The Terriers boss has confirmed that he has a complete squad at his disposal without the harm issues, before the struggle amongst the team. However to claim a win because he tries to alter Huddersfield’s fortunes and also in possession of just 1 stage, the changes could ring.
Under fresh leadership are competitions Wednesday, who journey into the Kirklees Stadium for their first game under new boss Garry Monk. Headed by caretaker director Lee Bullen because the controversial departure of Steve Bruce, Wednesday sit mid-table with played with matches.

Caretaker Wednesday manager Lee Bullen had steered the team to 11th after six matches, overseeing league wins over Luton, Barnsley and Reading, though QPR were victorious at Hillsborough before the global break.
Huddersfield boss Danny Cowley:”Here is the first stage for individuals, in company I believe they talk about 30-60-90-day phases, in soccer you do not always get as long, so perhaps we’re speaking 15, 30 and 45-days, but certainly in this first process we need to audit the Club and see what’s good. No doubt we are going to run with these and there is some processes already in place , we may even run with the ones due to the timeframe we are working inside.
“Surely, we’ll look at the areas we can effect and in which we can get some quick drops and at which we believe we can have the maximum impact. We are going to look to implement those and we’ll simply make change. We’ll be looking to see where we can find those wins.”
Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk: There’s not been a very long time to prepare for this game. I’m a new boss coming in and also I feel the secret isn’t to over-bear the gamers with too much stuff that I want to do, but enough they can take the notions we’re going to try and work on and place them onto the pitch.
“Games come thick and fast and we are likely to be going into a busy period, so we’ll try and operate in between that to attempt to make that clearer and better. It is quite a exceptional situation this weekend but I have enjoyed it.”
It was the U-turn from his brother Nicky and Danny Cowley. Just over a week later after turning down the chance to manage Huddersfield, he will be sat in the dugout at the John Smith’s Arena on Sunday as his side takes on Sheffield Wednesday, live on Sky Sports Football.
Together with his brother and helper Nicky, have taken the jump from Lincoln – who are near the top of League 1 – to Huddersfield, currently with 1 league win in 2019 and occupying spot in the Championship.
Cowley may have heeded recent lessons when creating up the step into the Championship from managers who have fought. Paul Hurst along with Nathan Jones are two who have lately laboured after departing League One clubs, however the 40-year-old thinks he has what it takes to flip the position around. However, it will not be a fast fix.
“This is a mentality thing,” he said. “We have spoken to lots of people around the team who think they are just one win from changing that, but I am not so sure.”
In all competitions, Huddersfield are winless in two matches from Sheffield Wednesday (W0 D4 L5).
Sheffield Wednesday haven’t conceded one goal in any of their last seven games at the John Smith’s Stadium against Huddersfield (W4 D3 L0).
Huddersfield have failed to score more than once in every one of their last 29 home games in all competitions – should they fail to do so against Sheffield Wednesday, it might be a record amount of consecutive games by means of a Football League Club in all competitions, with Blackpool also going 29 games involving December 2013 and also February 2015.
Sheffield Wednesday haven’t dropped three consecutive away league matches since October 2017.
Since their 1-0 win over Wolves at the John Smith’s Arena in February, Huddersfield haven’t led to get one minute in some of their seven home league games (W0 D1 L6).
Sheffield Wednesday striker Steven Fletcher has not scored in three consecutive league games since a streak of five between May and September 2012 for sailors and Sunderland.
Two new managers at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday. What a minute this will be for his brother Nicky along with Danny Cowley, handling a negative which were at the Premier League last season, having been teachers and supervisors that are part-time just a couple of decades ago.
In the opposite dugout would be Garry Monk, who, apart from maybe his time in Middlesbrough, has left every club he’s been at in a better position than where it was found by him. I think he will be a good match at Sheffield Wednesday and he’ll start with a triumph. Just!
David Prutton forecasts: 1-2 (9/1 with Sky Bet)
