‘Not easy for him’ – Andre Breitenreiter provides update on out of favour Huddersfield Town man

Huddersfield Town boss Andre Breitenreiter has spoken out about versatile midfielder Ben Wiles in an interview with The Yorkshire Post.

Huddersfield Town sit third from bottom as things stand. But they are one of four sides near the foot of the table separated by just one point. Their main objective will be retaining their Championship status for another season.

They need to get points on the board quickly. With just nine games to go they need their best players fit and firing, whilst they will also need the players on the peripheries of the first-team fold to contribute as best they can at the business end of the campaign.

One player who is yet to have a big impact on the Terriers’ season so far is summer arrival Wiles. Signing from Rotherham United at the start of the term, the 24-year-old has played 25 times in the second tier. But he has not yet found the net and has registered just one assist.

Manager Breitenreiter has been in charge for six Huddersfield Town games so far, starting Wiles in his first two. But he has since used him sporadically or not at all.

Speaking to The Yorkshire Post, the Terrierrs boss gave an update on the out-of-favour man.

“Maybe he is not really fit as he has not played so often. Sometimes, you can think ‘okay, he (certain player) is not good enough. But he has quality and high potential,” he said.

“It was not easy for him because I heard he had a lot of pressure because of a lot of money for the signing.

“When you play on this level, you know about this and there’s so many things in his head.”

Can Wiles play a part for Huddersfield Town?

With nine games left to go, Breitenreiter and Huddersfield Town will need Wiles to pull his weight and contribute as best he can. As the boss states, he has quality and high potential, but we have only seen this in brief flashes.

In order to get the best out of his team and get the most points on the board as they possibly can in this final run-in the manager will need to be playing a consistent team and Wiles may not be the man to rely upon at this current time.

Perhaps he can be a big part of Huddersfield Town’s future however. He is just 24 years old and so if he can regain his form and fitness he could begin to make a name for himself at Kirklees.
