Huddersfield manager Carlos Corberán admits that January signing is still weeks away from featuring for the team.
Anjorin has only made three appearances since signing for The Terriers. “Right now, we can’t talk about starting Tino Anjorin because he was out for a long time, after the international break we might see that change.”
Huddersfield drew 2-2 with West Bromwich Albion at the weekend after they conceded two late goals, in relation to this, Corberán spoke about his teams’ response after the game.
“We reacted in a complicated scenario and I’ve seen in my career many times that a team can lose games like that.”
Star man Danny Ward had yet another outstanding game and he has been a shining light in Corberáns’ overperforming Terriers.
However, as the goals were conceded in such quick succession, Town lost focus in the last five minutes of the match which was the main downfall in what would’ve been an important win. When the first goal was conceded Huddersfield’s players and fans had their mentality shifted.
“Immediately after the goal they had an opportunity where they crossed the ball and Carroll won the header. I don’t think you have time enough to say it affected us emotionally. The second goal did and we needed time to adapt.”
Town are 3rd in The Championship and are in the fight for automatic promotion. Momentum is key in football and with Huddersfield being on a 17-game unbeaten streak in the league, their momentum is high.
“The atmosphere is still positive after Friday, it’s part of football, we need to try to learn from the situation and keep going, sometimes goals affect games more than any coach can do.”
Huddersfield are facing Millwall at The Den tomorrow and will be looking to do the double over them after leaving The John Smiths stadium as 1-0 victors back in October.
“Millwall are having a good season, they’re a big physical challenge.”
The Championship is renown to be a tough, physical league and the competition for promotion to England’s top tier is fierce. Each team has to be at their very best to get one over their opposition.
“We are playing teams that are going to demand from us the best in defence and attack. Championship sides demand this of you, the results and table say it week by week.”
There are no new injuries within the Huddersfield squad which means they will be able to travel with the same group of players as the West Bromwich Albion match last weekend.
The Terriers have been in fine form this season and have drastically improved their fortunes from last season. The team is working well together. Coberan spoke about the importance of details and each situation in a match and how they can change the outcome
“We never know what’s going to be the most important action, so we need to give importance to each action.”
Although Huddersfield have been one of the best performing teams in the championship this season, there is always room for improvement in Coberan’s eyes.
“We always need to look at what we need to improve because over 96 minutes winning every action is impossible. There’s always things to improve.”
