• Huddersfield Town’s Spanish boss, Carlos Corberan, has admitted that he admired Sierra Leone native Josh Koroma’s willingness to flourish’ since his arrival in the summer.

Koroma, 22, is the club’s top scorer with six goals but was injured in December against Sheffield Wednesday.

Corberan’s side has struggled to cope without their key man, to say the least.

Koroma had just scored five goals in eight games when he suffered his hamstring injury while sliding to reach the ball, and they have struggled to replace those goals.

“I cannot say that he was in my mind for the first eleven when I arrived here. In my mind was to analyse if he would be a player ready to help the team, and I found a player with a lot of demand to improve and a lot of skills that could be adapted very well to play as a left-winger in our team,” Corberan said.

“I think the mission of Koroma was an important mission for us up until his injury as he was performing really well for us.”

He added, “After we lost Koroma, we needed to re-adapt the team.”

The former Leyton Orient attacker is set to return to action in March.
