Town lost 2-1 at Oakwell in their last league match and are preparing for back-to-back clashes against Yorkshire rivals with Doncaster due at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.

"There's a fair few Yorkshire derbies, which is great for the supporters and great for us to play in," Clarke said.

"The fact that there's so many clubs from Yorkshire in the Championship, it's good for the fans that they're not having to make so many long journeys here, there and everywhere every other week.

"In those derby games you want to come out on top, you want to give the bragging rights to your supporters as well.

"I love the cut and thrust of the derby games and that usually comes to pass when the Yorkshire teams come up against each other."

Huddersfield are one of five Yorkshire clubs in the Championship this season along with Barnsley, Doncaster, Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds.

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
