Sta 16th October
After two good wins at home Saints have a much tougher game up at the Galpharm. Huddersfield came out of a poor run by beating Colchester 3-0 and that will have given them a big boost. This game will tell us more about how we are improving.
Both Morgan Schneiderlin and Ryan Doble return from international duty for this weekend after being away with France and Wales respectively.
Frazer Richardson played for 86 minutes in his first run-out since getting injured pre-season. This game will probably come to soon for the right back but he will be adding strength to the squad as his fitness keeps improving.
David Connolly, Oscar Gobern and Paul Wotton are all edging closer to making a return to full fitness though a game or two will be needed by them to hone their match fitness.
Adam has been a revelation since returning from injury although not yet fully fit. He could well be our star player against the Terriers.
Lee Croft is out after getting a red card against Colchester last weekend. Anthony Pilkington is hoping that the groin strain won't stop him playing.
Nathan Clarke has recovered from his knee injury and may return.
Scott Arfield is back from international duty and should play.
Alex Smithies the keeper is doubtful and should be replaced by Ian Bennett.
Tom Clark, Gary Naysmith and Gary Roberts are out injured.
The midfielder could be a big thorn in the face of our midfield and will be one to watch.
Last season the two games we had could not have been more different. At the Galpharm we were totally outplayed and were a shade lucky to only lose 3-1.
Back at St Mary's we turned the tables on the Terriers completely outplaying them and scoring five in
our 5-0 win.
Overall there has been 11 meetings in Huddersfield and the score is 7 wins to 4 in favour of the home side.
Mr Colin Webster officiates Mr A Scregg & Mr M Sutton assist Mr J Tyas is 4th official.
Tough though this could be I am going for a Saints win by 2-1.
