Huddersfield Town defender Michael Hefele spoke to #HTTV ahead of this weekend’s Emirates FA Cup Third Round match against Bolton Wanderers.

‘Hef’ praised the coaching staff and medical team at Huddersfield Town for helping him return to fitness after his Achilles injury, whilst also explaining why he wanted to return to Germany for his injury rehab.

The defender went on to recall Town’s run in the Emirates FA Cup and his two goals in the Fourth Round of the competition against Rochdale after being brought on as a striker, as well as discussing this weekend’s opponent Bolton Wanderers.

He went into detail on why Huddersfield Town will be focused on the Third Round match, how he’s been fighting to return to match fitness and how every player is ready to take their chance if they’re given it on Saturday.

Looking ahead to this weekend’s Emirates FA Cup match Michael Hefele commented:

“This is the Emirates FA Cup and it’s a proper competition.

“We want to go into the next round and in this cup game it doesn’t matter what league you are in, it’s all about the working attitude, the character, the quality and the desire to get into the next round.

“Bolton won there last two Sky Bet Championship games and they will want to beat Huddersfield Town.

“We want to go into the next round, so it’ll be a very tough battle.

“We will be very aggressive and on our highest level on Saturday to get into the next round.”
