Tommy Smith: Huddersfield Town happy to be labelled as underdogs

"Ok with young players, normally they are not so consistent, but when you have a good mixture, that's the best you can have because older, experienced players can be professional and really help them and they can see how young players can make a difference".

Hudson, who is studying for his UEFA A coaching license, will join Wagner in the dug-out at Selhurst Park.

Huddersfield finished fifth in the Championship but progressed through the playoffs to reach the top flight and Wagner insists he is in no hurry to change tactics this season.

Twenty-one of those starts, along with five substitute appearances, came in last season's fairytale promotion.

His exact role has yet to be defined but, in the interim, he will support the preparations and training for Town's Premier League debut in 2017/18 alongside Wagner and the technical staff.

Part of a club statement read: "This transition was envisaged when Mark signed a new three-year contract at the Club in April 2016".

Back in April of past year, Hudson had already joined the backroom staff as a player-coach and now the move will mean he can continue with his studies on his UEFA A Licence course.

"Make no mistake; Mark made a huge contribution to the success this club enjoyed in 2016/17, both through his performances on the field and his influence off it".

Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer has admitted that his side will be aiming for mid-table security ahead of the new Premier League season.

Town are among a number of clubs touted to be playing Championship football next term included fellow promotion-winners Brighton and Hove Albion, Burnley and Swansea City but the right-back believes the current flawless squad harmony gives them an upper edge.
