Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán says Stoke City will be one of the toughest Sky Bet Championship games his side have had to play so far.

Town travel to the bet365 Stadium for their first game back in action following the international break.

Carlos broke down how his squad used the break.

“The idea of the international break was to use the first few days as rest days.

“After the first three days, we used the rest of the international break to work.

“In the first week we looked at attacking ideas and the defence of the team.

“We know we have a very demanding game coming up, so the second week we had enough time to prepare for that.”

Looking ahead to Saturday’s game, Town’s Head Coach says he knows the Potters will be a strong opponent to face.

“They’re a very good team with a very good squad.

“There’s going to be one of the more difficult game that we are going to play and that we have played so far.

“When I watch Stoke City I see a team that have developed very fast to the ideas of the Coach.

“They are more aggressive in defence than they were last year.

“They are playing with a lot of personality in attack and they have players with a lot of skill. “

The Spaniard also provided the latest team news, including an update on Aaron Rowe.

“Aaron Rowe has come back to training, but hasn’t trained with the team yet.

“He felt an irritation and so couldn’t train with the group. We hope that he can within the next week.

“We know that Pipa and Jordan Rhodes are longer term injuries, so I don’t need to go into that.

“The only player that is a doubt is Danny Ward.

“In the last training session, he felt some irritation in the side of his hip.

“He’s going to have a test to see whether or not he can train, but we don’t think it’s anything important.

“If we don’t involve him on Saturday, it’s more for precaution than because it’s an important injury.

“All the other players will be available.”
