HOGG: WE HAD TO TAKE OUR CHANCES

18 January 2014

Midfielder discusses QPR game

Huddersfield Town midfielder Jonathan Hogg believes the side deserved to come away from QPR with something today – but acknowledged they had to take the chances when they came.

The former Watford man missed one of the opportunities during a dominant first-half display that resulted in no goals and was disappointed to come away on the wrong end of a 2-1 loss.

“All the lads in the changing room are disappointed. We played well today at a place where not many teams will come and win – they’ve only lost once here this season and conceded four goals. 

“We had some good chances and if you are going to win at QPR you have to put them away. We didn’t do that in the first-half

“We also need to toughen up on set plays. To be fair the quality of their delivery was brilliant and it is hard to mark up when there is good movement around the box, but I think that is something we can improve on. 

“In general play I thought we stood toe to toe with them and gave them as good as we got. We put on a performance and didn’t deserve the defeat today. 

“To come here, play the way we did and get nothing is disappointing. On other days we would have come away with all three points, but not today.”

One of the positives from today was a second goal in as many games from Club record signing Nahki Wells:

He continued: “Nahki looks a handful, doesn’t he? He’s only a small man, but he puts himself around and doesn’t mind getting kicked about. We’ve only seen a few days of him in training but he’s not shy – he’s settling in quite nicely.”

Hogg reserved his final words for the magnificent 1,800 sell-out Town support at Loftus Road: 

“We had a brilliant support today and on behalf of all the players I’d like to thank them for making the trip down here.”
