Mark Lillis to take charge on Saturday

20 August 2014

Huddersfield Town have confirmed that Mark Lillis will be in charge of the team for Saturday's home game against Charlton Athletic.

Lillis was named caretaker boss following Mark Robins' sacking on the opening weekend of the season, and guided Town to their first win of the Sky Bet Championship campaign at Reading on Tuesday night.

Ironically, former Charlton boss Chris Powell is among the favourites to take the permanent job, but he will not be facing his old club this weekend.

Lillis told the club's official website: "I had a call from the chairman on the way back from Reading and he asked me to take the team again on Saturday.

"It will be special as it's a home game. Seeing all the supporters walking to the ground on my way in will get the adrenaline going and coming down the tunnel will be great.

"We're playing a good team in Charlton coming off three wins on the bounce, but we'll focus on our own game.

"We'll get the players putting a shift in, going into tackles and playing good football and I know our fans will get behind that. We're looking to get the fans off their seats and I'm sure they will support us."
