History of the Huddersfield Town v Blackpool fixture

Huddersfield prepare to entertain Blackpool at Galpharm Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Terriers are clearly on top, having won 21 and lost only 9 of the 37 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Galpharm Stadium was less than a year ago, in February 2005, the Terriers carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League One match.
