The shining light in a poor start for Huddersfield

Published

on

Huddersfield find themselves with 1 point from their opening 8 games so far this season and they will be hoping that the recent appointment of Danny Cowley can be the catalyst for them to kickstart their season.

Huddersfield have lost their last six games on the bounce, two of which the Terriers found themselves in front in including the latest encounter with West Bromwich Albion where they surrendered a 2-1 lead to go on to lose 4-2 at The Hawthorns.

The games are coming thick and fast for Huddersfield with Millwall visiting the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday followed by a trip to Stoke in midweek, Huddersfield have a run of games now where they will be expected to start picking up points including the next two games along with a home fixture at Hull to follow Stoke in midweek.

In a start where near enough every Huddersfield player has played particularly poor, one player has stood out for Huddersfield and that is Karlan Grant. Grant who arrived from Charlton in January of this year has his 5 goals in 8 games for the Terriers despite the team struggling to muster up a win so far.

Grant has featured in every game so far and has a scoring frequency of a goal every 144 minutes, which for a team struggling to gets points is quite a remarkable record. Grant’s scoring record is fantastic so far but in possession, he is just as good, with a 77% pass completion rate, Grant is able to work combination plays with his teammates while also holding the ball to get his team up the pitch.

While Grant is scoring plenty of goals up front, Huddersfield are struggling to keep the ball out the net at the other end and if they are to start picking up results, this needs to be resolved quickly. With the appointment of Cowley, he brings a grit and determination that Huddersfield need, this showed when Cowley was at Lincoln, towards the end of their promotion campaign last term, Cowley’s side carried on grinding out points while teams around them kept dropping points.

Huddersfield are going to have to show the same sort of determination to get themselves out of this mess and not end up doing what Sunderland did a couple of seasons ago, which is face back to back relegations.
