Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley has been working hard with his players ahead of this weekend’s game against Derby County.
After the mid-week defeat against Cardiff City, the Terriers have a quick turnaround in matches as their attentions now turn towards this weekend’s game against Derby County at Pride Park.
With only a limited time between matches, Danny explained how the team has been learning from their mistakes against the Bluebirds.
“We have got an honest group.
“It’s always a collective responsibility for us, we win together, and we lose together.
“For us, we try to learn in different ways, you learn on the training field for sure but sometimes when the games are coming thick and fast you have to find different ways of learning.
“We just want to get better, that’s all we want to do.”
Derby County currently sit 13th in the Sky Bet Championship and are 10 points off the Play-Off places.
They come into this game having only lost two matches since the turn of the year.
After analysing them, Town’s Manager explained what he expected from the Rams.
“We have a good understanding of Derby; they have some really good attacking players.
“If you look at their squad and the quality of their players, they should be in a higher position than they are, but they have a very good home form.
“They will have been disappointed to lose on Wednesday in a game they seemed to dominate.
“I think their away form hasn’t been as good but certainly at home they are a formidable opposition.”
Danny Cowley also revealed the latest team news to the press following Cardiff City on Wednesday.
“We’re hopeful that he (Karlan Grant) will be back; it would be a real plus if he is. If he’s not then we will try and take the learning from the Cardiff game to our offensive play.
“Pritch is gritting his teeth and is willing to put his body on the line for the team and for the Club. He has trained consistently which is good, but the process has to be gradual so that he gets to a place where physically and mentally he feels good to play at his best. He wants to come back to impact and influence the team.
“We took Jonathan Hogg off due to a possible hamstring injury, which we have found is more tendon related than tissue, which is a good thing. We would desperately like him to be available because he is an important player for us.”
