Defender looks ahead to Amex trip

Town defender Anthony Gerrard has been delighted with the team’s performances of late and knows the results will come if they can be maintained.

The Terriers have won three of their last five games and were very unlucky to lose narrowly to Ipswich and Reading respectively. 

The defender has been in good form since returning to the side and is enjoying his football.

He said: “We have been outstanding in the last four or five games, knocking the ball around well and dominating teams.

“We were by far the better team in the Reading game and it was a real smash and grab by them. We had something like 27 shots, but just couldn’t find a way through; their goal lived a charmed life. That is what football is like though, and we just need to keep producing the type of performances that we have and the results will come. 

“The fans don’t want to watch rubbish football when they have spent their hard earned money.

“The type of football in which teams get it at the back and ‘shell’ it forward is becoming extinct. However, there are still teams and managers who will turn to that if things are going pear-shaped. Football is a diverse game, which is what makes it so appealing. If it was all one style then it would be extremely boring to watch.”

With Joel Lynch suspended and Peter Clarke out injured, Gerrard will, in all likelihood, be Town’s senior defender on Saturday.

“I like to dictate to people and enjoy that responsibility,” he said. “Depending upon who the Manager picks or what formation he chooses to play, it is likely that I will be the most senior defender. It is my job to look after the young lads because it could get a little bit hairy at times. It isn’t just down to me, as a collective we need to be responsible and help them out.”
