Huddersfield Town vs Wolves - Huddersfield form ‘hard to accept’ - Schindler

Huddersfield defender Christopher Schindler has admitted the club’s losing run is taking its toll on the players.

The Terriers’ defeat at Newcastle on Saturday was their 20th from 27 Premier League games this season and kept them rooted to the foot of the table, 14 points from safety.

“Your daily life, you just think about it as a supporter and it’s exactly the same for the players,” said Schindler, whose side chase their third win of the season at home to Wolves on Tuesday.

“We’re thinking about this the whole day and at night as well and it’s not a good feeling.

“Every player is the same, it’s not just me. If you’re on a losing streak and you try everything and nothing seems to work, it’s just frustrating.

“Eleven points out of 27 games, it’s just hard to accept.”

Three of those points came at Molineux in November, under David Wagner’s management, but Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo insists his side’s defeat that day will have no bearing on the return fixture.

Jan Siewert is now in charge of Huddersfield and Nuno believes too much has changed to be able to use that game in his analysis and preparation for the match in west Yorkshire.

He told the club’s official website: “It’s a game that is very far away, we don’t take that game as our analysis for tomorrow. Teams have changed, their manager has changed, and they are playing in a different way.

“I remember at that moment they were really aggressive and we were not able to play. Since then I think we’ve improved on our building, the way we try to go out, but it’s not a reference for tomorrow.

“The most relevant are the (recent) previous games and the previous performance. Then you can see the new ideas, the new movements, and you have to try and find solutions based on the last performance of Huddersfield, which is not so far away.”

Joao Moutinho is fit to face Town despite needing stitches after being caught in the face by an elbow from Bournemouth’s Jefferson Lerma on Saturday.

Huddersfield have Tommy Smith suspended but fellow defender Erik Durm is hoping to return from a hip injury.

Alex Pritchard is available after a minor back complaint but Adama Diakhaby (hamstring), Isaac Mbenza (calf), Danny Williams (knee) and Abdelhamid Sabiri (collarbone) are still out.
