League I challenge suits Huddersfield Town’s Celtic loanee Graham Carey

“It was a real scrap every week, and thankfully we managed to stay in the SPL, but the plan here is obviously to be pushing at the other end of the table,” he said.
“We’ve certainly been playing more of a passing game than St Mirren did, and I have to say the quality of the pitches down here helps, and I think that suits my style of play.
“We have some real quality in the dressing room, and it’s a pleasure to be playing alongside the boys here, and like I said, we all believe we can make the top two this season.”
Town aim to bounce back from defeats at Swindon and Rochdale when they tackle Bristol Rovers at the Galpharm this afternoon.
And Carey is confident of getting back on track.
“We’ve been very disappointed with the last two results, having got done late on at Swindon before losing at Rochdale by a scoreline which really didn’t reflect the match,” he said.
“The stats were amazingly one-sided in our favour, and when you create that many chances, you really expect to take a point, but they took their opportunities and we didn’t, simple as that.
“Bristol Rovers will be tough, just like most of the sides in this league, but we’ll keep at it, and there’s no reason why we can’t put a run together.”
Carey, whose sole Celtic appearance to date came in last season’s 3-3 Europa League draw with Rapid Vienna in Austria, has come up against Parkhead teammates in each of his last two games.
“Paul Caddis is at Swindon and Josh Thompson at Rochdale,” explained the man whose current Town deal lasts until January.
“It was interesting to play against them, and I think Celtic had a scout at both of the games, and I know they get DVDs of our matches sent up the road.
“They used to watch me often when I was at St Mirren, and the coaching staff will have a chat with me from time to time to assess how things are going.
“From my point of view, it’s so far, so good, and I hope both Huddersfield and Celtic feel that was as well.”
