Robins previews Sunday’s game with Yeovil
Huddersfield Town Manager Mark Robins and the players were back at Canalside this morning, with recovery at the top of the agenda ahead of Sunday’s home clash with Yeovil.
Town play on home soil for the second time in the space of four days when the Glovers come to HD1 on Saturday and Robins believes his team are in for another tough test on the back of draws against the in-form Brighton and Derby.
“Yeovil have a good manager in Gary Johnson and he’s brought in a lot of good players to the Club recently,” Mark told htafc.com. “He’s trying to improve his options all the time and they will pose a challenge on Sunday, as they pass the ball well.
“In the Championship every team scraps for their life in every game and Sunday will be no different. There’s no room for complacency.
“What’s important for us is getting all three points, just as it is in every game – however we get them. We have a few bumps and bruises to contend with from the Derby game, but we will make sure that everyone is prepared to go out and perform.”
With the games coming thick and fast over the festive period, Town’s technical staff are making the most of the time they get to prepare the players for the next fixture.
Mark continued: “At this stage of the season it’s about mental preparation as much as anything else and we’ll get the players ready for Sunday. With just three days between games it’s about rest and recovery, because the performances have to remain at a high standard. We’re working very hard at Canalside to give ourselves a competitive edge out on the pitch.”
The good news for Robins is that the players coming into the side recently, such as Scottish centre back Murray Wallace, have been performing well.
“Murray works really hard on a daily basis and that gave him the best possible opportunity to make an impact when he got his chance. We tell all the players outside the team that their chance will come and it is up to them to be ready to take it and it is a testament to Murray’s professionalism that he’s done well.
“I’m really pleased for him, because he’s performed to a high standard against the two form teams in the division. He should now go on and do well.”
