Huddersfield Town fans would ideally like a couple of additions to the squad before tonight’s 11pm transfer deadline.
Head coach David Wagner has spelled out the club will only do business if the right players become available at the right price who can be long-term assets.
Wolves’ winger Rajiv van La Parra remains linked with a possible move to the John Smith’s Stadium, along with Aston Villa defender Kevin Toner who has been included as trialist in the club's Under 21 Development side today at Sheffield United.
Supporters have been giving their views on the Examiner website and Huddersfield Town Facebook page.
Tony, from Salendine Nook, feels the spine of Town’s team needs strengthening – “we missed Hudson (against Cardiff)” he said – while Terry of Lincoln and Pontefract-based Mark Cunningham would like to see a striker added to the books.
TJ from Horbury feels reinforcements are urgently needed at the back, and Tony from Barnsley agrees the squad looks “threadbare” with injuries and suspensions kicking in.
Nick of Bradford believes a striker and left-back are priority.
Following the 3-2 home defeat to Cardiff City, Ian from Nottinghamshire messaged: “Another match where we couldn’t impose our game on a well-organised team who denied us space.
“Need to move the ball forward more quickly, fight the battles in their half, not our own, and take more of the few chances created.”
Derek, from the Colne Valley, reflected: “This was not a pretty picture to watch – some of the defending was appalling and we didn’t have a leader on the pitch.
“The need for a commanding centre-back with experience was evident and has been for some time.
“We attack really well with Bunn and Wells causing problems, but it’s no good leaking goals and having to score three or more to win the game.”
Leonard, in Newsome, felt Town were left wanting in a match he described as a “reality check”.
He added: “A look at the remaining fixtures and there are many more ‘Cardiff type’ matches to come. It could still be along hard run in.”
Roger, from Menston, reckoned Joel Lynch, Jed Steer and Nahki Wells were the exceptions in a disappointing team display.
“Showed that a few injuries and two suspensions are more than we can cope with, and those below us got points, so we are not safe whatever the overall good feeling about Town right now.”
Big Dan, from Birkby, believes Town’s resources looked stretched against Cardiff but feels David Wagner is the right man to make signings.
“He now getting the best out of what we’ve got, but in my opinion it just isn’t quite good enough and a striker and a centre back are a must,” he said.
“If you can’t defend and can’t put away chances, then the law of averages says you are going to lose more than you win – which is Town’s case at the moment.
“In Wagner we trust.”
