Injuries making Siewert's task even tougher

14th March 2019, 14:40 by Neil Foster

Manager Jan Siewert feels Huddersfield's clash with West Ham has been made that much tougher by his lengthy injury list.

Town take on Manuel Pellegrini's men knowing that they need all three points to stand any chance of mounting a late-season fight against relegation.

Realistically, they are now playing for pride and know that it will be Championship football for the John Smith’s Stadium faithful next term.

Nevertheless, the West Yorkshire outfit will not give up as they seek to add as many points as possible to their meagre tally of 14.

It will not be easy against a Hammers side sitting ninth in the top-flight standings and capable of matching most teams on their day.

Add to that the fact that Adama Diakhaby, Isaac Mbenza, Terence Kongolo, Jonathan Hogg, Demeaco Duhaney and Danny Williams could all be missing for the trip to the capital and it is no wonder Siewart is wary of the weekend’s encounter.

"Unfortunately there’s many injuries at the moment," he said. "We had 15 healthy players on the training pitch today. We will have a look at the squad in training tomorrow before we choose our team.

"We know that West Ham will be a difficult game but we know the task in front of us. West Ham will be interesting to play against.

"They have certain key players and are very fast. We will have to find solutions against them."
