Head Coach Carlos Corberán hopes his Huddersfield Town side can continue to build on their pre-international break momentum during Saturday’s game against Swansea City.

The Spaniard has been pleased with how his players have utilised the period since their last outing, over the international break, to continue to grow as a team on the training pitch.

Ahead of the weekend’s trip to the Liberty Stadium, Carlos looked back on the last few weeks’ work and underlined its importance going into a busy period of games.

“Every time we have more time with the players, I think they are reacting very well, and we are growing as a team,” he said.

“When I watch the players, I feel that they are more comfortable, that their habits are clearer and that they feel fresher from a fitness point of view to make more consecutive efforts.

“It was important to arrive to this period of games with this feeling because we know that from now until the next international break, we are not going to have the same weeks of work.”

Saturday’s game at the Liberty Stadium is the first of seven games in the space of three weeks prior to the next international break next month.

Town’s Head Coach acknowledges that it will be a challenging period physically but insists it’s an opportunity for his side to continue to evolve as a team.

“We are going to play seven games in a row with two or three days of recovery. It’s going to be a very demanding period of games but from a fan point of view, you want a lot of consecutive games to enjoy watching football.

“It’s an opportunity to continue growing together, to continue making better things on the pitch. We need to use these games to continue the process we have been working on until now.”

The first of those opportunities comes against a side that have made an unbeaten start to the campaign, with three wins from their opening four league fixtures seeing the Swans occupy fourth place in the Sky Bet Championship table going into Saturday’s game.

Speaking during his virtual press conference on Thursday afternoon, Carlos detailed what he expects from Steve Cooper’s side.

“Swansea is a strong team; they have a strong squad.

“They are working with this coach (Steve Cooper) for the second season. They didn’t make a lot of signings because they are creating some stability which I think is positive.

“It’s a team that played in the Play-Offs, a team that has performed really strongly in the last year and one that started strongly this year too.

“I think it’s going to be a challenge because both teams will look to play with similar identities and similar football behaviours. I think it will be a nice challenge for us and for them too.”
