Peter Clarke: Huddersfield Town captain is ready for games at Charlton and Middl

The Terriers have won four out of eight games on the road this term, but face tough clashes against in-form duo Charlton and Middlesbrough in the space of three days.

However, former Southend defender Clarke says that everyone's focus is on Saturday's trip to The Valley as they refrain from looking too far ahead.

"Our sole focus is always the next game and that ensures that we don't look beyond that at what might be round the corner," Clarke told Sky Sports.

"If you start looking too far ahead or setting targets after a certain amount of games you can lose sight of what is important.

"The most important thing is always the next game because you can only affect one game at a time.

"That is the way we have worked in the past and it has served us quite well so far, so we won't be changing our ways any time soon.

"We have done well away from home over the course of the season to date and were unfortunate not to come back from Cardiff on the opening day with any points because the performance definitely warranted a point at least.

"However, since then we've done well on our travels, with some good victories recently and long may it continue."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
