- Enjoyed a good performance against Newcastle United with Town B
- Defender appreciative of Carlos’ presence at match
Huddersfield Town defender Rarmani Edmonds-Green was delighted to return to action as he featured for the first time this season after returning from a hip injury.
Edmonds-Green played the full first half of the B Team’s 1-0 victory over Newcastle United on Friday afternoon, putting in a resolute display as captain to help his side claim a deserved clean sheet.
“I was just happy to be back because it has been a long six weeks for me,” stated Edmonds-Green.
“I was injured before for three weeks and then it took another six weeks, so to say that I have come back and got some proper minutes in me was more relieving for me because I am just happy to be healthy and now I am ready for the next game.
“It has been frustrating, but you have to look at it as a positive because it’s a way to come back better when you get injured.
“My rehab went really well, and to get back out there and play 45 minutes was good.
“It was a good performance from the lads, and it could have been a lot more – the first half we had loads of chances.
“We got a clean sheet, so I am happy with the performance.
“It is good to win games because you get that winning mentality, so I am pleased with the win today.
“I was really impressed [with the performance], we had some young lads playing in the second half and I thought they played really well to keep the clean sheet and see out the win.”
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán was in attendance as the Young Terriers put in an astute display against a strong Newcastle side. Edmonds-Green believes that Corberán’s presence shows the trust that he has in Town’s Academy, praising the use of the B Team for this reason.
“Seeing the Head Coach (Corberán) here to watch our games shows that he does care about us and that if we do well, then he will give us that chance, which some of the other lads have had.
“Rom (Romoney Crichlow) has started [for the first team] this season and to see the Manager come and watch the game shows that he cares about us; we just need to keep going as a team, keep winning games, and show that we want to be in the first team and take it from there.
“The B Team is really important; it has taken a proper step up from the previous years that I have been here, so the games are a lot harder and it is good competition to get yourself fit and to get yourself back into the side.”
