In form Terriers tough to break down

Huddersfield Town head to Ewood Park this weekend and Tony Mowbray is expecting another good battle

18 October 2019

A new manager has seen an upturn in fortunes for recently relegated Huddersfield Town under Danny Cowley.

Installed as new boss last month, Cowley arrived from Lincoln City charged with arresting The Terriers' slump following a disappointing Premier League campaign last term.

Recent results suggest the tide is turning for the Yorkshiremen, who come into Saturday's lunchtime encounter on a run of three games unbeaten, which includes two victories from their last two games.

And speaking ahead of the clash, Rovers manager Tony Mowbray admits that they are a different animal under Cowley's stewardship.

“They’ve changed their manager and having watched their games, I see a pretty organised team," the boss told iFollow Rovers.

"They’re hard to beat, hard to break down and a threat on the break.

“They’ve got individual players who can run and break away and score goals. They’ve got players who played in the Premier League last season, so they’re a dangerous team.

“A new coach has given them so new ideas and has sparked something in them. They’ve won the last two games, so they’ll come in a pretty confident mood.

“So we have to concentrate, be focused, understand how tough the game is, but hopefully get the three points at the end of it.“The team understand what the requirements are this year and the extra ambition that this club should have now.

“We’ve consolidated back in the division, we now have to push on and try to threaten the top end of the league.

“Ultimately, I hope that’s what we shall do. There’s a lot of games still to play," he added.

"Here we are 11 games in, we feel pretty hard done by with the number of points that we’ve got because of the performance level of the team, but we know that if we keep doing the right things we’ll have days where we probably don’t play very well but still win, but consistently have days where we are the better team and we do win."
