It’s a busy Championship schedule - but that doesn’t bother Huddersfield Town’s German defender Christopher Schindler.

Last season his club 1860 Munich played 34 Bundesliga second tier games as opposed to Town’s 46 Championship engagements this term.

It’s match number 10 at home to Rotherham United on Tuesday, with a weekend trip to Ipswich Town to come.

That’s after Schindler and Co’s clash at Reading last Saturday.

“There are far more midweek games here than in Germany,” said Town’s record £1.8m summer signing.

“There we had maybe three a season. Here we have had that already. It keeps you on your feet!”

Schindler, 26, has noticed other differences.

“It’s a bit tougher, more powerful and faster here,” he added.

“Opponents often have a big man up front, a strong striker who is physical and tests you.

“You have to get used to coping with that.

“But the referees here give you more leeway, they stop the game less.

“You can play that little bit harder when you try to control these strong strikers!”
