JUST IN : Huddersfield Town have to deliver on Kevin Nagle promise, Darren Moore reveal

Kevin Nagle, the owner of Huddersfield Town, believes that the club’s future looks bright.
Huddersfield Town has had a poor season so far in the Championship.
The Terriers narrowly averted relegation to League One last season, with Neil Warnock bringing the team to safety following his February appointment, but this season appears to be another battle for survival.

Warnock signed a one-year contract to stay at the John Smith’s Stadium this summer, but despite a promising start to the season, Town decided to replace him with Darren Moore in September.

Moore’s reign has had a difficult start, and the Terriers’ problems continued on Saturday when they drew 1-1 at home to Plymouth Argyle, with Josh Koroma’s 38th-minute equaliser ensuring a point for Town after Morgan Whittaker gave the Pilgrims the lead.

Huddersfield are presently 21st in the table, four points from safety, and will return to action on Saturday when they travel to play Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.
Huddersfield owner Kevin Nagle has described the club’s first half of the season as “unacceptable,” but the American expressed faith that “good times are coming” in a recent social media post.
However, many Terriers fans are becoming increasingly disillusioned with their team’s performances on the pitch, and Nagle

Huddersfield Town must back up bold Kevin Nagle claims
Nagle completed his takeover of Huddersfield in the summer, and he says that he is keen to guide the club back to the Premier League within three years, but it has been a turbulent start to his tenure
After persuading Warnock to commit his future to the club, Nagle did not provide him with backing in the transfer market, bringing in just four new players during the summer window, and the 74-year-old expressed his frustrations at the lack of activity after Nagle took to social media to criticise the performance in the 4-0 home defeat to Norwich City in August.
It had looked as though the Terriers may avoid another relegation fight this season after a good start to the season under Warnock, and the decision to replace him with Moore was surprising.

Moore had led Sheffield Wednesday to promotion from League One last season before departing Hillsborough in the summer, but while the 49-year-old was a longer-term appointment, there were question marks over whether he was an upgrade on Warnock.

Those doubts have increased significantly in recent months, with Moore winning just three of his 21 games in charge in all competitions so far, losing nine and drawing nine, but Nagle insists that Moore is the right man for the job.

“He’s not going anywhere right now. You can keep asking that question [about backing Moore] but I’m going to say right now he’s not going anywhere,” Nagle told the BBC.

“He’s got a job to do and he can do it, and I believe that we’re going to give him the right assets and he can be successful.”

Moore has had a string of injuries recently, with key players such as Jack Rudoni, Danny Ward, and Delano Burgzorg missing time, but his record at the John Smith’s Stadium has been dismal.
This month, the Terriers signed midfielder Alex Matos on loan from Chelsea and striker Bojan Radulovic from HJK Helsinki, as well as recalling defender Brodie Spencer from his loan at Motherwell, and Nagle hopes to add three more players.

With just over two weeks remaining in the January transfer window, and a key double header against relegation rivals Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday following the journey to play Blackburn next weekend, it might be a season-defining moment for Huddersfield.

Nagle must keep his promise to make additional additions this month, and Moore and his players must improve their performances and results to show supporters that good times are on the way; otherwise, unrest surrounding the club will grow.
