Favourites to become new Huddersfield Town manager as club sacks their boss

We take a look at the favourites to become new Huddersfield Town manager as the club sacks their manager after Tuesday’s match.

The Terriers’ losing run continued as their attempts at a comeback at home to Wigan were stopped with a late winner from Callum Lang.

Danny Schofield’s side had to fight back from a goal behind after Luke Mbete gave away a penalty midway through the first half in his first ever senior league appearance, with Will Keane scoring from the spot.

Tom Lees netted in the 76th minute after Huddersfield threw more and more men forward to try and get back into the game, however Lang caught goalkeeper Lee Nicholls out for a rare positional error, poking home the deciding goal.


Schofield relieved of his duties as Head Coach

– Club Statement from Huddersfield Town
– Contract of Head Coach Danny Schofield has been ended
– Narcís Pèlach and Paul Harsley to lead team vs Cardiff City

Danny Schofield has today been relieved of his duties as Head Coach of Huddersfield Town.

The decision was made after Tuesday evening’s Sky Bet Championship defeat at home to Wigan Athletic, which took our competitive record during Danny’s time as permanent Head Coach to one win and one draw in nine competitive matches.

Narcís Pèlach and Paul Harsley will take temporary charge and lead the team into Saturday’s league game at home to Cardiff City.

Everyone at the Club would like to thank Danny for his hard work and dedication and wishes him the very best for the future.


Danny Schofield said after the game: “I know this job comes with a lot of pressure. When you’re not winning games, when you’re losing games, the pressure’s mounting, and I take full responsibility for that. You do actually feel a lot of pressure in this job, but you have to try and control that pressure. My focus is just on what I can control, seeing where we can improve all the time.

“The players have again given me everything out there on the pitch and the result’s obviously not what we were looking for. We placed a lot of importance on this game, probably more than the others, because of the run of results we’ve had. It’s a game we prepared really hard for, preparing to beat this team, which we felt we could do. But the result in the end showed that we didn’t.”

As the favourites to become new Huddersfield Town manager emerges after the club sacks their boss Danny Schofield, fans gave their thoughts…

@shelchenko: Thank you for your hard work and efforts Danny, shame it wasn’t to be. Always a terrier 👏

@jaisinghhhh: Had to happen. Best of luck Danny.

@IrelandTerriers: Will always be highly regarded at the club for everything he’s done as both player and coach (prior to this season). Was thrown under the bus really with Carlos’ resignation into a role he was never ready for. One of the good guys, but it’s the right decision #htafc

@Mini_HTFC: Chucked in at the deep end but was not up to it unfortunately, Hoyles lost this man his job at a club he loves

@htafcConnor: Gotta feel for Danny, chucked in at the deep end with no experience whatsoever!

@_MeIodicBIue: i wish that it worked out for him but this was the right call unfortunately probably made a bit too late now tho

@Htfckrakowski: Thank you Danny, it’s sad it didn’t work out but it was the right time to go. Best of luck in the future 👍

@DHey93: Poor choice in first place, tarnished his playing career with negative as a manger. All the best Danny. Time to move on positively now #htafc

@RossTC21: Thank Christ for that. So poor from the club to chuck him in the deep end like that. Make the next appointment a wise one!!

@gstrosss: At least the crowds might be back for Saturday now. Shame that this didn’t work, but a very strange decision after a rotten summer for the club. It’ll be just our luck that he’ll probably go on to hit the big time with another team. Good luck DS.

@dcbain21: Dean Hoyle should follow him out of the door for what he’s done to him!

@OllieDowding86: Thrown in the deep end by the club unfortunately. We have a team that has potential if the right man if given the job. Experience needed to get us moving in the right direction. #UTT

@teaton73: Serious lump on Liam Manning being next, such a town move to go get him

@Mrpauldawson: The club was thrown into chaos when Carlos walked out. DS was dealt a difficult hand trying to sort things out and had very little luck on the field. However, last night the team again looked disjointed and didn’t seem to know what the game plan was. That couldn’t continue.

@freddiec1994: Glad this was done before his legacy as a player was tarnished. Hung out to dry by the board and put in an impossible position. A very sad situation. The next appointment is the most important one we’ve had since Jacko came in 2003 for the long-term future of the club. #htafc

@_RickJO: Absolutely thrown in the deep end here, a cheap option to replace a good manager I’m guessing because “he knew the system”, best players leave and wonder what’s going on. Just another example of shite management at the top of clubs #htfc

@Kazzhtafc: Glad he’s not the head coach but the club has been shocking. Put him in the deep end with zero experience or anything. Clearly wasn’t going to work and if he doesn’t get a role within the club then they haven’t treated him fairly at all. Now PLEASE get someone in who’s decent.

@HTAFC_Max: No job in the b team? Shame on you Hoyle, he loved the club and you threw him in the deep end

@_YorkshireLass_: I hope he’s been given a job within the club wasn’t his fault he was thrown in at the deep end. Good Luck Danny! Now spend some money and stop doing everything on the cheap!

@olifisher: Just wasn’t to be for Danny. We all wanted him to succeed, but he was thrown into a very difficult job that he probably wasn’t ready for by his own admission. He ran out of time, and football doesn’t wait around for romance. Always a Terrier though 💙🤍

@lewisroche2002: Shouldn’t have been appointed in the first place, hopefully he stays on as part of coaching staff, dosent deserve to be unemployed.

@BradBarbz: Should’ve happened sooner but main things is it’s done wish him all the best
