6 assists: The Huddersfield player who’ll be hoping rumoured managerial appointment is true

Published

Huddersfield Town are continuing their search to find Jan Siewert’s successor, after the 37-year-old was dismissed after a poor start to the season in the Championship. 

According to BBC Radio Leeds, Nigel Adkins is one of the managers that the Terriers have made an approach for recently, although it remains to be seen as to whether there has been any progress in those talks between the two parties.

If Adkins was to arrive at Huddersfield, then it would see him work with Fraizer Campbell again, who was hugely impressive for Hull last season.

In our latest FLW Spotlight, we look into Campbell’s statistics from last year’s campaign with Adkins at Hull City.

Campbell hasn’t made an instant impact at Huddersfield this season, since he moved to the club in the summer transfer window.

But he’ll fancy his chances of featuring on a more regular basis if Adkins was to arrive, as the former Hull boss handed the experienced forward 31 league starts last term.

With Karlan Grant and Steve Mounie likely to be challenging Campbell for his starting spot in the Huddersfield team, competition for places can only be a good thing as they look to bounce back from a disappointing opening six games of the season.

Campbell has shown that he can score regularly at this level though, having scored 12 league goals for Hull last season as they finished 13th in the Championship table.

But the 31-year-old has also shown that he can provide his team-mates with opportunities, having been on hand to provide six assists last term for the Tigers.

Campbell is somewhat of a ‘poacher’ and with 75 touches in the box throughout last year’s league campaign, he’s a real threat going forward for the Terriers this term if he can get off the mark in the near future.

He attempted 490 passes over the 2018/19 season, and with a pass accuracy of 70.6%, it certainly makes for good reading for Campbell, who will be keen to show that he was a good signing for Huddersfield at the earliest of opportunities.

The Terriers will be looking to have a permanent manager in place for when they return to action against Sheffield Wednesday after the international break, as they go in search of their first win of the season.

There have been changes over the summer with the squad, but there is definitely enough quality in the Huddersfield team to be targeting a top-half finish in the Championship.

But that all depends on when a new manager is appointed, so the sooner that happens, the better for the Terriers.
