Huddersfield Town head coach Mark Fotheringham spoke in his most recent press conference about his team news and our upcoming Sky Bet Championship game against Watford.
In his press conference with the media, Mark spoke about team news and an injury update ahead of our Sky Bet Championship game against Watford on Saturday afternoon.
“The plan was for Tino Anjorin to start against Sheffield United but he sustained an ankle injury the day before the game.
“It’s a serious injury and we’re devastated for him as he’s worked so hard to build his fitness back from his illness – he’s a big player for us and he brings a lot of creativity into the final third so now we We’ll just help him as best we can.
“Etienne Camara had Covid last week but he is back in the running tomorrow after a strong week of training.
“It was great to see Jonathan Hogg and Tyreece Simpson on the pitch last weekend but we need to build them up as they’ve been out a long time – they’re a real influence on the team.”
Our head coach spoke about the breakthrough of the younger players and what they bring to the team.
“Brahima Diarra will start this weekend, he is ready to play in the Sky Bet Championship and I am ready to see what he can do against the big names in the Watford side.
“Diarra is still young so we have to be careful but the academy will be really proud of him alongside Etienne Camara, Loick Ayina and Brodie Spencer as they all stood up when we needed them.
“Younger players only come into our group when they deserve it and I’m really proud to see how they’re developing – we’re lucky to have so many experienced professionals at this club who can help them on their way .”
Fotheringham touched on the importance of fans and the need for them to get behind the boys.
“When our fans have our back, we’re like a different animal – players can feel that extra boost to make that important tackle or continue that run, and we need that boost to help us move up the table.”
“The fans are the 12th man.”
Finally, Mark looked ahead to tomorrow’s match against Watford in the Sky Bet Championship.
“I respect Watford, they’re a good club and a team I’ve always enjoyed playing against – they’ll be a big test for us.
“Slaven Bilić is a big name in world football and someone I admire but we want those three points and we’ll have the home crowd behind us.”
