‘Going to be some player for Chelsea’ – Plenty of Huddersfield Town fans react to player’s display v Blackburn Rovers



Huddersfield Town secured an impressive 0-0 draw on the road as they held high-flyers Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park, being one of few teams to deny Tony Mowbray’s men from getting on the scoresheet this term.

In fact, the Lancashire outfit had only failed to score in three of their opening 24 league games of the 2021/22 campaign, last firing a blank against automatic promotion contenders back at the start of November as they were blown away by Marco Silva’s side that night.

They had scored and gone unbeaten in all eight of their second-tier matches since then – and despite keeping a clean sheet – they were unable to keep up their winning run after taking maximum points from their six.

Quiz: Can you name which club Huddersfield Town signed these 20 strikers from?

This run has taken them into the automatic promotion spots, partly due to the Cottagers’ postponed games over the festive period but that shouldn’t take away from their performances, scoring goals for fun after hitting four against both Peterborough United and Birmingham City in recent months.

But this clean sheet was typical of Huddersfield’s defence this term, with Tom Lees and Matty Pearson proving to be two of the better free signings in the EFL back in the summer, helping to concede just 29 goals in 26 games.

Considering they conceded five alone in their clash against Fulham back in August, this is an impressive record and another summer addition in Chelsea loan man Levi Colwill has also played his part in that.

But did his performance match an impressive clean sheet at Ewood Park as he came face to face with the formidable Ben Brereton Diaz?
