Huddersfield Town Caretaker Head Coach Mark Hudson spoke of his disappointment after the Club’s 2-1 defeat to Cardiff City.

A last-minute goal from Junior Hoillett condemned the Terriers to defeat in the Welsh Capital.

After taking temporary charge since the departure of Jan Siewert, Hudson has tried to change Town’s style of play.

He explained what he asked from them and how the implemented it during the game.
“I asked them to play high energy, I asked us to play a certain way and you could see flashes of that today, but ultimately we fell short.

“I think come 70 minutes we went flat, but to show a reaction like they did going in behind at half-time, Cardiff scoring just before half-time, and then to come out and play the way we did, for spells, was what I asked of them.

“You could see there’s a reaction ready to go, they just need to believe a bit more and I’m sure they’ll do that on Saturday.”

Despite coming away from Cardiff empty handed, Hudson explained how his style of play could benefit the Club in the future.

“I think that formation suits us, it suits our style, suits our identity as a club, and I thoroughly believe that.

“Pritch in the 10, he hasn’t played there for a while, and you could see that the link with him and Karlan wasn’t quite there. As that continues you will see more of that connection.

“They played with the style I asked, they built up, they were brave, showed themselves they could come back from a goal down, but ultimately came up short, so I’m disappointed with the end.”

Hudson explained how he sensed a different mood in the dressing room after the game – one that gives them a lift going into the game against Reading.

“There was a glint in their eye because they felt there was something to go with.

“They are disappointed, I’m disappointed, the fans are disappointed they’ve come all this way. We wanted to give them something, we showed them in flashes.

“There’s things that we can work on, but they felt confident in the style of play and the shape suited them.”
