Huddersfield Town manager Neil Warnock insists the Terriers' off-field problems will have no impact on his players as they prepare to face Norwich City.

Reports have suggested that the Yorkshire club could go into administration amid takeover interest from two potential investment groups.

Those reports - as well as a transfer embargo received for late submission of accounts - have complicated matters behind the scenes at the club, but 74-year-old Warnock insists the Championship relegation battle is all he's focused on.

Asked whether the ongoing situation affected him, Warnock said: "Not really, because I am not a permanent manager, really. I have just come to help out.

"I think it's important, even more so, that someone like myself is here to be honest, because I can relate to the fans and keep them informed of what I know.

"I just want to make sure the fans are not disappointed with the effort the players are giving for the last 10 games. That's all I can do."

Warnock was in charge of Queens Park Rangers when they went through off-field difficulty, but the former Middlesbrough and Cardiff boss doesn't believe the situations are comparable.

He continued: "When I was at QPR it was probably slightly different, as we were threatened with [points deductions] and the media went after six points and 12 points and it went to the last game of the season when we found out we had no points deducted.

"I don't think it deters away (the current situation at Huddersfield). The players are putting a shift in and I cannot complain. I just get on with the team and get the best performance from the squad we have. That won't change - I love the club and the fans."

Terriers attacker Danny Ward missed their 1-0 defeat to West Brom on Saturday, but he could be fit to face the Canaries. "Wardy will recover," said Warnock. "He's still not right, but there are 24 hours. He's chomping at the bit."

The veteran manager knows his side will face a stern test from their visitors, who are hoping to break back into the play-off places. 

Speaking about David Wagner's side, Warnock said: "They'll be disappointed if they don't go back into the Premier League really, that's the difference, with the wage bill and the players they've got on the books. They've got some great players.

"I had (Onel) Hernandez with me at Middlesbrough, what a lovely lad he was. They've got experience and quality everywhere."
