WALLACE ON MIXED EMOTIONS

6 April 2013

Defender delighted with goal, but not the score line

Murray Wallace was delighted to notch his first goal in Town colours, but was disappointed with the final result.

His header, in the second half, regained the lead for the Terriers before Dwight Gayle scored late on for Peterborough.

“To lose the lead in the last few minutes was massively disappointing, but it is still a point and we need to move forward,” he told htafc.com. “We are out of the bottom three which is a positive and we now need to crack on for a big game next weekend.

“We are looking around at how the other teams are getting on, but it is important that our main focus is on ourselves. We need to get back to playing how we can very quickly and the results will follow.”

Murray’s last start for Town was almost a month ago in the FA Cup, but the Scottish U21 international had an inkling that his name would be in the starting XI.

“I had a suspicion that I would be playing because Gezza (Anthony Gerrard) has had a niggling injury since Bolton. He was touch and go and I found out I was starting when I came in today.”

On his performance, he said: “I was disappointed with how I did for their first goal but I felt I made amends by scoring at the other end. I am disappointed with the final score though. Set-pieces are very important and you need your defenders to provide a threat from attacking situations. When we can contribute it is a bonus and I am glad that I have today.

“I hope that my run in the team continues; all I am trying to do is my best. If the Manager decides otherwise he is doing it for the good of the team; it is a squad game and we all want to stay up.”
