David Wagner calls on fans to be the 12th man once again
Huddersfield Town are preparing to host West Ham United this weekend as they look to try and make it an unlikely two wins in the space of seven days.
The Terriers picked up their first three points of the season on Monday as they edged past Fulham at the John Smith’s Stadium, thanks to an own goal from Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
David Wagner’s men were helped over the line by their supporters on Monday night, and during this week’s press conference, the German head coach has called on the fans to make the difference once more, as West Ham come to town:
We have a chance in front of our home crowd and we need our supporters to be on it from the first minute, especially when we know how difficult of a task this is.
Huddersfield will be hoping for better fortunes in their meetings with West Ham this time around after being well-beaten by the East London outfit both home and away last season.
The Hammers make the trip to West Yorkshire tomorrow on the back of a much-needed win over struggling Burnley. Following a run of three defeats in four, Manuel Pellegrini’s side got the result they craved.
This weekend’s clash is set to be a tight one, and it should be a competitive encounter as Huddersfield have impressed on home soil against both Liverpool and Fulham in recent weeks. A Town goal is a rarity, but they don’t concede bucket-loads either.
