Phillip Cocu will be looking for all three points in his first competitive game in charge for the Rams when they travel to John Smith's Stadium to take on Jan Siewert’s side. Here, has gathered all the information you will need ahead of the clash.


Speaking ahead of the game, Cocu told RamsTV: “It’s a difficult start, of course. They were relegated last season but there is potential in the team and they have really good players.

“They manage the ball very well but it will be good to see how we do against Huddersfield. They are a quality team and they are the favourites for promotion.

“To play an away game, we can see how the team is doing in these circumstances. How we can manage the ball, how we can still play our own game and it’s something we look forward to.”
