According to The Yorkshire Post, Michael Hefele has revealed that Huddersfield Town will be prioritising the league over the FA Cup.
The Terriers’ recent run of impressive form has seen them emerge as genuine contenders for an automatic promotion spot as they vie with Newcastle United and Brighton and Hove Albion for the top two places in the Sky Bet Championship.
However, Huddersfield Town put aside their focus on the league for the upcoming FA Cup Fifth Round replay against Manchester City.
Huddersfield held the Premier League giants to a 0-0 draw at home and now are rewarded with a trip to the Etihad in the replay.
But star defender Michael Hefele insists that Huddersfield are far more interested in the weekend’s upcoming clash with promotion rivals Newcastle United on the weekend.
Huddersfield trail the Magpies by five points at the moment and will be looking to close that gap when they take them on this Saturday.
Huddersfield fans – what do you make of Hefele’s comments? Do you agree? Is it time to focus on the league rather than the cup? Can you still get promoted if you continue your cup run? Let us know in the comments below…
