Young midfielder Philip Billing hopes the win over Wolves on Tuesday night can give Huddersfield Town some momentum going into this weekend’s game.

Huddersfield Town faces Brighton & HA at the AMEX Stadium on Saturday 2 March 2019 with the game kicking off at 3pm.

The Terriers come into this game with new-found confidence following the win on Tuesday night at the John Smith’s Stadium, something Phil hopes will kick the Club on in the next few weeks.

“The win over Wolves was fantastic, not only for us as players and for the Club, but also for the fans.

“I think it’s something they have been waiting for, for a long time, like us players have.

“It’s nice to get the win and to get some momentum going into the next few games.

“Against Wolves we created a lot, defended very well and were very aggressive. Wolves couldn’t deal with us in midfield and all over the pitch.

“I think they had one shot on goal, which is a big credit to the defence. Of course, we scored the one goal, which was important. Hopefully it made everyone happy.”

Brighton & HA currently sit 16th in the Premier League and the Club is without a top-flight win in 2019.

The Denmark Under-21 international admits the players are focused on putting in a similar performance against the Seagulls.

“Beating Wolves, a very good side who are 7th, and I think if we go into the Brighton & HA game with the same mentality I don’t see why we can’t get any points.

“I can’t see why we would focus on the opposition. We’ve played all the teams this season, kind of know how they play and know them.

“At home, obviously, we lost the game and got a red card, but it’ll be a completely different game now. We are going into it to try and doing everything we can to get three points.”

When Jan Siewert joined the Club, Phil was still recovering from injury.

But despite not being out on the training pitch, the midfielder revealed he tried to pick up on details by watching his teammates on the grass.

“It (the style of play) was a lot different the way he wants to play – I guess every Manager has a different way they want to play – you could see what we wanted to do and they way he wanted us to do

“Even though I was out injured at the time, doing some running away from training, I was trying to watch to learn.

“It seems attractive forward, play forward, attacking football. It was easy to see his style of play.”
