Former Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell is confident he could lead Huddersfield to success if he was handed the vacant manager's job at his former club. "I've been out of the game just over a year and it's time to get back and Huddersfield is a club that has a progressive chairman," said Blackwell, who worked as coach under Neil Warnock at Huddersfield during 1995/6 season.

"Myself and Neil were there and had great success and it's a club that attracts me. They're very bright and forward moving. The chairman has pumped a lot of money into the club. They are a progressive club, it's a good club so we'll see what happens."

Blackwell added on Sky Sports: "As a professional you want to have a strong CV and yes I have a particularly strong CV and I want to make sure it stays that way.

"That's why I haven't applied for certain jobs because they didn't suit where I wanted to go and I want to make sure my CV remains strong and is attractive to clubs."
