All eyes will be on John Smith’s Stadium when Huddersfield Town and Derby County face each other in the opening match of the season. The Terriers are determined to secure a quick return to the Premier League and seeing that Frank Lampard is no longer in charge of Derby County, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Huddersfield Town were producing splendid performances in pre-season, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.

The Rams, on the other hand, head into Monday’s football game following back-to-back losses to the likes of Girona and Rangers in warm-up games and we are positive that they are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to West Yorkshire. It has to be noted that several Derby County first-team regulars left the club in the summer transfer window.


Despite being born in Fribourg, Switzerland Terence Kongolo plays for the Dutch national team. The 188-cm-tall centre back, who plays as a left back as well, began his club career at Feyenoord and he has been playing for de Trots van Zuid ever since.

Kongolo has established himself as one of the team’s key players and it is no surprise Louis Van Gaal included him in the Netherlands 2014 FIFA World Cup squad. The defender came as a substitute in the final group game against Chile. The Oranje won the bronze medal at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, beating hosts Brazil in the third-place play offs.

It has to be noted that he was part of the Netherlands U17 Team that clinched the trophy at the 2011 European Championship finals. Kongolo made 29 appearances for Feyenoord in the 2015/2016 Eredivisie campaign, while playing six games in the Dutch Cup. His contract with Feyenoord expires on 30 June, 2018.


Derby County is one of the 12 founder members of the Football League. However, nowadays the Rams compete in the Championship and they play their home matches at Pride Park Stadium. Derby County have won the two trophies in the English top flight (1971/1972, 1974/1975), with the team lifting the FA Cup trophy just after the World War II (1946).

Derby’s main rivals are Nottingham Forest, Leicester City and Leeds United, but the rivalry between Forest and Derby is regarded as the biggest one.

The two teams take on each other in the East Midlands derby. The colour of Derby’s shirts is white, whilst their shorts are black. It has to be noted that the club was founded in 1884 by William Morley. The Rams competed in the European competitions four times, but they did not record a notable result in the European Cups. The club’s chairman is Mel Morris.
