Speaking to Examiner Live, Huddersfield Town manager Danny Cowley has confirmed that they were in attendance of Peterborough United’s 2-0 win over Lincoln City to have a look at some potential transfer targets at the Posh.
In the summer transfer window, Huddersfield Town brought in a few players from lower leagues, signing high-quality players to bolster their ranks at a cheaper price. Attacker Josh Koroma joined from League Two side Leyton Orient and playmaker Reece Brom also made the step up from the fourth tier, signing from Forest Green Rovers.
Now, with the Cowley brothers at the helm – who both have extensive knowledge of the lower leagues from their time with Lincoln City – they Terriers are looking into bringing in players from lower divisions once again.
Danny Cowley has confirmed that they watched some Peterborough United players as potential transfer targets with the January transfer window now just over two months away. He also stated that they could use their strong knowledge of non-league to bring in some young talents as well, saying:
“We watched Peterborough against Lincoln, which was a good opportunity for us to have a look at some players in the Peterborough team, which is certainly something we’ve wanted to do.
“We are very aware of all the young players we have and we have very good connections in the non-league ourselves. We had a couple of those boys (already at Town) played for us in a squad game last week, which was a real positive.
“We managed to pick up the Under 23s game against Tranmere here, when we beat a strong Tranmere team 3-0, which was also very positive because we were very young on the day. So we are slowly getting to know the younger players at the club – and we have certainly liked what we have seen so far.”
Peterborough United have enjoyed a thoroughly successful start to the season, leaving them sat in 3rd place and just three points behind leaders Ipswich Town. The likes of Mo Eisa, Ivan Toney and Marcus Maddison have all starred so far, so it will be interesting to see who Huddersfield were taking a look at.
