Huddersfield Town have recently confirmed Danny Cowley as their new manager, as they look to turn around their poor start to the season.
The Terriers currently occupy one of the relegation places, and Cowley will know the task at hand that he will be walking into this term.
Speaking exclusively to Football League World’s Chief Editor Sam Rourke, Sky Sports pundit David Prutton issued his thoughts on Cowley’s appointment.
“I think it’s a good move for him and his brother. What he’s done with Lincoln over the last three seasons has been fantastic.
“As we’ve seen across football, money doesn’t always mean success, so you can’t take anything away from what he’s done with Lincoln and the next point of call in his managerial journey was to move up the ladder and it’s going to be a huge test.
Prutton labelled Huddersfield’s previous appointment of Jan Siewert as a ‘disaster’ and feels as though it’s going to be a tough test for Cowley to turn their fortunes around.
“That club certainly needs turning around. To bring Jan Siewert in was a disaster and from them being a Premier League side punching way above its weight.
“Now it’s struggling at the wrong end of a division which they didn’t set alight in the seasons before their promotion.
“So, it’s going to be really tough for Danny, but it’s a really good opportunity for him and his brother, and you’ve got to wish them both the best.”
Cowley’s first game in the dugout for Huddersfield is on Sunday, when they take on Sheffield Wednesday, in what will be a tricky fixture for the Terriers.
