Harry Toffolo has revealed the pro-active approach to self-improvement that has seen him work his way up from League Two to become one of the Championship's leading full-backs.

The Huddersfield Town defender is always looking to push himself and coax more out of his game, and his desire to consistently add new facets to his game has him constantly looking at the stats to find new ways to up his game.

Toffolo, considered one of the most-improved full-backs in the EFL in recent years, admits he regularly studies his stats and averages following matches.

Speaking on Town's YouTube Preview Show ahead of the Millwall game, Toffolo said: Im massive on stats - it's the way football is going.

I remember looking at the stats once, and theres no point me comparing myself to Troy Deeney for example, its not my position.

"But you compare yourself to other left-backs in the Championship and the Premier League to see what theyre doing, and even in League One and League Two, because theyre at your heels and want to take your job so youve got to prepare yourself for that.

I look at the interceptions throughout the games and I was at the lower end of the stats and I thought to myself, I want to be in the top two or top three of the stats of every single possible thing I can be at, because I want to be recognised as one of the best left-backs in the league.

So I had to work on different things and it was being more aggressive defensively, and now Ive got my interceptions where Im making consistently over four or five interceptions a game. I still want to improve on that because thats just my character, but before Id be on 1.1 or 1.2 averages.

I knuckled down and thought what can I do to improve my game, the manager wants an aggressive front-foot defender, full-back as well which is harder to play against.

So I thought I had to change my game and Ive been able to do that, and theres other parts of my game Im looking to improve as well and bits I want to keep improving that are up there on the stats.

As players we look at it intensely to be honest. I think the manager looks at the GPS stats and its become second nature to us now. We dont even have to ask now, I think the performance team Callum Walsh, Josh Snowden just send us over the information straight away."

Toffolo has started every single Championship game for Town and has featured in 2,160 out of a possible 2,250 minutes.
