Huddersfield Town could well have a new face in their starting side against Doncaster this afternoon – but manager Mark Robins has told fans to expect the same style of football.

Robins is determined to stick to his passing principles, and says new loan signing Jazz Richards will fit into his preferred system perfectly.

“At Swansea, he’s been brought up playing football the way I like it to be played, and he’s featured in both the Premier and Europa Leagues,” said Robins of the Welsh international right-back.

“He’s also had Championship experience on loan at Crystal Palace last season, and he’s hungry to get started straight away.

“He’s a versatile asset because he can play either side and even in midfield, although I don’t envisage him doing that here.

“But he’s come to play matches, we want him to play matches, and he will get that opportunity. It’s up to him to stake his claim for a regular place.”

The international break means Robins, whose side are 12th, have had to wait a fortnight to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat at Barnsley.

 

“We’ve analysed that match, but we haven’t festered over it,” he added. “Basically Barnsley won because they started the match better than we did.

“You have to be at it for the full 90 minutes every time. We have another derby coming up and we know Doncaster are a decent side who will be up for it. We have to deal with that.

 

“But our style of play won’t alter. There is still a lot of work to do. The players know that and there may be some who fall by the wayside. It’s evolution, not revolution, and we will get there.

“We’ve tried to make the most of the two weeks without a game, and we’ve been able to run tests which show that fitness wise, the players are moving forward as they should be.

“But I think we’re all looking forward to getting back into action, especially with another derby match in front of a big crowd.”
