Karlan Grant’s Huddersfield Town side will face Fulham in the Quarter-Finals of the Football Manager Cup.
The striker has been impressing as Huddersfield Town’s virtual boss so far, guiding the Terriers on a rather successful cup run to date.
The campaign began with a difficult 1-0 win over Oldham Athletic – a game Karlan learnt a lot from. Another 1-0 win, this time over Walsall, followed in the Second Round after a last-minute header by Emile Smith Rowe.
However, Karlan really showed off this managerial prowess in the last 16 of the competition, where his Town side beat Bristol City. Inspired substitutions and tactical decision ultimately won the game for his side.

Now Karlan faces a new challenge; that of Sky Bet Championship side Fulham. The Cottagers, managed by actor Charlie Cooper, have beat Doncaster Rovers, Charlton Athletic and Wycombe Wanderers in the competition so far.
The match will take place on Tuesday 12 May 2020 and will kick-off at 8pm. Follow @htafc on Twitter for updates!
