OSCAR GOBERN looked ahead to Huddersfield Town’s tour of Scotland and said: “It’s a great opportunity to continue that gelling process.”
The close-season midfield recruit from Southampton, pictured left, has caught the eye in both the club’s senior friendlies so far.
Now he wants the whole squad to build on the 1-0 win at Gateshead and 2-1 victory at Wrexham when they take on Hamilton on Sunday (2.00).
“I’m really pleased with how things are going so far, and I feel like I’ve been here for months rather than weeks,” said the 20-year-old.
“The group have been very welcoming to all the new boys, and the trip to Scotland is a great chance for us all to get to know each other that bit better.
“As far as the games are concerned, the main thing is to get fitness and sharpness ahead of the league campaign, but if you can get results as well, that’s all to the good, and we’ll be trying to win against both Hamilton and Dunfermline (on Tuesday).”
On his own approach, the Birmingham-born Southampton academy product explained: “I try to break up opposition moves, get on the ball and influence what’s going on in the middle of the pitch as much as possible.”
Nineteen-year-old former Sheffield United striker Nathan Thomas was handed a trial appearance as a mainly young Town side went down 2-0 in last night’s friendly at Sheffield FC.
Jamie McCombe, Nathan Clarke, Alan Lee and Robbie Simpson were the experienced players in action at the Coach and Horses ground.
