Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán was pleased with the character and competitiveness displayed by his side during the 0-0 draw at Coventry City.

The Terriers responded to the weekend’s heavy defeat with a battling performance at St Andrew’s to take a point back to HD1 from the midweek encounter.

Speaking after the draw in the Midlands, Carlos was happy with how his side responded against the Sky Blues, a team that are now eight games unbeaten in the Sky Bet Championship.

“(I’m) more than happy with the result. I am happy with the reaction of the team after the last defeat, the performance and the competitive level of the team today,” he said.

“If we didn’t play with this competitive spirit today, it would have been very difficult to take something positive.

“Of course we wanted the three points, but at the same time, we had to work a lot today to take this point.”

Town’s best chance of the game in a contest came through Isaac Mbenza in a game which opportunities were very much hard to come by for the majority.

Carlos says the Terriers would have liked to create more against the Sky Blues but commended his side’s efforts in taking at least a point from the encounter.

“I think the team were very concentrated. We had the chances like Isaac’s but we didn’t make as many chances as we wanted to create.

“But this was because the level to compete again was very high. Sometimes it’s difficult to balance this part because at the same time you need to be very focused to compete.

“We played against a team with a lot of spirit and a lot of quality. At the same time, I think the character of our players for the majority was really good.”

Next up for Town is the visit of Watford to the John Smith’s Stadium in the Sky Bet Championship, in just three days’ time.

Despite the tight turnaround, Town’s Head Coach says there will be no excuses and the Terriers will work as hard as possible to be ready for the visit of the Hornets at the weekend.

“The most important thing for me is to have all the players ready and for me to make the right decision.

“We know this competition and these challenges, but we are not going to be looking for an excuse.

“What we have to do now is use every single minute that we have to try to control every aspect that can have an impact on the recoveries of the players."
