There’s a growing lobby for Huddersfield Town to sign a big hold-up frontman in the January transfer window.

Supporters remember how well Grant Holt did in his loan spell under previous manager Chris Powell, and they feel a similar influence is needed now to help Town pull clear of trouble in the Skybet Championship.

The subject is being debated on the Examiner’s Huddersfield Town Facebook page , so why not join in.

Peter Ferris reckons Town could do worse than bring Grant Holt back from Wigan Athletic when his loan to Wolves expires on January 2 (boss David Wagner already has midfielder Emyr Huws on loan from the Lancashire club).

“Bring back Grant Holt,” said Peter.

“Wigan want rid and we’ve got some money free for wages.

“He can hold up the ball, bring others into play and be an all round nuisance!!!”

Chris Gez Lowther agrees a frontman would be a boon.

“Need a big man to hold the ball up or flick the ball on for Nahki Wells,” he said.

“James Hanson (at Bradford) will be mentioned again as they (him and Wells) played so well together – Matt Smith, at Fulham, is another good one.

“But would be looking at defence first, though.”

Paul Sykes believes a striker who gets in the box and shoots is top priority, and Jordan Brown added: “One who knows where the net is.”

Fan Darren Wormald joined the calls for a goalscorer, and a talented central defender as well.

“Firepower needed big time,” he said.

“Depends on cash reserves, but at this level one in three chances need converting, not one in 12.”

On the performance at Brentford, Wormald added: “David (Wagner) is just finding out what we as fans have seen for a while.

“A lot of these players are one in four performers and prone to go missing for long periods in games.

“The core of the team is very short, and not surprising considering all the (top) players in this area, rightly or wrongly, have been sold.

“After seven games, effectively our new coach has completed a pre-season and will have a picture of who can be relied on to do a job.

“Come January, as a fan, I expect at least a striker of quality to arrive and, if Elliott Ward is not our solution, a quality centre back too.”
