Huddersfield Town midfielder Lewis O’Brien was delighted to make his first competitive start for the Club.

Lewis, who’s been with the Terriers since Under-11 level, started his first Sky Bet Championship game for Town as the Club drew 1-1 with QPR.

The 20-year-old explained how much it meant to him to be selected by Jan Siewert.

“It meant everything, I’m delighted to make my first start.

“I hope there’s many more to come but we didn’t get the result we wanted and that’s the main point.”

Grant Hall’s late equaliser meant Town only came away with a point. Lewis wasn’t happy with the result but admitted that there’s positives the players can take.

“The way we played the game to go one nil up and then for all three points to be knocked away, it is disappointing, but to get a point away from home you have to take the positives.

“We’ve got ourselves off the mark now, a point is a point. We are just looking to each and every game to perform better. This game has gone now so we are already looking to the next one.”

Town took the lead after the 49th minute through Karlan Grant. The youngster explained the change in game plan at the break.

“We came out the blocks fast in the second half. It was good to get the goal quite early, but we let ourselves down letting them put the pressure on when we were 1-0 up.

“We wanted to press high from the start, but the way the game panned out it didn’t help us. The second half we started quick and got the press on.

“They put a lot of pressure on us (after the goal), we had to try and hold it out and get our foot back in the game, but unfortunately it didn’t go that way.”
