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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
