Huddersfield Town head coach David Wagner has told the Huddersfield Daily Examiner that the team will be able to cope without some of its key players.
After a superb start to the season, the Terriers were brought down to Earth after they were beaten 1-0 by Reading at the weekend which knocked them off the top of the Sky Bet Championship. And there are fears that another loss could be on its way for their Yorkshire Derby match against Rotherham United.
Three of their key players, Mark Hudson, Rajiv van la Parra and Chris Lowe, have all been ruled for the crunch match because they are set to serve one-match suspensions. While the club will be happy not to have them out for too long, losing so many big players ahead of a derby match is a huge blow for the coaching staff and it could end up being the deciding factor.
But Wagner is not worried about it as he said: “We have three bans to deal with, but I always said we had a strong squad and that all the players would be needed over the season,”
“Now we will think about the questions that the suspensions pose and try to come up with the right solutions.”
“I have total trust in my players and expect then to be fresh enough, brave enough and confident enough to beat Rotherham.”
“This game gives us a chance to turn our disappointment any maybe a few negative vibrations into positive vibrations.”
“We missed three points at Reading, but there were plenty of good things in out display with 10 men, so let’s go for three points against Rotherham.”
