Town Head Coach speaks after Brighton & Hove Albion draw

- Wagner pleased with the way his side went about its business at the Amex
- Head Coach wants the team to build on the performance in the next match v Watford
- Listen to David Wagner’s full interview below

David Wagner was full of praise for his Terriers as a spirited performance secured yet another Premier League point at the Amex.

The Head Coach emphasised that his men played ‘decent football’ and could well have come away with all three, but also noted that the game could have gone either way in an entertaining contest.

Town’s performance led the Head Coach to believe his side can build further ahead of next Saturday’s hosting of Watford.

David admitted that he felt conceding a chance in the first 30 minutes may have made his players nervous, but a strong character was shown to what was a tough start from the hosts.

When speaking to HTTV, David Wagner commented:

“Both teams wanted to win and I think we’ve seen this. It was a draw that we accept, it was a deserved point – we were able to win it but we were also able to concede a defeat as well.

“The lads showed bravery on the ball, they played some decent football and defended with fighting spirit. At the end, we have this point that I’m happy about as a performance. The players have showed a lot of good things at this difficult stadium.

“To respond like they did today, the first five minutes were very difficult and the goal we conceded was unlucky, but the players responded in a positive manner and that’s what I like.”

“We had a totally different mindset to last week. We forced them into mistakes or uncontrolled long balls, and over a good period of time the players have done well. We won second balls and were decent on the ball, the goal was a mistake but we forced them into it and we were able to capitalise on that.”
