Terriers appoint former leeds managerby Steve Claridge / 20 February 2012, 21:12Tweet
Huddersfield Town have appointed former Leeds United coach Simon Grayson as their new manager. Grayson takes over the Terriers from Lee Clark who was controversially sacked by chairman Dean Hoyle after losing only 3 games this season.
Clark oversaw a club record 43 game unbeaten streak and 2 visits to the play-offs, however defeats by Millwall and Peterborough confined Huddersfield to League One.
Grayson, himself controversially sacked by Leeds chairman Ken Bates earlier this month, steered Leeds to promotion from League One and into the Championship during his reign, and led them to an impressive 7th in their first season back in the Championship last year.
Huddersfield are 7 points adrift of second placed Sheffield United and will hope to bridge that gap to gain automatic promotion and not to endure any further play-off misery.
