If thinking back to the devastation of missing out on the Premier League courtesy of Levi Colwill‘s own goal against Nottingham Forest in the Championship playoff final back in May is not bad enough for Huddersfield fans, preparation for the upcoming season has not been too promising either.
Last season’s success largely came down to the wonders worked by Carlos Corberan in the dugout, but the Spaniard shocked many by resigning from his post with the Terriers on Thursday.
Danny Schofield has been promoted from the B team having previously played for the club and coached in various capacities.
The 42-year-old certainly has big shoes to fill in the footsteps of Corberan, after the former Leeds United coach exceeded expectations by some distance to reach the playoff final in the 2021-22 campaign.
Schofield will run the rule over his squad for the first time when they take to the field against Morecambe on Tuesday afternoon, which will largely be a fitness test for much of the players following their late return to pre-season compared to much of the division, due to their playoff exploits late into May.
With pre-season preparations up in the air following Corberan’s sudden departure on Thursday, Schofield must react quickly to find out his preferred setup and first-choice starting 11.
Colwill and Danel Sinani are amongst those to have departed the club during the summer following the end of their loan spells, whilst the likes of Harry Toffolo and Lewis O’Brien have been linked with moves away from the Yorkshire outfit.
The duo remain at the club for the time being however and should play a part on Tuesday, along with summer arrivals Connor Mahoney, David Kasumu and Will Boyle.
As for the visitors, summer recruits Connor Ripley, Farrend Rawson, Jake Taylor, Caleb Watts, Donald Love and Max Melbourne all played a part on Saturday as they begin to gel with their new teammates.
Ten substitutions were made throughout that game as Adams continues to share the minutes around his squad in their effort to build fitness, and the Scotsman has admitted that he will continue to do so until nearer the opening of the campaign, when he will settle on a first-choice lineup.
Last season’s top goalscorer of 23 League One goals – Stockton – will be at the centre of everything productive for Morecambe in the final third as he looks to add to his opening goal of pre-season at the weekend.
