Huddersfield Town striker Steve Mounié was disappointed that he couldn’t make the supporters happy.

The Terriers were beaten 2-0 by Leeds United at the John Smith’s Stadium despite putting in a battling performance.

When speaking after the game, the Benin international gave his thoughts on the game.

“Disappointed, you know. We wanted to give this win to the fans.

“We had a proper fight on the pitch, we tried to give everything. We are disappointed about to the loss because we wanted to make the fans happy.

“We can tell that everyone was fighting, and I think the fans saw it and can appreciate it.

“It will be like this until the end of the season, so we have to fight and keep trying to win some games.”

Town created a number of openings during the games but couldn’t convert one of their chances.

Mounié, however, wasn’t disheartened by the Club’s fortunes in-front of goal.

“The team have been scoring goals since the beginning of the season, so I don’t think there was a problem up-front, it was just this game; that’s it.”

It was Steve’s first start of the 2019/20 season and to accommodate him, Danny and Nicky Cowley changed their style of play to be more direct.

The striker detailed how they prepared for the change in training and believes it could be a useable system in the future.

“In training because of injuries, we had to change our formation and try something else; that’s why I came in on the pitch.

“The tactics changed because of my strengths and the Manager wanted to play with new players on the pitch.

“We tried to adapt because it wasn’t our habit, so we tried to get used to it and I think we did it well. We will keep going on and try to improve that.

“This style of play is about fighting. Long ball direct to the target man and then you fight for the second ball.

“I think the fans like it, they like a proper fight on the pitch and that can be an option for us if the manager wants to use it.”
