Jack Hunt says Sheffield Wednesday must be wary of the threat posed by Huddersfield Town tomorrow as the Terriers look to build on the rise in form under boss David Wagner.
The German had only just taken over when the sides met at Hillsborough in November, but since then, Huddersfield moved away from the relegation zone and a few more points on the board should see them safe.
A warning of their collective abilities came in a 4-1 hammering of rivals Leeds United before the international break and Hunt, who began his career with Town, says this trip to West Yorkshire will be no easy task.
“They utilise the ball very well, get a lot of passes in, but we’ve got to go there and adapt to their style of play but obviously we have to play our own game and hopefully that may be enough,” said Hunt.
“They are coming together really well.
“Obviously it is my old team so I keep a good eye on their results and you’d have thought next season you’d see even more of a push from them because the manager will have had a full pre-season to get his thoughts across.
“Credit to the players, they seem to have taken to it very quickly and you’ve seen it on the pitch.”
Hunt also says there is a freshness about Wednesday going into this latest test, the last of eight ties between them and Yorkshire sides, after a relaxed international break.
He added: “We had two good results away at Forest and at home to Charlton but it was nice to recharge the batteries and get ready to go for the last eight games. You can enjoy the break a little bit more, if you go in with a few bad results you might think you have to work harder over the international break so for us, we got to get the feet up and recharge the batteries.”
