Midfielder talks to following 4-1 defeat

Oscar Gobern told that the Terriers failed to contain a rampant Brighton team and must now pick their heads up ahead of the visit of Middlesbrough on Tuesday.

Speaking about the game, he said: “We started well, dug in and got a foot hold in the game and at 1-1 it could have gone either way. 

“We conceded three goals in five minutes and the score line looks a lot worse than what it should have been. 

“Brighton play good football and from a neutral point of view it will be great to watch. But as an opposition you've got to handle that and stop them from playing the football they do. It's up to the lads on the pitch to contain them, it's our responsibility, but we didn't do that. 

“We were pretty solid up until the second goal; the game was there for the taking, but it didn't happen for us today. We took up some good positions and had chances, but the final bit let us down today.”

Town now face back to back home games against Middlesbrough and Charlton respectively.  

“We've got to be determined now; the lads are down but we've got to pick our heads up ready for Tuesday. We'll go again. 

“Brighton are a good footballing team and we aspire to be like them. You've got to come to places like this and give a good account of yourselves. We're at the wrong end of the table and scrapping for our lives. It's coming to the end of the season; points matter and we need to start getting some. Unfortunately we haven't got any today. 

“We've got some great players and we need to all pull in the same direction. If we do that I'm sure we'll climb the table. It has to be a real team effort.”
