Ian Holloway has suggested that new Huddersfield Town boss Danny Cowley has got a “very, very tough” job on his hands turning around fortunes at the club.
After getting relegated from the Premier League last season, the Terriers are currently 23rd in the Championship, with just one point from seven games.
Cowley took over at the John Smith’s Stadium last week and saw his side fall to a 2-0 loss against Sheffield Wednesday last Sunday.
The 40-year-old coach was fantastic at Lincoln City, taking them from the National League to League One, reaching an FA Cup final as a non-league side and winning the Checkatrade Trophy.
However, writing in the Mirror, Holloway has suggested the job ahead of him at Huddersfield will be a testing one.
He said: “I think Danny Cowley knows how tough a job he has on his hands.
“Huddersfield lost a lot of their better players, including Aaron Mooy who is a sensational midfielder, and to try and fill the void that David Wagner left is very, very tough.
“But if anybody can do it, Danny and Nicky have a chance. I wish them every success and I hope they are given time.”
These comments will likely make worrying reading for Terriers fans but you can’t help but agree with Holloway, it looks like it is going to be a testing season for the Yorkshire club’s new boss.
Cowley did a sensational job at Lincoln and it appears he has another mammoth task on his hands at Huddersfield.
The Terriers seem to be in free fall at the moment and their trip to West Brom on Sunday doesn’t look like providing much of a respite.
