Izzy Brown discusses facing old club Huddersfield
Brighton & Hove Albion forward Izzy Brown admits he has fond memories of Huddersfield Town as he prepares to visit the John Smith's Stadium.
The 20-year-old is currently on-loan at the Seagulls from Premier League champions Chelsea, featuring in ten Premier League clashes for Chris Hughton's side this season.
Brown was a part of the Huddersfield side who historically secured promotion to the top flight from the Championship last season, establishing himself as a first-team regular.
With Premier League rules only allowing a club to have one player on-loan from a fellow divisional side, David Wagner brought back Kasey Palmer for the season, allowing Brown to make the move down south to join Brighton.
Speaking to brightonandhovealbion.com about coming back to West Yorkshire on Saturday, he said "that’s a big one for me from a personal perspective, and the team as well.
"The fans still think fondly of me, but my focus is here now – I had a good half of a season there and the promotion at Wembley was a great day for me and my family.
"We know it’s big because of our tough matches over recent weeks, but we’ll be going there looking to win and get the three points.
"We’ve been in the top half for a while now which surpassed expectations and now we want to get back there as soon as we can."
The Terriers go into the clash on the back of four consecutive defeats which has seen them drop to 15th in the Premier League standings, five points above the relegation zone.
Brighton are also four games without victory and sit two points above Town in 12th place.
