Danny Williams spoke of his excitement as he nears a return to action after a 'long' 5 months out injured.

The USA international missed the back end of the last campaign but reiterated his intentions to pull on a Terriers jersey sooner rather than later.

"I got injured in March, and it was complicated. I had no time off. It was a long summer. It was made easier in the surroundings of Los Angeles though!"

"It was tough. It was probably the hardest I've worked to get ready for pre-season. I'm happy to be where I am now; I'm not 100%, but I am definitely happy with the progress."

Town's number 19 felt right at home in the wake of the rehabilitation period, explaining how everyone associated with the Club made the road to recovery as smooth as possible.

"The coaches and staff have been amazing. The support from everyone made it easy for me. It gave me more motivation to be able to compete in the Premier League again."

"I'd finally found my rhythm, and then the injury just happened in training. I was devastated, but I’m a positive character and had to bounce back. I'm happy to be back training with the boys again, and I'm looking forward to the season."

Williams is hoping to progress his rehab and return to the squad for Tuesday's Carabao Cup fixture against Stoke City; a game that he thinks will be a good test, and one that shouldn't be taken lightly.

"I spoke to the medical team and the boss. We were aiming for the Stoke City game."

"These games are very useful. You can get fitness back. If you win, it's good to get confidence. Especially after the last two results against City and Chelsea. It should be a good match."

"The cup is always different. I'm sure they're up for it, especially with Tom Ince who enjoyed a good season here last year. We shouldn't look too much into their start to the season, and we should focus on our own strengths and weaknesses."

Both Tom Ince and Ramadan Sobhi could face off against their respective former Clubs on Tuesday, if selected.

"Spending a year with Tom I saw he was a great guy; it will also be the same for Ramadan (Sobhi).”
