Huddersfield Town striker Martin Paterson hints at possible departure

The Northern Ireland frontman has suggested his future might lie away from the John Smith's Stadium

 

Martin Paterson hinted his future may lie away from Huddersfield Town after he and Ollie Norwood returned from international duty to join in preparations for the trip to Doncaster.

Lamenting a miss during the goalless draw in Cyprus, when his early header was saved by keeper Antonis Georgallides, the striker said: “I know I need to take those type of chances.

“Hopefully I will get more football next season – whichever club I am at – and be sharper.”

The 26-year-old arrived from Burnley on a two-year deal during the close-season.

But he has had to be satisfied with 17 starts, seven appearances from the bench, and six goals.

Paterson, who won his 22nd cap in Nicosia, where he played the first 45 minutes, has also netted twice for Northern Ireland this term.

Midfielder Norwood earned his 15th cap, featuring for 74 minutes of the friendly.

Northern Ireland, who had Gareth McAuley sent off with a quarter of an hour to go, have post-season matches in Uruguay and Chile before embarking on their 2016 European Championship qualifying campaign.

Doncaster had two men, midfielder Dean Furman and on-loan Tottenham defender Bongani Khumalo, on duty for South Africa as they were beaten 5-0 by Brazil in Johannesburg.
