Huddersfield Town made it through to the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup, defeating Barnsley after overcoming Burnley in the previous round at Turf Moor. But how far can the Terriers actually go in the competition after their good form in the league and who will be the main players Carlos Corberan will rely on?
The Terriers are now 12 games unbeaten in all competitions, that form transferring into the cup competition this weekend. Corberan's men have done very well in the Sky Bet Championship, currently sitting in fifth place, firmly in the play-offs with three points the difference between themselves and Middlesbrough in seventh position.
Huddersfield currently look like a very dangerous outfit that could be capable of making it through the play-offs. The last time they were there they made it to the Premier League in 2017.
Sorba Thomas and Josh Koroma so far have had very good seasons, dangerous on the flanks and always looking to make something happen at every opportunity. With reinforcements arriving in the January transfer window in the name of Jamal Blackman and Tino Anjorin, the future looks very bright for the Town faithful.
What has changed for the Terriers?
Defensively, loanee Levi Colwill from Chelsea has been very good, with Carel Eiting, Danel Sinani and Lewis O'Brien all dangerous in the centre of the park, Sinani has been particularly useful from set pieces. The West Yorkshire side can look upwards and onwards in a bid for promotion which is looking like a serious possibility after their recent relegation battles over the last couple of seasons.
Last season, Huddersfield lost to Plymouth Argyle 3-2 in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup at the John Smiths Stadium and weren't able to progress further as a result. The season before this the Terriers lost to Southampton at St Mary's Stadium.
In this particular game against Barnsley, the Terriers had more shots on target, registering three shots on target to Barnsley's 0. Town dominated possession which shows confidence from back to front with a possession count of 62% overall. Duane Holmes was the goalscorer and has been renowned for his wonder goals proving yet again he can also score from close range aswell as from many yards out.
All in all it was a deserved win for the Terriers against struggling Barnsley. Huddersfield will now be looking to continue their good league form when they travel to Deepdale on Wednesday.
