Huddersfield Town defender Christopher Schindler has revealed what the club has been doing to ensure that the players return with the right physical and mental shape.
The club have been out of action since a defeat to Leeds United in March, and this has been due to the current situation that has impacted the majority of the world.
If the season is to return, the Terriers still need a number of victories to ensure survival after what has been a torrid first season back in the Championship after being relegated from the top-flight in the last campaign.
Danny Cowley is in charge of the club at this current time, and he has steadied the ship somewhat, although there is still work to be done.
Schindler has revealed what the players have been up to in order to try and help each other through a tricky period for all.
Speaking to the Yorkshire Post, Schindler said: “We had some (fitness) sessions over video so we can see each other and almost make sure we have the dressing room atmosphere.
“Especially for the guys who are alone and don’t have family with them, it’s really important. I have a wife and daughter so I’m kind of occupied with home schooling.”

It’s interesting hearing Schindler speak about the more personal factors that can seriously effect someone’s mental health. He’s spoken like a true leader in the Huddersfield side, and has shown his maturity off the pitch.
It’s good that the club has been doing fitness sessions during this lockdown period, and they have to try and use that to their advantage if the season gets back underway at some point in the coming months.
Huddersfield are still in a relegation battle despite climbing to safety before the season came to a halt, and Cowley will have no doubt made that clear to his squad.
It will be an interesting time if the season is to return, and the Terriers must make sure that first and foremost they stay in the division.
