All-time record v the Gills:

Matches: 16
Gills wins: 6
Draws: 4
Huddersfield wins: 6Remember me? It's more a case of them remembering Ronnie Jepson. The Gills manager was a popular figure in his playing spell with the Terriers, where he formed a lethal partnership with Terriers legend Andy Booth which is still fondly remembered by Town fans.Man to watch: Luke Beckett. Enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Terriers in 2005 - scoring six times in seven appearances - and after spending the whole of last season at Oldham, where he scored 18 goals (including two against the Gills), he has now moved to the Galpharm Stadium on a full-time basis. His goals could be vital for Town this season.2006/07 prospects: Even though their pre-season results have been far from inspiring, Town - beaten in the play-offs last season - should challenge yet again. The goals of Beckett, coupled with Andy Booth and Pawel Abbott mean they should be a free-scoring team and will definitely be in the shake up come May.
