Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner says that his side will fight to make an apparent impossible task possible as he takes his side to the Capital to face last season’s Premier League Champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The Head Coach was speaking to the press at Tuesday’s Pre-Match Press Conference held at the Club’s PPG Canalside Training Complex.

David shared his thoughts on Sunday’s goalless draw against current Champions Man City, explaining how the positive performance will help to fuel his sides excitement for the trip to Chelsea, as The Terriers aim to secure their Premier League status for another season.

There was also an update on the availability of his squad, as he shared that Tom Ince will be back in the squad having recovered from injury. Town’s Head Coach also told of a small question mark on the availability of both Chris Löwe and Terence Kongolo; but he hoped to have them available for the game.

Speaking at his Press Conference, David Wagner said:

“Even if our confidence and the belief that we have everything in our hands that we have - and we are able to - get what we need from the last games. It helps for sure, every good result and performance helps for your confidence and your beliefs.

“On Sunday, it was a very good performance and result against City. Now it’s in the past and we’re onto the next one which is a very exciting one against Chelsea away. They are a very good team, they are still fighting for the top four after their very good form and results. We need some further points on the board to make our Premier League status mathematically safe and this is how it looks for tomorrow’s game.

“We will see how the guys look, we will train in the afternoon and tomorrow morning as well and we will make the decision that makes sense. How many fresh legs do we need and what will be the best for tomorrow’s game. We are used to rotation since day one when we arrived, the players are used to it and if it makes sense we will use it.

“Tom Ince will be back, he is in training and will be part of the squad. Chris Löwe and Terence Kongolo got knocks but they recovered yesterday and were treated; there is a small question mark behind both, but I think – and hope – that they will be both be available. Other than that, everyone else that was available at City will be fine.

“Chelsea are the former Champion, they have a very good Manager and a great team in great form. This is anything but easy, but we’ve said this more than often now, we will try it, fight for it, work for it and try to make something that looks an impossible task possible.”
