Skipper backed to shine

Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner has backed the new club captain Tommy Smith to excel in the role.

As the Terriers prepare for their opening Premier League game this weekend at Crystal Palace the last minute touches to their preparation has been on-going.

Former skipper Mark Hudson has retired from the club's playing staff and moved onto the coaching side of things and 25-year-old Smith has taken his place.

“Tommy has all the right skills needed to be a good captain – he is reliable, open-minded, committed and likes to challenge not only himself but the group as well,” Wagner told the Examiner.

“He feels a responsibility for all the players in our dressing room and for the club, and that’s exactly what we need from him.

“As everyone knows, Tommy did a really good job as captain last season, when he was called upon as vice captain to Mark Hudson, and he has all the right qualities to do well again."
