Winger could reach landmark this Saturday

Danny Ward is confident that Town can claim all three points in Saturday’s visit of Reading as he looks to make his 100th appearance for the Club.

The attacker celebrated his 23rd birthday this week and bagged his third goal of the season at Ipswich last Saturday.

He’s featured in the last three games for Town, with three wins preceding last week’s narrow defeat at Portman Road.

“We started well, had plenty of chances and it was disappointing not to come away with at least a draw,” he said.

“When we went to Bolton, to come away with a 1-0 win was fantastic with the performance we put in and it shows the quality we have in the side. We are confident going into Saturday's game.”

In his third season with the Terriers, Danny has been a regular in the side of late as Town look to continue to climb the table.

“It’s just about keeping myself in the team and keeping fit from injuries; that’s the main thing really.

“It’s make or break for teams at this time of the year. If we can put some performances together we can start looking towards those Play-Off places towards the end of the season.”

After the visit of Reading tomorrow, the Terriers head to Brighton next Saturday before back-to-back home games against Derby on Boxing Day and Yeovil on 29 December.

“Having two games at home over Christmas is good. The games come thick and fast and to have minimal travel puts it in our favour. We can be as fresh as possible.”

The Terriers start 2014 with a trip to Burnley on New Year’s Day before an FA Cup Third Round tie at Grimsby Town on 4 January.

“Everyone enjoys playing in the FA Cup and it’s a good chance for us to kick on and go as far as possible. We can’t go there being complacent because they will be up for it.

“It’s a massive competition and everyone wants to go as far as they can. We have the quality to do well.”
