Huddersfield Town’s problems this season have all been going forward. Defensively, the Terriers have remained relatively solid. However, their return of fifteen Premier League goals so far this season is the main reason they’re currently anchored to the bottom of the table and looking certain to go down.
Their top scorer so far this season is centre-back Zanka, with just three goals. Strikers Steve Mounie, Laurent Depoitre, Karlan Grant and Adama Diakhaby have mustered just three league strikes between them.

Not only is this not good enough for the top flight, none of these forwards look like they’d shine in the Championship either. Jan Siewert has to find a way to make sure that his side’s goalscoring woes don’t continue to haunt them next season in the second tier.
One player who could help them out in this regard is Rekeil Pyke. The 21-year-old forward is currently on loan with League One side Rochdale, and is impressing at Spotland Stadium.
Siewert himself has taken note of the youngster’s progress – as the Terriers’ academy manager Leigh Bromby told The Examiner, “Jan came to watch another one of our players that is doing really well, Rekeil Pyke, who’s on loan with Rochdale…things like that are important for the succession of our young players.”
Pyke hasn’t been hugely prolific this season, but he has managed to rack up five goals and four assists for the Dale, as per Transfermarkt’s stats. He has also demonstrated his versatility by playing all across the front line.
Siewert should certainly be willing to give Pyke a chance at the John Smith’s Stadium. The Huddersfield academy graduate is ready to make the step up to the Yorkshire club’s first team and could play a big role for them in the Championship next season, especially in the absence of any other reliable goalscorers.
