Sky Sports pundit, Don Goodman, has insisted that players at Huddersfield won’t be able to fool Danny Cowley when it comes to putting in passion and fight for the club.
This comes after Sunday’s 4-2 defeat to West Brom, where the Terriers went in to the half-time break ahead.
They are still winless in the league this season and sit rock bottom of the division after eight games of the new campaign.
Danny Cowley made certain comments after the game to Sky Sports where he questioned some of the commitment from the players, he said: “I have seen some people really fighting hard – but they all need to do it.
“It has to be everybody, and that is something we have spoken about in the dressing room.”
Pundit, Goodman, interpreted what he thought about the statement that the Huddersfield boss had made.
Speaking about Cowley’s comments on Sky Sports, Goodman said: “That’s a statement that tells them (the players) that they can’t fool him (Cowley).
“I don’t know particularly which players (he was referring to), but he has asked players to do certain things within the confines of the game and, clearly, some of them have done it better than others and with more passion.
“And I think that’s a minimum requirement when you find yourself down at the bottom of any league table – (to show) passion and fight is the minimum requirement.”
It’s quite a fair point made from Goodman and it’s clear to see at points that the Terriers aren’t all putting in the required effort for the new boss.
Cowley has noticed it, and he’ll want that to change as soon as possible so he and his side can escape from the relegation zone and push up the league.
They host Millwall on Saturday, and that already has the feeling of a big fixture for Cowley and his side.
