Huddersfield Town 's pre-season training camp in Austria will be nothing like the bonding trip to Sweden, according to skipper Mark Hudson.
Far from putting up their own tents and taking to canoes, this time the focus is all on the football.
With the Championship kick off two weeks' away, players are building up to playing the full 90 minutes - with the final quarter of an hour presenting the biggest challenge.
Most played 45 minutes in the friendly defeat to Liverpool , but Hudson believes that is about to change in the games against Werder Bremen and FC Ingolstadt.
“The Austria trip gives us a chance to be on the pitch a lot more,” said Hudson.
“There is no travelling, we are based on site. We also have the two tough games.
“I’d imagine a few will get a full 90 minutes out there, which is key as when the real fatigue sets in with 15 minutes to go we have to focus hard.
“Another big test and then a week closer to the season. We have a tough start but you have to play every team twice in the season so it is nothing to worry about. We are looking forward to starting and we will be ready for it.”
The summer has brought 12 senior signings, and a host of new faces in the dressing room.
But Hudson insists the early transfer business has given the team a head start.
He added: “The chairman and the boss getting the players in so early has been a big thing.
“It has given us that time to gel on the pitch and off the pitch before the season starts.
“We are learning about each other, what our respective strengths and weaknesses are, and then we can build on those.”
