Huddersfield Town’s three fantastic defenders Tom Lees, Levi Colwill and Matty Pearson have been the key to the team’s solid form in October.
The Terriers sit 5th in the Sky Bet Championship table and have picked up eight points from a possible 15.
Pearson, Lees and Colwill have all been inspired signings for the Terriers and deserve huge credit for where the Terriers find themselves.
Town have only conceded three goals this month and they all came in the 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth on the south coast.
In fact the Terriers have had six clean sheets so far this campaign, that’s only three less than they managed in the whole of last season!
The two wins Town collected this month were the 2-0 victory over Hull City and the 1-0 win over Millwall.
The win over the Tigers was convincing, the performance was not the most dazzling but it was very professional. Lees grabbed the first goal in the 9th minute and Daune Holmes wrapped up the game with a stunning long range effort in the 73rd minute.
Town’s win over Millwall was a determined display and the Terriers took the game by the scruff of the neck and really wanted the three points. Jonathan Hogg scored an 82nd minute header from a Sorba Thomas corner to make sure the three points were staying in West Yorkshire.
Thomas now has eight assists in what has been a wonderful campaign so far for the former Boreham Wood man.
It is the first time in Hogg’s eight-year stay at Town that he has scored more than one goal in a season. His other goal came away at Blackpool earlier this season.
Other results this month included a 3-0 loss to Bournemouth and 0-0 draws away at Luton and at home to Birmingham.
Off the pitch we saw a fundraising walk by club officials and supporters in memory of Frank Worthington.
Meanwhile club CEO Mark Devlin updated supporters on the club’s plans to improve its match day experience and food options.
I believe we have done very well so far this season and it is somewhat of a shock to see us as high in the table as we are.
It is extremely good though to see we now can have confidence in our defence when we go into a fixture. Pearson, Lees and Colwill have come in and been exemplary bar the odd slip up such as at Bournemouth.
Town are becoming more consistent under Carlos and you can see that in the way in which we play.
I have heard some fans say this is a poor Championship season in terms of opposition quality. However we can only beat what is in front of us and so far Carlos should be commended for the job he is doing.
If we can continue our good form into next month I would hope we can pick up at least seven to nine points.
