DAVID WAGNER wants more of the same when Huddersfield Town face Bristol City in their latest Championship clash.
The head coach is targeting a first home win in his fourth game at the helm, and says it will be achieved through sheer hard work.
“We have brought that to the last three games, and at Birmingham (where Town were 2-0 victors last Saturday) we got our reward,” he said.
“Sometimes you win lucky, and as a coach I will take those wins, but more often than not, it is because you work hard.
“I want the players to do what they have done in each of the last three games, but maybe a little bit better!”
While Joel Lynch has been back in training for more than a week after a hamstring problem, Wagner suggested he is not quite sharp enough for first-team action.
And he confirmed on-loan Bournemouth centre-back Elliott Ward, back at Town after injury, is not in his plans for the Bristol game.
“Lynchy needs a little bit of time, and Elliott has been in the gym after a hard session out I the grass as he works to develop his fitness,” added Wagner.
“But there is no panic, because I am pleased with what I have got from Mark Hudson and Martin Cranie, while Murray Wallace has done well in training.”
Wagner has done his homework on Bristol City but said his main concern is in the way his own side perform in the first of two big home games in four days.
