Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán says he knows that his side will have to work hard to keep Aleksandar Mitrović at bay when the Terriers travel to Craven Cottage on Saturday 19 February 2022.
Speaking to the press in his virtual press conference, Carlos discussed what he expects from Fulham.
“To get something positive against Fulham, we’ll need to defend really well.
“In the moments that we press, we’ll need to press really well.
“They’re a team that are able to break the press, so in the moments that we have the ball, we need to attack.
“We need to be focused and concentrate as they play a very good level of football.
“Aleksandar Mitrović is a specialist in the box.
“He’s a player who will be a challenge and you can’t find one solution to defend him because of the type of player that he is.
“He always moves in the right moment to the right space.
“He is the striker that he is because he does many things well.”
Town go into the game of the back of a 0-0 draw with Sheffield United on Saturday 12 February. Town’s Head Coach reflected on the game.
“We had a goal disallowed in the first half, but we can’t talk about what would have happened if that goal had been allowed.
“I watched 90 minutes where in some moments we were solid and stopped their chances, and in some moments we didn’t do enough.
“In some moments we managed the ball well in attack.
“For me, I found many positive things in attack, and many in defence too.”
The Spaniard also provided the latest injury update.
“Pipa isn’t going to be available on Saturday because he has a small problem with his groin.
“It’s normal for a player with a long-term injury to come back and pick up different injuries.
“They start to see the consequences of not being on the pitch and training normally – this is normal.
“We need to manage very well the minutes that he’s training with the team and the minutes that he plays.
“We don’t know yet how long he’ll be out, it all depends on how well he reacts to the medical treatment.
“Tino Anjorin is still working with the Chelsea medical staff.
“We hope that he will be with us next week.
“Levi Colwill had made some training sessions this week.
“Depending on how today’s training session goes, I will make a decision on him.”
