Huddersfield boss Siewert ready to continue selection gamble

Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert is ready to continue with his selection gambles after their win over Wolves.

Striker Karlan Grant and defender Demeaco Duhaney were handed their full debuts and centre-half Jon Gorenc Stankovic made his second league start of the season in a deep-lying midfield role.

"Maybe each manager has a different view on his players," said Siewert, whose first win in his fifth game in charge on Tuesday night was secured by Steve Mounie's stoppage-time goal.

"It's not easy when you come into a club and have no pre-season so I have to get to know them and to learn about them personally, as individuals, but also about their performance.

"Maybe there are some things which we haven't seen before, but I'd say this is normal.

"When I don't pick a player there is a reason for it. I'm paid for making decisions."
