Bolton travel to Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon and we have got the views of a Terriers supporter ahead of the game.

Saturday's game will be the first time the two sides have met since February 2001, when second half goals from Per Frandsen and Gudni Bergsson saw Wanderers come from two goals down to claim a 2-2 draw at the Reebok Stadium.

Ahead of their latest meeting - the 95th in all competitions - we have been to Town website Down At The Mac to get the views of lewishtfc on Jordan Rhodes' departure, Bolton's promotion chances and former Wanderers player Danny Ward.

Q: Huddersfield currently occupy 15th place in the Championship. How has your season been so far?

A: Fantastic. There has been a much better quality of football and we're not expecting to win every game, which makes the season far more enjoyable.

On our day, we are a very good team and I would be very happy with a mid-table finish.

Q: Jordan Rhodes left Huddersfield to join Blackburn Rovers in the summer. How much of an impact has his absence had on the team?

A: Scoring goals consistently was obviously a huge factor in our success in League One.

However, we were named a one-man team with him and, now he has gone, we play more like a team and more players in different positions chip in with goals, which they didn't do as much last season.

Q: Former Bolton winger Danny Ward is currently at Huddersfield. What do you think of him?

A: He's been a bit hit and miss. When he was on loan, he was fantastic and a player we were all desperate to sign. However, since becoming permanent, he has been very inconsistent in his performances.

When he is on his game, he is a real threat and has a cannon of a left boot, but, when he is off form, he goes missing very quickly from games.

Q: After just one defeat in seven matches under new boss Dougie Freedman, do you think promotion could be a possibility for the Wanderers?

A: Of course - if they play up to the level that Crystal Palace and Cardiff City are doing at the moment.

Q: Adam Clayton and Lee Novak are currently the Terriers top scorers with 4 goals each. Who else should the Wanderers be wary of on Saturday afternoon?

A: Jermaine Beckford and James Vaughan, if they are both match fit.

Oliver Norwood, if he is on his game, and the wingers Sean Scannell and Adam Hammill, if they are both on form, can be very tricky to mark.

Q: Which Bolton players do you think Simon Grayson will be earmarking as a potential threat to the Huddersfield goal?

A: Chris Eagles and the Davies Duo - Kevin and Mark.

Q: Finally, what do you think the final score will be at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday?

A: 2-1 to Huddersfield - Vaughan and Ward the goalscorers.
