Match Preview


Short has options

Manager Craig Short faces plenty of selection posers as Notts County prepare to begin life in League One at home to Huddersfield.

The former Magpies defender, who replaced Steve Cotterill at the Meadow Lane helm at the start of June, must choose between Rob Burch and Stuart Nelson in goal following the summer departure of Kasper Schmeichel.

County`s third keeper, David Grof, who signed a one-year deal last week, has joined Tamworth on a month`s loan.

Short also has options at centre-back with new signings Krystian Pearce and Liam Chilvers providing competition for Mike Edwards and Graeme Lee.

Ben Burgess and last season`s top scorer Lee Hughes are likely to start in attack, although there is strong competition from Karl Hawley and the recently-signed Kevin Smith.

Damien Johnson is expected to go straight into the Huddersfield squad.

Johnson signed on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent move on Thursday.

The former Northern Ireland international joins a plethora of new midfield recruits at the Galpharm Stadium. Joey Gudjonsson, Scott Arfield, Graham Carey and Lee Croft could all make their debuts.

Nathan and Tom Clarke will miss out with knee injuries and striker Lee Novak is still short of match fitness after his pre-season was disrupted with a similar problem.

The absence of the Clarke brothers from the back-line will be offset by the prospect of debuts for Gary Naysmith and Jamie McCombe while on-loan Nottingham Forest forward Joe Garner is likely to fill the void left by Novak.

Full-back Lee Peltier was an absentee for last weekend's friendly with Scunthorpe due to muscle tightness but is expected to play.

Match Report

Pilkington at double for Terriers Anthony Pilkington struck twice as Huddersfield cruised to a 3-0 win at Notts County on the opening day of the npower League One season. County manager Craig Short, who was appointed as Steve Cotterill's successor in June, saw his side's defence exposed on numerous occasions during his first competitive match in charge. Huddersfield should have opened the scoring after 25 minutes when a quick counter attack put Joe Garner clean through, but the Nottingham Forest loanee shot wide. However, the Terriers made amends seven minutes later when Pilkington rifled a shot into the top corner from an acute angle. Jordan Rhodes, who netted 19 league goals last term, doubled Town's advantage soon after when he latched onto Garner's pass and calmly slotted the ball home. County, who lost just one league game at Meadow Lane on their way to the title last term, saw Liam Chilvers' goal-bound volley blocked by Garner. But after Garner had hit the bar, Huddersfield put the result beyond doubt 17 minutes from time through Pilkington's sweetly struck shot from the edge of the area.
