Wagner expected Huddersfield’s poor form

David Wagner said that “it’s not a real surprise” that Huddersfield have been in a poor form lately after their great start to the Premier League campaign and he remains calm.

Huddersfield Town lost just one of their first five matches of the season and the expectations were high after a start like that but David Wagner insisted that he remained realistic even after that and expected this poor run to come. He added that his players should use matches like that as an experience and advice how to improve in the upcoming festive period.

The German coach spoke about his side’s form as he said, according to Sky Sports“First of all I think this is not something we enjoy to have a few defeats in a row and not the best period. We have had experience in the Championship of having less successful periods and we were always able to bounce back. This shouldn’t be a surprise that this happens in the Premier League and we will try everything to turn it around on Saturday.”

He continued by adding that he is not worried about how his side will manage to go through festive December: “I’m not worried about December the only thing I have in my head is Brighton. The next game at home, where we have a great opportunity to come to our best against an opponent with a very good manager with a lot of quality.”

In the end, David Wagner claimed that it is important to remain successful at home: “We are aware how big this game is for us and we will do everything we can to extend our home record. For this we will need everybody in the stands, this is why I’m so confident and why I am so happy to be playing at the John Smith’s Stadium again.”
