Defender desperate to pick up three points

Anthony Gerrard believes the Terriers have the ability to earn three points against his former club Cardiff City this Saturday.

The 27 year-old made over 70 appearances for the Bluebirds before joining Town in the summer.

“It is just another game; I am not bothered about it being Cardiff,” Gerrard told “First and foremost we have to win the game because of the situation that we find ourselves in. The whole emotional side of things won’t affect me, it is just another game. 

“I have moved on from my time at Cardiff,” he continued. “I have no regrets about leaving, it is what it is. They have been very consistent this season while other teams have faltered behind them. They have been very workman like and thorough - and that is why they are at the top of the league. 

“They are regimented and well drilled. They are an organised outfit and have players who fit their structure well. The table doesn’t lie, but they are beatable. It is about what we can do on Saturday and what we can bring to the table, which will determine how many points we earn.”

Following impressive performances against Leicester and Palace during Mark Lillis’ first two games in caretaker charge, the Terriers faltered at Derby last time out. 

“A bit of fatigue crept in against Derby, but we had put a lot of effort into the games against Palace and Leicester. That isn’t an excuse, but I think if the fans evaluate our past three games they will see how hard we have worked.

“The fans have their opinions and they have the right to voice them because they spend their money with the Club. We are doing our best to perform week in week out to the best of our ability.”

To finish, the defender echoed Mark Lillis’ earlier comments by saying that he isn’t letting the managerial search affect his game.  

“I just get on with things; I have just cracked on with my job,” he told “I don’t get paid to worry about what the higher powers are doing. I get paid to pull the Huddersfield Town shirt on and do my best for the football club. 

“I take every day as it comes and Mark Lillis and Steve Eyre have been doing a great job. Until we get told otherwise we need to abide by their rules and do as they say.”
