Wagner on defensive versatility

David Wagner is pleased with the versatility his Huddersfield Town squad have shown in pre-season, with his unit able to play as both a four and a five.

When asked what we can read in to his changing of formations during the pre-season, Wagner said:


“You can read that we are able to do both in a good way, like we have done last season. This is how we will continue.

“We can vary it and we can react to different oppositions if necessary.

“The players have done it in the past and they have done it in a good manner as well.”
