Opposing View: Huddersfield
First of all, now that the season's almost up, how do you feel your season has been so far?

It's been a replicate of last season in all honesty, started off well in the top half but as soon as New Year hit our form has slumped and we were almost in a relegation battle. We signed Nahki Wells in January to try kick on our season, but injuries to others has left Robins picking squad players instead of first team players and our form has divebombed.

You took Jonathan Hogg from us last summer, a move that lots of Watford fans believe has played a big part in our comparative mediocrity this season, how's he been for you so far?

It's one that divides a lot of our support. I thought he started off well, like the rest of the team in the holding midfield role, but then Adam Clayton seems to have volunteered himself for that role and Hogg has turned into some what of a missing player. I believe if Clayton moved forward then we'd see him back to his best, but he definitely hasn't been one of our better performers.

James Vaughan is always a pain to play against in my experience, but thankfully he's out tomorrow so he won't be able to score against us. Is there any one player in particular you'd single out as being a threat or in good form right now?

Nakhi Wells. The Bermudan is going to make us millions and is destined for the top. Had a patch of six games without a goal and looked off pace but since we gave Barnsley a five goal beating where he had 4 assists he's been our best player by far. So good in the air for a small man, deceptively fast and a real keen eye for goal. If Vaughan sorts his legs out, put a fiver on Wells to be top scorer next season.

In what style do Huddersfield tend to play right now? What formation, what kind of game does Mark Robins set the team up to play?

Well we started out at 3-5-2, which was pleasing on the eye and affective. But recently it's been a mismatch of that, 4-5-1 and 4-3-3. I'm hoping he sets us out to just go for it tomorrow, recently we've gone ahead and then defended for another 70mins and it has cost us points. Hope that changes tomorrow.

Should we expect anything unusual tomorrow given that it's the final game of the season? Will a couple of youngsters get a shout?

Wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of our sucessful U21s and U18s get a game tomorrow, both whom have won there leagues respectively. Expect Duane Holmes to feature and possible bench appearances for Joe Lolley and Phillip Billing.

What's your match prediction for tomorrow?

Lose 3-1, ever the optimist...

Thanks very much Danny!
