Defender looking for a strong finish
Huddersfield Town defender Murray Wallace is hoping to put a spanner in the works of Leicester City’s plan to reach 100 points.
With two games remaining, the Foxes need four points to reach a century, but Town’s central defender is keen to keep the points in Huddersfield.
“Training has been good and the lads are confident,” he said. “Saturday’s match is a big game and we know that Leicester want to reach 100 points, but we will work hard to stop them. We want to end the season with a win on home soil and express ourselves.”
Wallace put in another assured performance against the Glovers on Easter Monday as he helped Town secure their Championship status.
“The atmosphere is more relaxed following the win; everybody is delighted that our status in the Championship is confirmed for next season and unlike last term, we aren’t leaving it until the last match!
“There was a lot of relief, but we shouldn’t have been in the predicament that we had found ourselves in,” Murray admitted. “However, I think we were feeling the pressure, so to get the win and secure our status was a good feeling.”
The Scottish defender has played 21 times this season – a significant improvement on last season’s seven appearances – but feels that he still has plenty to work on heading into next term.
“I have been too inconsistent for my liking,” he said. “It is something I am working on, but I am hopeful that I will be involved on Saturday. I need to work on my concentration; I have been prone to the odd error which I haven’t been happy about.”
