Vital Birmingham Content Editor Rob Wildey caught up with Jack Armitage, a Terriers fan, ahead of their visit to St. Andrews tomorrow.

What is your opinion of David Wagner?

Wagner has done a brilliant job. Getting Huddersfield anywhere near the play-offs, let alone third place, is an overachievement of epic proportions. Regardless of the outcome of the play-offs, he should be made a priority when bigger clubs come sniffing around.

What were Huddersfield`s expectations before the season started?

For the last two seasons, we have finished 18th and 11th, so progress would have been top ten. An outside chance of the play-offs was mooted by some, but never in our wildest dreams did we think Huddersfield Town would be the nearest challengers to the automatic promotion spaces. It really has been a pleasurable ride.

With Huddersfield`s play-off place confirmed, what sort of team will Wagner put out?

He has mentioned resting some players to keep them fresh but whether he will do that for the last two games, I don`t know. It would be nice to get the second leg at home, meaning we have to finish 3rd or 4th, so in that respect, a win would do it. I can see Wagner making three or four changes, nothing wholesale though.

What is your prediction for the game?

I think the pressure will be on Birmingham in front of a big crowd. Our recent form hasn`t been great – we`ve only won three of our last eight – so I expect a tough game. I can see it being goalless. 0-0.
