After failing to hold onto a lead at home to Middlesbrough in their opening game of the season, Fulham boss Marco Silva would have spent the week ahead of the trip to Huddersfield Town feeling a certain level of frustration.

Although that perception will be put to the test against the division’s best frontline, Rowett will be optimistic that their undefeated streak in all competitions can be extended to four matches
