Head Coach Jan Siewert reflects on Town’s 4-3 defeat to West Ham United

- Jan Siewert stunned at late West Ham turnaround
- Town’s Head Coach feels his side should've held on for all three points
- Listen to Jan Siewert's full interview on #HTTV 

Jan Siewert struggled to explain just how his Huddersfield Town side couldn't manage to pull off the victory at London Stadium as a late West Ham turnaround meant a positive afternoon swiftly changed course.

Proceedings were going smoothly having led 3-1 on the hour mark, in which the men from HD1 had come from behind thanks to Mark Noble's penalty giving the hosts the advantage, but it wasn't to be as Angelo Ogbonna and Chicharito (2) snatched it; an ending that had Siewert bewildered.

"I have so many thoughts after today's game. Since the last game, we worked really hard. When you score three times in the game and go away from here with a defeat, it is hard to describe at the moment.

"I knew scoring three times at West Ham wouldn't be easy. I've worked it out, and I cannot believe we lost this game."

Juninho Bacuna and Karlan Grant - Town's goalscorers in the Capital - were exceptional throughout all aspects of the performance, however both had to depart due to injuries.

The Head Coach also, once again, praised the ever-loyal Town supporters who made the trip down South.

"This (the injuries to Bacuna and Grant) made it even harder for us, but there will be no serious injuries. I know the Premier League and its intensity, and we were short on numbers. The players who went off left it all on the pitch and they made it hard for me to substitute them.

"I don't know what to say, but I tip my hat to the supporters. They have a very good feeling for what I'm doing here. For me, it's hard to describe and I just feel disappointed.

"Of course, the application was there, but for me it is about winning. We want to win games. We now have seven more games to represent this club."
