Danny Cowley claims Huddersfield signifies the”perfect opportunity” for his next step in management and insists the”simple” option will have been to stay at Lincoln.

Cowley will bid to arrest the bad form, with all the Terriers second of Huddersfield from bottom in the league and led Lincoln to two promotions in the previous few years.
“You have a look at the present status in the Championship and respect it has been a really difficult time for the football club but actually excites me because we like a battle,” said Cowley.
“We always believed that the next move would have to be the perfect chance and we view this as being the perfect prospect. We believe we can add value here.
“The chance to function as managers as opposed to head trainer is essential to us because that’s how we’ve always worked. It is always about building.”
Huddersfield, who have been relegated from the Premier League last year, haven’t won in 17 matches in all competitions and have been conquered by Lincoln at Carabao Cup a month.
The chance turned down concerning the managerial vacancy but afterwards took the job due to the assurance the brothers would have a hands on part in shaping the club’s development.
“I consider the task in front of us and can not wait to start,” Cowley additional.
“We want to be contested. I want to live everyday life. The option could have been to stay a club, at Lincoln.
“It’d have been a whole lot simpler to remain but we are not interested in easy decisions. We want to test ourselves.”
Cowley will begin his Huddersfield tenure against Sheffield Wednesday, who will possess Gary Monk from the dugout for the first time, even on Sunday – live on Sky Sports.
“The short-term objectives are to discover a way to play winning football but for us it’s got to be a long-term undertaking,” Cowley said.
“Winning on Saturday is not sufficient for me. It is all about winning winning. We are clear about the vision to Huddersfield Town. We know where we would like to go.”
Cowley added that he and his brother come as a pair, having worked together earlier Lincoln at Concord and Braintree.
“We’re utilized to working together,” he said. “We have lived our lives in each others’ pockets. We are personalities but are quite self explanatory about the procedures. Above all we have trust.”
