Huddersfield Town Women face a big test as they return to action against unbeaten table-toppers Wolves Women on Sunday and assistant boss Kamran Hussain said: “Everyone is raring to go!”
Town’s cup match last weekend against Brighouse was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, so the Terriers have had extra time to prepare for this clash.
Hussain, assistant to Glen Preston who was appointed in November, said: “The questions asked of these players week in week out since we’ve come in have been of a high standard. We have maintained a high benchmark.
“Wolves are another one of those sides who will ask questions of us, who we have to overcome. It is a game where we can win for sure. The preparation is always detailed.
“The team spirit, culture and environment has pulled together this week like no other week. Everyone is raring to go.”
The Terriers have tightened up at the back under the new management team and Hussain added: “Town were a team full of goals before we came in. We have maintained this whilst keeping the opposition to a minimum scoring against us.
“Everyone in the league knows three points changes the table. This all comes at a cost, where everyone has to dig deep in the big moments.”
