, assisted by a pass from Duane Holmes. After Duane, on his 100th appearance for the Club, drove the ball down the pitch, Rhodes was able to strike the ball from the edge of the box into the bottom right corner of the net.

This was closely followed by a shot on target from Holmes after a through ball sent him down the right side, he then took the ball into the box and took his shot, but this was saved by the Cardiff City shot stopper.

Callum Robinson then fancied his chances from outside the box as Cardiff searched for an early equaliser, however, his shot went high over the crossbar.

A penalty was then awarded in favour of Cardiff City as Tino Anjorin was adjudged to have put a high foot on Andy Rinomhota as he tried to clear the ball that came in from a corner kick. Robinson stepped up to take the penalty, but Lee Nicholls confidently went the right way, and the ball was delivered safely to the ‘keeper's gloves.

The Bluebirds didn’t stop there as their next chance came from defender Perry Ng, with another shot from outside the box, but it goes wide to left and that side was covered by Nicholls.

Although Town continued to press well and not let have the visitors have too much space, Cardiff City were awarded a free kick on the line of the penalty box in the last action before half time, which went straight through the wall and comfortable into Nicholls’ hands.

Town made their first substitution at half-time, introducing Danny Ward for Tino Anjorin.

The Terriers start the second half the same way they started the first half, a free kick at the side of the box taken by Yuta Nakayama found Rhodes’ head on the left post but the shot on target didn’t make it past the Bluebird’s ‘keeper.

A brilliant through ball is sent to Jack Rudoni and he went clean through on goal on the left side, but he hesitated to shoot, and was cleanly tackled in the area.

The 61st minute saw another brilliant close reaction save from Nicholls’ to deny Cardiff City their equaliser.

On his first Sky Bet Championship start, Etienne Camara put in a brilliant challenge on the edge of his own box and his efforts sent substitute Pat Jones sprinting down the field, but Cardiff work well to defend and the goal couldn’t be found.

The Terriers continued to hold on to their one goal lead as Cardiff City pushed even harder to find their equaliser.

Rhodes fancied his chance as he struck the ball from just inside Town’s attacking half, which looked to be hitting the target, but Ryab Allsop gets back to his goal in time to concede a corner.

Chance for Cardiff City in the 87th minute is well defended by Ollie Turton as he headed the ball clear before the Bluebirds striker can get onto it, this was shortly followed by two brilliant defensive headers from Michał Helik from both of the Cardiff corners.

Last action of the came from Town as Pat Jones sent a lovely cross onto the feet of substitute Sorba Thomas, who sent the ball just wide from inside the box.

A brilliant goal in the first half from Rhodes secured the second Sky Bet Championship win for Town this afternoon.
