Huddersfield Town Head Coach says that Derby County are having a fantastic season ahead of their trip to the John Smith’s Stadium on Wednesday 2 February 2022.
When speaking to the press in his virtual press conference, Carlos first touched on Town’s January transfer window, which saw the Club bring in three new Terriers on Deadline Day.
“Jamal Blackman has a lot of experience in both English Football and the Championship as he played at teams like Sheffield United and Leeds United.
“He played a lot with the Under-23s at Leeds, but unfortunately, he had an injury when I was coaching one of the Under-23s games!
“He’s also played in America, and now he’s with us.
“We feel that he can cover the position with a lot of guarantees because he has experience as a very good goalkeeper.
“Tino Anjorin is one very talented player.
“He can play as a winger, he can play as a no.10, which for me I would consider as his main position. He can also play as a no.7, so he gives you the three options in front of attack.
“He’s a player with a lot of talent that can have a high contribution to the squad.
“When we lost Alex Vallejo to injury, we needed someone else who can help the team with the ball from the back.
“For me, that’s one of the reasons why Carel Eiting is here.
“He’s worked with us before and he was showing a desire to come back to Town.
“When he was here last, he had a high contribution to the Club and the positive dynamic of the team.
“He knows perfectly the players that we have here, he knows how we work, he knows the staff.
“Tomorrow he will be with the team, so if everything goes well, he will be available on Wednesday.
“He’s an immediate improvement to the squad.”
Looking ahead to Wednesday evening’s game, Town’s Head Coach discussed what he’s made of the Rams’ season so far.
“The work that they are doing with the players, staff, and Wayne Rooney has been excellent.
“They are facing the difficulty that they have with the points deduction with the highest level of respect.
“They are facing what they have to do, which is very difficult in that position.
“They are having a fantastic season.
“If you take away the points deduction, their position in the table would be totally different.
“They have experience and are using their resources very well.
“If you analyse their squad, they have a very good mix of players with experience and young players.
The Spaniard also provided his latest injury update.
“Ryan Schofield is going to have surgery next week, so his recovery is going to take more time than we expected.
“Pipa has trained today, so he can be available on Wednesday.
“Levi Colwill continues the longer-term recovery.”
