Striker wants to show his worth to David Wagner

- Jordy Hiwula discusses his return to Huddersfield Town
- Striker's loan at Wigan Athletic ended by David Wagner
- Hiwula wants to prove his worth to Town fans

Jordy Hiwula plans to use the second half of the 2015/16 Sky Bet Championship season to show Head Coach David Wagner exactly what he’s capable of in a Huddersfield Town shirt. 

The 21 year-old’s Standard Loan at League 1 Wigan Athletic was cut short by Head Coach David Wagner on the final day of the January 2016 transfer window, meaning he’s now eligible for selection for Town’s Sky Bet Championship game at Preston North End on Saturday. 

“It was a bit of a surprise to get called back, but I am happy. Obviously we have a new Head Coach who hasn’t seen much of me, so this is a chance for me to prove myself and show what I can do,” Jordy told on Wednesday.

“I learned a lot at Wigan; I felt like I did well there. 

“It is a big club for League 1 and although I’ve been involved in a team going for promotion at that level before when I was at Walsall, that did make things a bit different; it adds a bit more pressure. 

“They play some good football there in a formation that was different for me. I managed to get some games under my belt in a variety of positions and scored a few goals too, which was good for me. 

“I know the Head Coach came to watch me at Wigan, which was great to hear.” 

Jordy made just one competitive appearance after joining Town in the summer during Chris Powell’s management – as a substitute in the Capital One Cup – and now he’s looking forward to a fresh start under David Wagner. 

He continued: “Everything feels different. I came back yesterday and trained with the team and everything was quicker, sharper and more intense. It felt good. 

“I feel like I will fit in well to that. I can play in more than one position in our formation and that gives me more of a chance of slotting into the team. For now I will keep working hard to break into the side as soon as possible. When I get my opportunity, I’ll look to take it with both hands. 

“The Huddersfield fans haven’t really seen me play since I’ve been here, so hopefully they will now see more of me throughout the rest of the season. I want to show them what I can do too.” 

The former Manchester City man hopes that his first chance to impress might come at Deepdale this weekend:

“I’m really excited. Hopefully, if I train well all week, I might be involved on Saturday.

“This second half of the season will be a big step up for me, but I want to prove to everyone that I can play in the Championship.”
