Jan Siewert acknowledged that his side created a lot of chances during the 2-1 defeat to Javi Gracia’s Watford side, despite Karlan Grant grabbing a stoppage time consolation goal.

The Head Coach spoke to #HTTV after the game about the disappointment of conceding an early goal, but he also admitted that his players are beginning to show positive aspects during games.

“Unfortunately after five minutes we were directly on the back foot, but still there were very positive things for me to see today.

“The result of course is very painful, but Watford is a good and organised team and we really could’ve hurt them today.

“I’m proud of how the lads tried to be on the front foot in my system.”

Siewert’s side created a lot of chances during this afternoon’s game and the Head Coach was pleased with the players’ performances in his preferred 4-3-3 system.

“I learn so much from these games because the chances will also be there in the Championship and you can in your way then punish it, for me it’s important to go through this process.

“It belongs in football to have moments where you’re disappointed but it’s about being positive and changing it.

“I can tell the fans and all the supporters that they must stay positive as I know what to do.”

Town youngster Matty Daly made his senior debut for the Club when he came on as a first half substitute for Jonathan Hogg, and Siewert acknowledged that today is a proud moment for the whole of the Club.

“He’s been in my mind for a long time but there was an illness and then an injury, but I think everybody from Huddersfield Town can be proud now today.

“He’s a player who has come through the Academy and for me he has made a real impact.

“I’m looking forward to working with him and stabilising him.”
