Fraizer Campbell still has play-off ambitions despite Huddersfield’s declining form.
The Terriers currently sit eighth in the standings, but have recently encountered a number of stumbling blocks. They have won one of their last five games and lost points late in the game against Peterborough, Cardiff and QPR.
They were also comfortably beaten against Middlesbrough last week and are hopeful that a result against Barnsley will revive their form.
Talk to media Ahead of the game against Barnsley, Campbell spoke about the importance of a result against their rivals that could welcome a turning point in their season. : “The teams are so close the minute it’s crazy.
“We have to prepare well, prepare as we would for any other game, and I hope we can come away with a better result than on Saturday.
“This league, as has been shown this season and every other season before, there aren’t any games where you think ‘yes we will win in this one today’.
A win at Barnsley could be the tonic needed for Carlos Corberan’s side to climb into the top six, which Campbell believes is a possibility: “The dream is to make the playoffs and hopefully finish. in the Premier League.
“You always have that chance. We’ve been flirting with the playoffs all season and it’s coming to Christmas and if you’re still in and around that position you think you have a good chance.
“The results haven’t been great lately, but I hope it’s only a little hollow and we can pick it up on Saturday and continue a bit and keep our position in the standings.”
A win for Huddersfield Town will keep them in the race for the top six, but they will need results to continue their journey on Saturday if they narrow the gap by five points with Coventry City in sixth.
Huddersfield has surprised many this season and has really shown that Corberan’s philosophy is fully embedded in their players.
However, their recent form shows a number of weaknesses that need to be addressed by Corberan and the players. They struggled to find the balance between defense and offense and correction that will improve results.
It’s a good season for teams on the outskirts of the top six to try their luck and Huddersfield has shown they have the credentials to do it this year.
