Winger ready for clash with former employers
Danny Ward told htafc.com that he and his teammates are fully focused on the job in hand this weekend following a good week of training.
Town head in to the Bolton clash on the back of two defeats and following a week of hard graft, Ward feels that the Terriers are ready to go.
“We had a discussion during the week where we all said our peace and said what we wanted out of each other to help us get back to winning ways,” said Danny. “We know we have the players to be better than where we currently are and hopefully we can put the week’s work in to practice on Saturday. Everyone is eager for the game to come around and try and get back on the winning path.
"Last Saturday wasn’t nice; losing isn’t a good feeling especially against a rival. There is always that bit more in the game against your local team, but we need to but the last few results behind us and fully focus on Saturday.”
Danny joined Town from Saturday’s opponents having joined them as a 16 year-old in 2007.
“It will be good to play against them and nice to see a few faces that I haven’t seen for a while,” he told htafc.com. “I made my debut when I was 18 and still a few of the lads that I played with that day are in the squad now.”
The winger went onto make his debut at the start of the 2009/10 season before going out on loan to Swindon for the season.
“I remember us getting beat badly!” Danny said about his debut. “I came on with about ten minutes to go when we were playing against Sunderland at home. I think we were losing maybe three or four nil when I came on and we were basically playing long ball football trying to nick a few goals. I didn’t really get many touches of the ball, but it was a great experience to be a part of a Premier League game.”
Bolton are currently off the pace in the npower Championship and currently sit 18th in the table.
“I thought they would have done a bit better. They have got the players within their squad to get them back up into the Premier League; I won’t be surprised when they put together a run of results and are near the top challenging.”
