Darren Moore is optimistic about a ‘great addition’ to Huddersfield Town’s striking options.

The manager of Huddersfield Town, Darren Moore, has been experimenting with various forward lineups in an attempt to address the team’s scoring issues this season. He is particularly eager to see the return of Danny Ward, who has been sidelined due to an Achilles injury. Ward was a favorite of Moore’s predecessor, Neil Warnock, but hasn’t played since the game against West Bromwich Albion in early September. As a result, Moore has rotated several players in the center-forward position, including Delano Burgzorg, Josh Koroma, Sorba Thomas, Kian Harratt, and Kyle Hudlin, in the last four games.

However, the only goal scored by this group during that time was Burgzorg’s against Ipswich Town, raising concerns about whether the team lacks a proven striker. Moore acknowledged this issue and expressed anticipation for Ward’s return, describing it as a significant addition. He praised the efforts of the players who have filled in during Ward’s absence, with Josh and Delano doing well and contributing goals.


Moore was pleased to have Jonathan Hogg back from a calf injury but still had to deal with the absence of David Kasumu, who has a hamstring injury, and the loss of Josh Ruffels to injury during the recent game. Regarding Ruffels’ injury, Moore mentioned that it has been a recurring issue around his groin area and will be addressed during the two-week break.

Right-back Tom Edwards made his first start since August, and Moore was satisfied with his progress, highlighting his increased playing time and potential threat on the pitch. The team’s only other injured player at the moment is Ollie Turton, who is expected to return from his anterior cruciate ligament injury around the beginning of the new year.
