Huddersfield Town are back in Sky Bet Championship action when they travel to the Hawthorns to take on West Brom on Friday 11 March 2022, 8pm kick-off.
Town will arrive at the Hawthorns having beaten Peterborough United three nil at home in their last league outing, while West Brom won their first game under new boss Steve Bruce against Hull City away from home.
West Brom currently occupy 13 position having taken 49 points from 35 games.
The Baggies have recently appointed Steve Bruce as manager, following the dismissal of Valérien Ismaël in February 2022.
Town will be hoping to do the double over West Brom on Friday, following a 1-0 victory at the John Smith’s Stadium in November 2021.
ONES TO WATCH
After coming through the academy at Hull City in 2011, Townsend went on to play for multiple clubs, including Grimsby Town, Dundee United and Scunthorpe. The 28-year-old signed for West Brom in 2018, helping them gain promotion to the Premier League in his second season. Townsend has become a constant in the West Brom team, missing only one game this season and playing in multiple different positions including left back and centre midfield. His runs from full back are often a threat to teams, with Townsend helping himself to two assists this season from that position. Townsend has it all as a full back, with his strong defensive attributes and attacking qualities making him a player Town will have to be wary of.
Following a season on loan for the Baggies in 2019-20, Diangana was signed permanently in the summer of 2020 whilst West Brom were in the Premier League. During his loan spell under Slaven Bilic, Diangana helped himself to eight goals in 30 appearances before returning to his parent club. The former West Ham wide player has featured in all but four of West Brom’s Championship games this season, contributing with three goal contributions from both the left and right wing. Despite West Brom’s struggles in front of goal in recent weeks, Diangana is always looking to get on the ball and make things happen for his side, making him a threat Town will have to look out for.
Much like Grady Diangana, Callum Robbinson was signed following a successful loan spell with the club during their promotion season in 2019/20. The former Preston and Sheffield United attacker has helped himself to 14 goal contributions this season, second only to Karlan Grant for the Baggies. His ability to carry the ball and get in behind the defence is one of Robinson’s biggest strengths, making him a constant threat throughout the 90 minutes. Robinson’s performances over the last few seasons have earnt him a permanent place in the Republic of Ireland squad. Robinson has played 24 times for his country, scoring seven times including a hattrick vs Qatar.
Head Coach Carlos Corberán will provide an update on the fitness of his squad during the virtual press conference on Thursday 10 March 2022.
Town will be in their beach glass third kit for the trip to the Midlands.
