We'll Need To Adjust - Cotterill

Steve Cotterill says Bristol City will have to adjust to Huddersfield Town’s new way of playing.

The Terriers appointed David Wagner as their new boss just over a month ago and the German has altered his new side’s play.

Wagner picked up his first win as Hudderfield boss last weekend with a 2-0 win over Birmingham City, and Cotterill expects a tricky encounter tomorrow (3pm).

“Their playing style has changed which is something we’ll have to adjust to,” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“I thought Chris Powell did a good there and the new manager seems to have found his feet.

“Wherever we go on the road we know it’ll be a tough game and it’s a tough game whoever we play in the Championship hence our league position.”

City are currently in 19th place after suffering back-to-back defeats for just the second time this season.

Cotterill’s side travelled North yesterday and will be on the road until after Tuesday night’s match with Derby County.

He said: “We’ll keep trying to do our best, keep our players confident and on the front foot.

“That is difficult sometimes when you’re in the lower reaches because of whether they have the belief to take you forward but that’s some of the trials and tribulations of being a manager.

“I think they’ll both be difficult games but we’ll go up there and we’ll try and play our way in both matches. Hopefully we’ll come back with six points."
