DEFENDER Nathan Ake believes Huddersfield Town will “make everything difficult” for Cherries when the teams lock horns at Vitality Stadium.

David Wagner’s side are 10th in the table with 15 points from their opening 11 games.

The Terriers have made more tackles than any other top-flight club this season and have recorded five clean sheets.

And Ake insisted the Yorkshire outfit’s work rate had been a huge factor in their impressive start to the campaign.

The 22-year-old told the Daily Echo: “Huddersfield are doing really well. I think you can see they work really hard.

“They have some really good players and make everything difficult.

“Because they have just come up, you don’t expect teams to be up there straight away.

“It shows how much they can do and how good they are – it will be a tough test.”

Ake returned to the Cherries fold following two starts for the Netherlands during the international break.

The former Chelsea man featured for 90 minutes of the 1-0 win against Scotland at Pittodrie.

He also played the full game in the 3-0 win over Romania, in which Dick Advocaat took charge for the final time.
