Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley was pleased with his side’s showing but insists he was disappointed they couldn’t get all three points after drawing 1-1 with Swansea City.

Jay Fulton had put the Swans ahead before Karlan Grant equalised shortly before half-time. Trevoh Chalobah was sent off in the closing stages as both sides took a point each from the midweek Sky Bet Championship encounter in West Yorkshire.

“We are (disappointed not to win the game). We were pleased with the performance, pleased with the energy and the intensity that we played at. It was certainly the highest physical output since we’ve been here so we’re definitely improving in that area.

“It was disappointing to go a goal down, but to fight our way back the way we did and get ourselves back in the game was really pleasing.

“It shows a lot of resilience in itself but our overriding emotion is probably disappointment that we didn’t find that goal, particularly when you consider how many chances we had in the second half.”

Karlan Grant’s goal was Town’s only breakthrough of the evening. Alex Pritchard’s shot deflected off Christopher Schindler and into the path of the striker who calmly tucked home his 10th goal of the campaign from inside the box. Danny believes Town’s equaliser was fully deserved.

“I think you earn your own luck. We played the majority of the first half in the Swansea half and when you do that, then you expect the break of the ball at some point.

“You’re always thankful when the ball breaks to Karlan because he’s such a clean finisher. It was a good goal and it set us up for the second half.”

Town defender Jon Gorenc Stanković played his second full 90 minutes in the space of four days in the draw. Danny was pleased with both the Slovenian’s performance and that of the rest of the squad.

“I thought him and Schindy (Christopher Schindler) were flawless defensively, between them I hardly thought they put a foot wrong. We’re playing with makeshift full-backs and I thought they did well.

“Hoggy (Jonathan Hogg) was his consistent self, he’s really finding a level now and maintaining that game in, game out. The front players probed and worked so hard – Fraizer Campbell gives us such an energy and carries the fight for us.

“There’s a lot to like but we haven’t been able to turn those good performances into wins. We have to be frustrated by that, but we’ve now got to dust ourselves down, rest and recover and then go again against a very good Bristol City team away from home.”
