Friday 26th January.

The players had been promised a working break during the fixture lull, and you can almost picture them queuing at Boots debating whether to buy factor 4 or factor 8 sun tan lotion. Sorry lads, this is Huddersfield Town, forget Marbella youíre off to Blackpool! The players must have been tangibly underwhelmed at the prospect of a trip to a health farm on the chilly coast of Lancashire. Never mind lads, youíve got a friendly game in sunny Lincolnshire against Boston United of the Conference to look forward to tonight.

Mixed news today on the striking front, with Clyde Wijnhard receiving the news that he needs another bone graft on his badly broken arm and this will almost certainly rule him out for the rest of the season. The good news is that the Peter Ndlovu deal with Sheffield United looks to be breaking down, as the Zimbabwean wants to play for Town and nobody else. Actually I made the last bit up, but apparently he looks set to reject the deal and keep his options open for when he is a free agent in the summer. I still prefer the first version. Since the Ndlovu/Jenkins swap arrangement in December, Birmingham have made a £300,000 offer for Steve Jenkins which has been rejected so far. Officially itís because Macari doesnít think the fee is enough, but I suspect he wants to keep Jenks as a pawn in case of Ndlovuís possible availability in the near future.
