PREVIEW: Huddersfield Town v Exeter City

Exeter City will look to take heart from their recent performances and results as they make a first trip to the Galpharm Stadium to face Huddersfield Town. City have seen a recent upturn in home form, with seven points collected from the past three games at St. James Park. Away from home, City`s only victory so far was a fortunate one at Carlisle in August, but they can be buoyed by good performances at heavyweights Leeds United and Charlton Athletic.

Huddersfield are certainly play-off contenders, and started the season in fine style, including a 7-1 battering of Brighton. However, after that promising start Town have now gone five league games since their last victory at MK Dons over a month ago.
