Huddersfield Tipped To Survive

Huddersfield Tipped To Survive

Club legend Brian Stanton believes Huddersfield will survive in the Premier League again this season. The Terriers currently find themselves in the relegation zone following a three-match losing streak, while they have only won two of their 16 games in the top-flight so far this season.

A lack of goals has been Huddersfield’s main problem this term, as they are the lowest scorers in the division, with forwards Steve Mounie and Laurent Depoitre having failed to register a goal between them.

Despite those struggles, former winger Stanton, who enjoyed a seven-year playing career with Huddersfield, is confident the club has what it takes to ultimately preserve their top-flight status, although he expects the battle to go down to the wire.

“I’m optimistic about Town and I really do feel they’ve got what it takes to stay up,” Stanton told the Huddersfield Examiner.

“It’s going to be close and I know people will say I’m looking through things with blue and white-tinted glasses but I’ve seen enough to know they can climb the table.”

Stanton has pinpointed Alex Pritchard as someone who can play a key role in the survival battle, particularly given the news that Aaron Mooy will be sidelined until February with a knee injury.

He added: “Pritchard is one of those exciting players who get fans off their seats because people like him are always looking to make things happen. “He’s a gem because of the way he links up the midfield and attack and with his quick feet and the fact that he’s brave enough to have a go.”
