The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Will Gar­nett

THE DEPTH of the Hud­der­s­field Town squad is the se­cret be­hind the club’s re­cent suc­cess, ac­cord­ing to de­fender Michael He­fele.

The 26-year-old believes that com­pe­ti­tion for places in David Wagner’s start­ing line-up keeps ev­ery­one on their toes and en­sures play­ers give their all at ev­ery train­ing ses­sion.

The Ger­man signed for the Cham­pi­onship club from SG Dy­namo Dres­den and has en­joyed a blos­som­ing re­la­tion­ship with the Hud­der­s­field fans.

“We have a very good squad, it’s deep from num­ber 1 to 45,” he said. “All the play­ers are very good and we al­ways have very in­tense train­ing so you can never lay back and do noth­ing.

“You al­ways have to per­form 100 per cent and I think that’s the rea­son why we’re do­ing well in the ta­ble.

“It’s so good when you are on the pitch and you feel the emo­tions from the fans.

“When you need them, like against Bris­tol we needed some en­ergy from the stands – they gave it to us.”

IN­TENSE: Michael He­fele
