Huddersfield face Sheffield Wednesday at the Sky Bet Championship on Sunday. Coverage gets underway live on Sky Sports Football from 11.30am, whilst kick-off is at midday.
As they face Sheffield Wednesday at the Championship on 22, Huddersfield will be steered by danny Cowley in their very first match under his leadership. Cowley, who was appointed following Huddersfield parted ways with supervisor Jan Siewert, left his role at Lincoln to join the team.
The Terriers boss has confirmed that he has a complete squad at his disposal without the injury issues, ahead of the struggle . However to maintain a triumph and also in possession of 1 stage, the changes could ring as he tries to alter the fortunes of Huddersfield.
Additionally are competitions Wednesday, who journey to the Kirklees Stadium to their first game under new boss Garry Monk. Headed by caretaker director Lee Bullen because Steve Bruce’s departure, Wednesday sit mid-table with played with matches.
Defensive stalwart Tom Lees may overlook Monk’s initial fixture with uttered a hamstring injury while warming up for the Owls’ game against QPR. Joe Wildsmith remains sidelined with a injury, while his suspension is started by Fernando Forestieri and will be unavailable.
Huddersfield have scored only three goals and have dropped their last five fixtures in all contests. Karlan Grant saw the opener since Luton fought back to win 2-1 final time out, seven days after Reading were 2-0 victors at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Caretaker Wednesday boss Lee Bullen had steered the club to 11th after six games, overseeing league wins Luton, Barnsley and Reading, though QPR were successful in Hillsborough before the worldwide break.
Huddersfield manager Danny Cowley:”This is the early stage for individuals, in business I believe they speak about 30-60-90-day phases, in soccer you don’t always get as long, so perhaps we are speaking 15, 30 and 45-days, but certainly within this first process we will need to audit the Club and see what’s great. Undoubtedly we’re going to run with these and there’s some processes already set up , we might run using the typical ones due to the timeframe we are working within.
“Surely, we will look at the places we can effect and in which we can get some quick drops and in which we believe we could have the maximum impact. We are going to look to implement those slowly but surely, and we’re going to simply make change for significant profits. We are going to be looking to find out where we could get those wins.”
Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk: There’s been a very long time. I’m a new manager coming in and that I think the key is not to over-bear the players with too much stuff I need to do, but enough that they can carry the notions we are going to attempt to work on and set them on the pitch.
“Games come thick and fast and we’re likely to be going into a busy period, so we’ll try and operate in between that to try to make that better and clearer. It’s quite a unique situation this weekend but I’ve enjoyed it.”
It had been out of Danny Cowley and his brother Nicky. Just later after turning down the opportunity to manage Huddersfield over a week, he is going to be hauled in the dugout in the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday as his new side takes on Sheffield Wednesday, live on Sky Sports Football.
Along with his brother and assistant Nicky, have taken the jump from Lincoln – who are near the top of League 1 – to Huddersfield with 1 league win in 2019 and spot in the Championship.
Cowley could have heeded lessons from lower-league managers that have fought when creating the step up. Paul Hurst along with Nathan Jones are just two who have laboured after departing League One nightclubs, but the 40-year-old believes that he has what it takes to flip the situation around. However, it will not be a speedy fix.
“This is a mindset thing,” he said. “We’ve spoken to a lot of people around the team that think that they are just one win from changing that, but I’m not so sure.”
In all contests, Huddersfield are winless in two matches against Sheffield Wednesday (W0 D4 L5).
Sheffield Wednesday haven’t conceded one goal in any of the last seven matches in the John Smith’s Stadium against Huddersfield (W4 D3 L0).
Huddersfield have failed to score more than once in every one of the last 29 home games in all competitions – should they neglect to do this against Sheffield Wednesday, it might be a record amount of consecutive games by means of a Football League Club in all contests, with Blackpool also going 29 games between December 2013 and February 2015.
Sheffield Wednesday haven’t dropped three consecutive away league games since October 2017.
Because their 1-0 win over Wolves at the John Smith’s Arena in February, Huddersfield haven’t led to get one minute in some of the seven home league games (W0 D1 L6).
Sheffield Wednesday striker Steven Fletcher hasn’t scored in three consecutive league matches since a run of five between May and September 2012 for Sunderland and sailors.
Two directors in the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday. What a minute this is for his brother Nicky along with Danny Cowley, handling a negative that were at the Premier League last year, having been PE managers and teachers just a couple of decades ago.
In the dugout would be Garry Monk, that, apart from his time at Middlesbrough, has left every club he’s been at in a better position than where he found it. I think he will be a good match at Sheffield Wednesday and he’ll start with a win. Just!
David Prutton forecasts: 1-2 (9/1 with Sky Bet)
