Simon Grayson Insists Huddersfield Will Not Repeat Their Play-off Final Gaffe

SIMON Grayson insists Huddersfield will not make the same play-off final mistakes as last year.

The Terriers were big favourites to beat Peterborough at Old Trafford 12 months ago and secure a spot in the Championship.

But Darren Ferguson's side outwitted them and won promotion instead through a 3-0 victory.

Grayson reckons the shock defeat might have been down to Huddersfield's overconfidence going into the game.

And he is convinced they will not fall foul of the problem when they take on Sheffield United at Wembley.

He said: ``Maybe some of the players were younger and went in thinking, ‘We will win it and just have to turn up’.

``Or maybe some thought, and no disrespect is intended, ‘they are only Peterborough’.

``This time it is Sheffield United, one of the biggest teams in the country. We will go in as underdogs, whereas last year maybe they felt they were favourites.”
