Head Coach Carlos Corberán says Huddersfield Town’s 2-1 defeat to Barnsley at Oakwell is difficult to take.

The Terriers had gone ahead in the first half but were pegged back before the break before the hosts went on to win the game with a stoppage time goal.

Carlos was disappointed to come away from the contest empty-handed.

“No doubt (it’s painful),” he said.

“When you cannot win a game with all the effort you put in over the 90 minutes, you cannot lose the concentration in situations we are in better conditions to defend.

“In the end, I don’t they did enough and neither did we from the attacking point of view.

“But we cannot lose the concentration. We lost the chance to take one point that we would have appreciated a lot.”

Speaking following the game at Oakwell, Carlos reviewed the Terriers’ performance in South Yorkshire.

“I think we started the game really well.

“Then, we weren’t able to break the press enough after we scored the goal, we created only one clear chance with (Fraizer) Campbell.

“We didn’t create all the chances that we wanted to create, there was a lot of challenges in the middle of the pitch and second balls that we had to fight a lot to not suffer the consequences of.

“I think the team did well but off one set piece they scored a goal I think we were in a situation to avoid.

“We played better in the second half even without creating many chances. But at the same time, with the only option they had, they scored the goal in added time.

“It makes the result very painful today.”

With the result in mind, Town’s Head Coach says there’s a lot Town can learn going forward, with Blackburn Rovers next up in the Sky Bet Championship for his side on Tuesday.

“I think what we need to do is learn a lot from the football point of view, learn a lot from the situation that the game is going to demand, and learn a lot that in the Championship you need to compete very well before you can impose your style in attack.”
