Carlos Coberan believes Scott High and Sorba Thomas could play a big part in securing Huddersfield Town’s Championship status.
The Terriers duo have both looked good having come off the bench, despite the side’s overall poor performances against Norwich and Rotherham.
High spent the first half of the season out on loan at Shrewsbury, whilst winger Thomas was a January arrival from non-league Boreham Wood.
Town have been looking for players with their ability having lost key players like Carel Eiting and Josh Koroma to long-term injuries over December and January, but have been cautious not to rush High and Thomas into the first team ahead of time.
Corberan has admitted that his side have had to adapt to those key player absences, saying: “Now the only key is to see who is the best player to replace (Harry) Toffolo, who is the best player to replace (Carel) Eiting, who is the best player to replace anyone, and who arrives to each game in the best condition.
“Now we have Eiting coming back but at the same time we have Scott High who has shown two very good performances from the bench.
“It’s very important for us to have this player and for him to show he is ready to compete and help the team.
“We have in Sorba Thomas another player who was showing in the last two games that he can bring some ideas and some good levels from the bench too.
“So the key for me is to analyse well all the full squad to see how they arrive to this key moment of the year and to watch them and see options they give to the team.
“The number of games we are going to play and the minutes we have in our legs, to have the option to make a change or make an impact on the game from the bench is very important, and to have these players to make an impact on the first eleven too.
“It’s a moment we need to manage very well because for a player it’s never the same to be a starting player as to arrive from the bench.
“Sometimes some type of situations can help the players to compete more at the level they need to compete.”
