Huddersfield Town man will have to remain patient for his chance to impress Danny Cowley for now

This article is part of Football League World’s ‘Player View’ series, this content strand is where we put ourselves in the shoes of a given player, and offer an opinion-based outlook on the situation at hand…

It’s safe to say that it’s not been the season that many Huddersfield Town fans would have originally hoped for, in what was their first campaign outside of the Premier League. 

The Terriers currently sit 19th in the Championship table, and a poor start to this season saw Jan Siewert replaced by Danny Cowley in charge of the club.

Since Cowley came in, Huddersfield have certainly shown improvement in their results, with the former Lincoln boss pulling his side out of the relegation zone, which is something they’ll be keen to stay clear of heading into the festive period.

There have been a number of players that have struggled for game time this season in the Huddersfield squad, with Josh Koroma being one of those.

The 21-year-old signed for the Terriers in the summer transfer window from Leyton Orient, but hasn’t endured the start he would have hoped for this term.

In total, Koroma has made just two appearances for Huddersfield this season, and it seems unlikely that he’ll be able to force his way into Danny Cowley’s plans anytime soon.

That’s not criticising Koroma’s ability at all, as he’d be worth a shot for most teams in the Championship, but given the form of Karlan Grant, it’s clear to see why the former Leyton Orient man isn’t featuring as much as he would have liked to.

Grant has hit nine goals so far this season, and it would be a ludicrous decision by Cowley if he was to drop Grant from the starting XI anytime soon.

Koroma has recently been featuring for the Huddersfield Under-23’s side, and was on hand to provide an assist for their fourth goal against Blackpool.

So, he’ll cut a frustrated figure at this moment in time, but he’ll know that he’ll have to remain patient for now, especially given the fact that Karlan Grant has been in impressive form so far for Danny Cowley’s first team.
