- Kieran Phillips on finding form with the Young Terriers
Huddersfield Town’s Elite Development Team striker Kieran Phillips is hoping to continue his good run of form when they face Wigan Athletic in the Premier League Cup on Friday.
Phillips, who joined the Club on loan from Everton in January, has made a great start to life back in the Blue and White stripes.
The 19-year-old has netted six goals in as many games, including a hat-trick in the recent 4-0 win over Blackpool.
Speaking ahead of the game, he revealed that he is keen to maintain this run ahead of the visit of the Latics.
“I think I have done well but I just have to keep that going as long as I can, then we will see where it goes.
“I want to try keep up my form and get the minutes under my belt.”
The striker also admitted that the prospect of playing regular football was a major factor in his decision to return to the Club.
“Initially it was the games and the training programme that attracted me back to Huddersfield Town. Obviously, I wasn’t playing much where I was before but now, I am here; playing and training regularly.
“I am playing consistently in games; that is the pull for me, playing football.”
Phillips has made an instant impact on Danny Schofield’s side following his recent arrival at PPG Canalside and hailed the Club’s Academy setup as the primary reason for his seamless transition.
“As you know I have been here before, so it has been pretty easy to settle in to be honest. All the lads are nice, and the staff are great.
“The environment around the place is top draw so I’ve settled in really quickly and easily.”
