Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley was pleased with how his players stood up to the task following a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest in the Sky Bet Championship.

Skipper Christopher Schindler and Steve Mounié got on the scoresheet either side of half-time before a late response from Forest’s Joe Worrall.

Danny Cowley looked back on the victory at the John Smith’s Stadium in the context of Town’s campaign.

“I think it’s a really important win in our season. I think it was a cagey start between two competitive teams, they came and were very physical in their style and we had to stand up to it,” he said.

“We managed to get control and find a first goal from a set piece. To get the second from a well-worked (set piece) was pleasing.”

The second goal came on 49 minutes courtesy of Steve Mounié’s back post header; a moment that Danny was delighted to see come to fruition.

“I was delighted for Steve. He’s had a frustrating start to the season, but he’s worked really professionally, really diligently behind the scenes.

“He’s brilliant in the air and carries real threat and we’ve been able to keep working. The delivery is the best it’s been today, Juninho put in a brilliant one in the first half and then two good corners from Karlan.”

Town’s Manager still had to contest with various injuries when selecting his line-up for the game. He was proud of how his players adapted to the fixture.

“It’s challenging and you have to find a way. You can either sulk and have excuses or you can be adaptable. We changed the formation, we changed the personnel, we changed the style; we’ve just tried to find the best way for the players.

“We’ve tried to set them up to be successful. I’m proud of them because in these moments it’s easy to feel sorry for yourselves and make excuses. They haven’t; we’ve managed to get seven out of nine points.”

With the win, the Terriers take three points in the final game before Christmas before a busy schedule of games starting with a trip to the Riverside Stadium to face Middlesbrough on Boxing Day.

“We’ve managed to navigate through the game, get the win and if you can take some momentum into the Christmas period with the games coming so thick and fast, there’s a lot of points to be gained.”
