We will get the latest from Schofield on how he and the players have responded to that defeat and what differences we can expect to see next time out.

Join us as we bring you all the updates, with a rough transcript appearing below as and when it is spoken.08:46Steven ChickenThat's it from Danny SchofieldThanks for joining us.ShareComments08:45Steven ChickenOn centre-backs"I think players like Tom Lees with that experience and the amount of games he's played are really important. I'm sure the other players will gravitate towards him and he'll play a big part."Will Boyle played 90 minutes for the B team after his suspension and will be involved in the squad. He fits the mould of what we want to bring in to improve our environment, he's a leader on the pitch and he always strives to improve."ShareComments08:43Steven ChickenEarly season games"Playing teams early in the season is always difficult from an analysis point of view, because you get changes of playing staff and coaching staff."I always like to focus on what we can do rather than obsess over the opposition. It's important to know their strengths and weaknesses and be prepared around that but I want to concentrate on how we play our football."ShareComments08:41Steven ChickenOn Rarmani Edmonds-Green"He's had an interesting journey. He's got promoted from League Two with Swindon, got promoted from League One with Rotherham, so he's come through the divisions and I like to see those journeys."I know a lot of the coaching staff at Rotherham create a good environment so it's a good place for him to develop and compete."ShareComments08:40Steven ChickenOn Tino Anjorin"He's a very talented player and I know Chelsea hold him in high esteem as well."I think we see him playing through the middle and posing a threat in central areas."The confidence thing always depends on the player and his environment. We're trying to get him to use the ball in attacking areas and drive at the defensive line."Obviously the training methods and sessions are different to what Chelsea are doing as they are between all clubs, but the new players have come in and settled quickly and Tino is one of them."Every player has their unique qualities but he has an attacking quality which stands out."ShareComments08:37Steven ChickenOn Burnley"We weren't there first half but made some changes to tactics and personnel. We're always looking at how we can improve."ShareComments08:36Steven ChickenOn Danny Grant"He's done really well since coming back for pre-season and trained every minute. We'll keep pushing him to develop and improve but he's in and around the training squad. I think he's sensed that he's not far away.

."We'll be thinking about Birmingham first then we'll discuss the starting lineup for the Preston game."ShareComments08:34Steven ChickenReflections on Burnley"I think first half we didn't show ourselves in our best light but second half was better. These players are very professional so we have to reflect then move on quickly to the next game. I think Birmingham will be a different challenge."ShareComments08:33Steven ChickenOn Birmingham"They've had a lot of changes and have a new head coach. There's a transition there with the style of play but they got a good result away at Luton on Saturday."A lot of coaches want to be hard to beat and build on that as a foundation so I'm not surprised by that."ShareComments08:32Steven ChickenOn David Kasumu"He won't be available. He'll miss a few weeks but it's not as bad as we first thought. It's low in his hamstring."It was a big loss for the game and for the next few weeks but it's part of football. We'll support him in his recovery and other players will get opportunities."ShareComments08:31Steven ChickenCorberan to Olympiacos"I don't know a lot about them. I know Carlos likes challenges and we wish him all the best but our focus is Huddersfield Town."ShareComments08:30Steven ChickenOn Michael Hefele's step up as a defensive coach"He's alwas shown a keen eye to get into coaching and he's now the defensive coach throughout the club. He'll be full of energy and will be contributing like Paul."I see coaching as a journey always. I don't think, in my opinion, that you can really go straight from playing to a first team role."ShareComments08:29Steven ChickenNew assistant"Paul's someone I've known for a number of years. We crossed paths coaching in academy football and he's had an interesting journey as a coach. I think he'll bring something different to me and Narcis and we're pleased to have him here. It's always good to have the balance of someone from a different coaching journey. I don't think any coach has all the ideas so someone who challenges in the right way but also buys into what we're doing it valuable."ShareComments08:28Steven ChickenDanny Schofield is hereLet's crack on.ShareCommentsSteven ChickenMorningWe should be joined by Danny Schofield around 8:30am, so stick with us here for all the updates.ShareComments
