Tommy Smith: Huddersfield Town 'happy' with underdogs tag


Tommy Smith made 47 appearances for Huddersfield last season

Premier League newcomers Huddersfield Town are “more than happy with being written off”, according to captain Tommy Smith.

Town, who beat Reading in the Championship play-off final in May, have been tipped by many to make an immediate return to the second tier.

The Terriers start the season with a trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

“People didn’t expect anything from us last season and look what we achieved,” the defender told BBC Radio Leeds.
