Coady setting high standards for 2015/16

By most people’s standards, Conor Coady had a pretty successful first season at Huddersfield Town – but the young midfielder isn’t satisfied.
After joining the Club from Liverpool and coming off the bench in Town’s opening day game against AFC Bournemouth, Conor went on to feature in 45 of the Club’s 46 Sky Bet Championship games.
Over the course of the season, only Player of the Year Jacob Butterfield and goalkeeper Alex Smithies played more league minutes than Conor.
Coady scored three important goals; a stunner at Wolves and another away goal at Wigan securing three points on both occasions, on top of a great header in the 2-2 Boxing Day draw at Rotherham United.
Conor also got three assists during his debut Championship season and his average of 45 passes per game was only second to midfield colleague Butterfield.
Despite this impressive resume, Conor wants more in the famous blue and white stripes in 2015/16.
“I’ve loved every second of my time here. Last season had its highs and lows, but it was all great experience,” Coady told htafc.com.
“I think we finished the season quite well, and that’s important. You don’t want to go into the break on the back of a bad run, because it plays on your mind.
“You want to feel good about things and have that spring in your step during pre-season training. It’s going to be a big season for me, and I really want to kick on.
“I had a chat with the manager before we all went our separate ways. We agreed that I will work on being more consistent, because I think I had a dip after Christmas.
“I need to up my number of goals and assists. Goals win games, and if you can either score or create one, it doesn’t half help the team.”
