Huddersfield Town take a break from the Sky Bet Championship this evening, as they travel to Manchester City for an FA Cup fifth-round replay.
Following a goalless draw at the John Smith’s Stadium, David Wagner’s Huddersfield now travel to the Etihad Stadium to take on Pep Guardiola’s star-studded City side, looking for an FA Cup upset.
The winners of tonight’s tie will face a trip to Middlesbrough in the next round.
The Terriers will be hindered by a recent touchline ban their charismatic manager received, following his part in the brawl against Leeds United last month.
Wagner’s side will also be without on-loan midfielder Aaron Mooy, as the Australian is ineligible to face his parent-club.
Tonight’s clash is a bonus for Huddersfield, who are enjoying a magnificent season, as they bid for a return to the top-flight for the first time since 1972.
Wagner’s side are currently third in the Championship table, just six-points behind the automatic promotion places, and almost a certainty to be competing in the Play-Offs- if their bid for the top-two falls short.
Huddersfield face league leaders Newcastle United on Saturday in the Championship, as they look to challenge for the automatic promotion places.
Ahead of tonight’s FA Cup clash, here is how Huddersfield Town fans are reacting on Twitter…
Might as well be playing Stevenage away tonight. Be nice for an upset but not overly fussed ????⚪ #htafc
