Southampton 21/20 to win against Huddersfield Town in Saturday's Premier League clash

David Wagner is happy Huddersfield were able to sign Switzerland international Florent Hadergjonaj on a season-long loan from Ingolstadt

"We wanted to show that we are courageous". It gives us a chance to be successful.

"We know that we will have in front of us a hard game", the Argentinian added.

The trip to West Yorkshire - which follows a draw against Swansea and a victory over West Ham at St Mary's - will be manager Pellegrino's first away game in charge of the club.

Huddersfield made their 11th and 12th signings of the summer this week, but neither Abdelhamid Sabiri nor Florent Hadergjonaj will be considered for Saturday's match.

Wagner wants midfielder Sabiri and right-back Hadergjonaj to do some work in training before coming into contention after the worldwide break.

The Terriers have no new injury concerns, although Jonathan Hogg, Nahki Wells, Martin Cranie and Jon Gorenc Stankovic all remain unavailable.

The two teams have not met in the top-flight since 1971, with Southampton emerging as 2-0 victors on that occasion.

Three games into their first Premier League season, Huddersfield are ahead of Manchester City on goal difference but could be usurped at the top by Manchester United, who are facing Leicester City in the 17:30 BST kick-off.

The speculation has seemingly turned the Southampton defender's head, with Pellegrino keen to not play the centre-back, as he does not appear to be in the right frame of mind for a Premier League fixture.

Watford played with 10 men for three quarters of the game, but held on comfortably for a 0-0 draw at home to Brighton and Hove Albion to maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

Huddersfield's start to the season is the stuff of dreams, they are doing great.
