Defender wants win before the break

Welsh international Jazz Richards is enjoying his time at Town.

The on loan Swansea man has made eight appearances for the Terriers since joining in September and his form has earned him another call-up to Chris Coleman’s Wales’ squad.

The right-back has been included in the squad to take on Finland next week in an international friendly.

On his first couple of months with the Terriers, Jazz said: “It has been a bit up and down, we have had some good results and some bad ones, but I think we are getting stronger as the season continues.

“I am enjoying my football at the minute, playing with a good group of lads.”

Birmingham poses the next challenge for Town this Saturday and the 22 year-old wants a win before he departs to play for Wales.

“We can’t take them lightly because it will be a difficult game; however, it is a really good opportunity to win three points. Hopefully we can go into the international break with a victory.

“The Christmas period is probably one of the toughest during the season and it is important that you pick up a couple of good results. You want to go into the New Year in a strong position and I believe we can do that. As the season has progressed our football has improved and we just need to keep believing in one another.”

On Mark Robins, Jazz said: “He understands my style of football and knows what I can do. It is good to know that the manager understands and believes in you and it has made me far more comfortable within the team.”

Jazz has made three appearances for Wales with his latest, against Belgium, being the first start of his international career.

“There are a number of good players who play in my position, but it was really good to play against Belgium. Hopefully I can play more games going forward, starting next week.

“I speak to a few of the lads outside of the camp and there is a good atmosphere. Chris Coleman is a good manager and under him we have started playing better football. Hopefully he will stay and help us progress.”
