Defender keen to see record improve against top six

- Defender discusses his search for a goal
- Smith looks ahead to the Boro game

Huddersfield Town defender Tommy Smith says the team fears no opponent ahead of Tuesday night’s trip to second placed Middlesbrough.

The right back made his 100th start for the Club in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday and admitted he was aggrieved at the manner of the loss after a decent performance from the Terriers.

“At the end of the day, we were beaten 1-0. It’s really frustrating, as there are only so many times that you can play well in games and not get the result you want,” Tommy explained.

“On Saturday, that was definitely the case. We felt like we were playing well and we were in the game, but they scored in the 83rd minute and before you know it the game is done.”

Tommy went as close as any Town player to scoring against the Owls with a first half effort from the edge of the box, but his search for a first Sky Bet Championship goal goes on.

Smith continued: “I’m getting into the right positions, so I’m not worrying about it. It’ll come when it comes. If I can get into those positions and assist other people, I’m more than happy with that.”

Now the Terriers face another of the division’s top sides on Tuesday night, with Tommy explaining the team fears no opponent; not even the one with the Championship’s best home record.

“We’re in the Championship and it’s not an easy league. It’s a tough league with many players in it who have played in the Premier League or a national team.

“We know what we’ll come up against and it’s up to us players to stop them.

“Our next step is to start beating these top teams. We knew our record against them isn’t the best and we need to start picking up points against them to get to where we want to be.

“We don’t fear any team. We’re more than confident in ourselves, just like the Head Coach is, so we go into every game feeling confident; home or away. We go out trying to bring the idea that the Head Coach wants onto the pitch.”
