Huddersfield Town are having to endure quite a bit of change at the moment. A new division, new manager and new players inevitably means that Danny Cowley will need time to discover his favoured 11.
His first test comes against Sheffield Wednesday and after, no doubt, having watched the Terriers latest defeat to Luton Town, it may be fair to assume that the new manager may look to make changes right away.
There are a plethora of changes that Cowley might want to impose, and here are two we think he’d be wise to seriously consider.
Pritchard for Campbell
In their defeat to Luton, Fraizer Campbell lead the line for Huddersfield in attack. Without a goal in his first three appearances for Huddersfield, perhaps the striker should be pushed back to make way for the club’s top scorer Karlan Grant. The striker maintained a deeper role in the last game but should return to that central scoring position for their next game.
Alex Pritchard – who came on as a substitute in that game – should come back into the starting 11 in that position just behind the striker. He is, without doubt, the club’s most creative player after he was pushed out of position on the wing under Jan Siewert. Playing centrally, Pritchard can be one of the most dangerous players in the league and will have great battle with Wednesday’s Barry Bannan should the two start on Sunday.
Adama Diakhaby for Elias Kachunga
Huddersfield have struggled for goals as of late. Other than Grant, only defensive midfielder Trevoh Chalobah has managed to score since the commencement of the new season. If Huddersfield are to start picking up points again, they have to have more than one goalscorer.
The last time Kachunga played in the Championship, he netted 12 goals for the Terriers in their promotion winning season. Whilst not being able to replicate the same success in the Premier League, in the second tier, the winger is extremely effective and will score goals given the chance. He is more experienced than Diakhaby and it may show through the course of the season.
