- Jan Siewert looks ahead to Premier League match against Brighton & Hove Albion
- Head Coach on his side becoming ‘good chefs’

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Jan Siewert gave an interesting analogy when discussing goals ahead of the Club’s Premier League game against Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Terriers have scored 15 goals in the Premier League this season, something that Siewert hopes to change
When speaking to the press, he captivatingly compared Town’s efforts in front of goal to food.
“Goals are the salt in the soup. If the soup is tasty then there has to be salt in it sometimes. Without a goal you can’t win a game, so we are trying to be good chefs!”
Steve Mounié scored a last-minute winner in Town’s last top-flight match against Wolverhampton Wanderers to give Siewert his first win as Head Coach.
Siewert’s players put in an excellent performance, one that kept his hope that Huddersfield Town can stay in the Premier League.
“The players deserved it so much and I really enjoyed winning with them.
“We want to go on with it, everyone at the Club who backed me is working hard for it. It was a massive experience for me, but I’m happy the players got what they deserved.
“I think that we are really focused on our performance and because that was good we were allowed to be proud of it.
“Everyone is enjoying it at the moment, we are in a good mood and we’d like to continue.
“You’ve known me for a long time now, of course I believe (we can stay up). Of course, they (the players) believe. In every game they’ve showed it.”
Town’s next challenge is Brighton & HA who haven’t won in the Premier League during 2019.
That stat, however, wasn’t in the forefront of Jan Siewert’s mind as he expects another tough fight.
“We never underestimated any opponent and are just focused on what we have to do.
“After the Wolves game the boys came in with a smile on their faces and that’s what they deserved.
“In each game we always try to start well. For me, it’s necessary that we don’t underestimate any opponent because it’ll be a tough game.
“I analysed Brighton directly after our game, so I know what they are about, and I know it’ll be a tough game for us.
“We know why we go there and what our aim is.”
During the press conference, Jan Siewert gave the latest team news ahead of the match at the AMEX Stadium.
“Adama Diakhaby isn’t good. I think it will take three or four more weeks. It’s a real pity for us, because he performed well. We will try everything to get him back on the pitch as soon as possible.
“It’s a blow but everyone saw the reaction of the players. It’s not an individual that wins games, it’s the team. With our team spirit we helped Adama because with a win you feel comfortable and look forward to join. Hopefully it’s a psychological thing that’ll help him healthier quick.
“We are still having a look at Demeaco; I can’t tell anything at the moment. Maybe it’s possible maybe it’s not.
“It was a tough game on Tuesday, so there’s some small things. I enjoyed that the lads were fighting so much and when you fight sometimes it hurts. Hurting is not that bad.”
