Huddersfield Town - fans have last word on possible signings

Responses to the 2-0 Championship setback against Derby County

Town striker Flo Bojaj is popular with fans

Huddersfield Town need a couple of quality additions to become a competitive Championship side.

That’s the view of a number of fans in the wake of the 2-0 defeat at promotion-chasing Derby County, where David Wagner’s side earned plaudits but not points.

Glen, from Wales, said: “We’re okay for a side that’s marginally more costly than a bag of chips.

“What we need is quality. We are not that short, which makes it more annoying for the fans.”

Dave Bottomley wrote: “We just don’t have the ability to be clinical in the final third.

“Our approach play and the way we pass the ball is top class, but we are lacking quality to make the most of the chances.

“Nahki Wells still needs a big Grant Holt-like centre-forward playing alongside to get the best out of him.

“It was a good performance at Derby but we need to take our chances in front of goal.”

Jersey-based Tim was also a fan of Holt, who is currently on loan at Rochdale from Wigan Athletic.

“I’m sure David Wagner is doing a good job but if we lose to Reading, we are in a fight for survival,” he argued.

“Every match now the manager says ‘just not scoring’.

“Since the January window supporters have been saying we need an established striker.

“Remember Grant Holt (above), who saved us from relegation?”

Simon, from Ossett, said: “Dean Whitehead looked back on track and Jamie Paterson played well.

“But there were too many shots from distance which lacked any power.”

John, from Leeds, called it a “predictable” result, explaining: “We need a more ruthless mindset.

“Town will always struggle without an injection of funds to balance the youngsters with seasoned pros.”

Alan, from Mirfield, wanted to see more of Flo Bojaj, who came on as a late substitute.

“Two or three minutes won’t help his confidence - give him a good run and let’s see what he can do,” he urged.
