Fraizer Campbell believes the Emirates FA Cup game against Southampton has come at the right time for Huddersfield Town after a tough Christmas period.
The Terriers come into this game off the back of four Sky Bet Championship games in 11 days.
However, after the defeat against Stoke City, Fraizer believes the Emirates FA Cup is a welcomed distraction.
“We’ve had a lot of games in the last two weeks or so, so it’s nice to have something separate from the league.
“The FA Cup is a special cup, you can have a little run and a good time in it. It’s come at the right time and it would be nice to play some minutes in it.
“I’ve had a few tap-ins in the FA Cup. It’s a distraction from the league, you can relax more and if you do well in it and win a couple of games, you’re almost in the Quarter-Finals; it’s nice to participate in and hopefully we can have a little run and do well in it.
“You like to play against the big teams, Premier League teams, and test ourselves a little bit.”
Fraizer returned to action on 29 December 2019 after picking up an injury at the end of November.
The striker detailed how difficult that period was for him and how he’s feeling physically now.
“I’ve had a few weeks on the side-lines and I’m back in the mix now. I’m itching to get going.
“I just need to play some more minutes, get that fitness back again and continue where I left off.
“It was very frustrating (to be injured). Over the Christmas period there’s a lot of games played, and you’re sat on the side-line.
“We had a few other injuries, which made it even worse. You wanted to help the team, but you couldn’t because you were injured but that’s in the past now. Hopefully, I can start chipping in again.”
During his time out injured, Fraizer, alongside Lewis O’Brien, Jaden Brown and Ryan Schofield backed their teammates from the terraces.
“I went to Wigan away, I was in the stands; it was freezing. The pies were good though,” laughed the striker.
“I’ve done it before at previous clubs I’ve been at, but it’s different at Huddersfield. Obviously, I’m from here and I know half the people there.
“I went to watch the lads play and it’s always good to see it from the other side.”
