Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley thought his team were resolute following Town’s 1-0 win over Charlton Athletic at The Valley.

Town dominated the majority of the game’s play, creating several chances before Matty Daly scored a last-minute winner.

Town’s Manager was thrilled with the result and proud of the work his players showcased during the game.

“It’s been a difficult couple of weeks,” admitted Danny.

“Pretty much everything that could have gone against us has, and then to be stuck in the Blackwall Tunnel for an hour not moving, that pretty much summed up everything that had come before.

“We said in the changing room before it doesn’t matter what they throw at us we’re going to stick together and fight really hard, and the more things that go against us the deeper we’re going to dig.

“I was proud of the effort of the players tonight, really really proud.”

The Terriers have currently been battling with several injuries, and Danny Cowley commented on how a last-minute illness meant a change in the starting XI.

“There were many excuses for the players tonight, but we know that football doesn’t care about excuses.

“We obviously lost Demeaco Duhaney. He was ill Sunday-Monday and travelled up on his own, but he was ill again last night and unfortunately, we had to send him home.

“We were determined to be really resolute and fight for each other and it’s proven that if that many things are going against you and you can still find a way then for this group anything is possible.”

Duhaney being unwell meant that Danny gave a first Sky Bet Championship start to Rarmani Edmonds-Green, and called on another Academy graduate, Matty Daly, as a substitute in the second-half.

“Rarmani Edmonds-Green, I thought he was unbelievable.

“This time last year Rarmani was playing for Brighouse Town in step five of Non-League, so nine divisions in less than a year is an unbelievable achievement and to play with the focus, the discipline and the composure that he did was outstanding.

“I’m really proud for him because he’s a really good kid.

“When Matty Daly was able to find that moment, he’d obviously had the chance against Leeds, and he’s technically such a good footballer, so to have this one after some really good work from Florent Hadergjonaj – it was a great moment for him, a really great moment for the Academy, and a brilliant brilliant moment for the Football Club.”
