Huddersfield Town striker Fraizer Campbell explained that the Terriers got what they deserved after they beat Bristol City 2-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Danny Cowley’s side put in arguably the most complete performance of the 2019/20 campaign and ran out winners against the Robins.
When speaking after the game, Fraizer explained that the performance was exactly what the players needed after the defeat to Swansea.
“It’s brilliant. Off the back of the weekend’s performance, everyone was hurt and disappointed with the way we got beat away from home.
“We knew we had a couple of days to turn it round and make it right. We knew Bristol City are a good team – they battered us last time we played them at our place.
“The feeling before the game was that ‘we owe them one’ and ‘we owe the fans one’ from the performance at the weekend.
“It’s great to come away with three points. Everyone worked really hard tonight and we got what we deserved.
“We’ve got some great team spirit after that, everyone’s buzzing, and hopefully we can take that into Saturday.”
Town had a real rhythm going forwards and created a number of chances. Town’s striker described how the relationships are developing all over the pitch.
“I’m delighted for Chris (Willock); it was his first start and he was rewarded with a goal. He was brilliant today. I’m happy Karlan (Grant) got a goal too after I ruined his first one.
“Like I said before, it wasn’t just the front four. We set the tone, start it off, and everyone behind us have to be with us; they were today. Everyone was raring to go and really up for the game today.”
Fraizer missed the Swansea game through tonsillitis, but played through the pain this evening, and put in a real shift.
“A couple of the lads were calling me Lazarus,” joked the striker.
“I was on my death bed on Friday. I’ve never missed a training session or a match my whole career through illness, but I could barely get out of bed on Friday. I was gutted that I couldn’t be with the lads, I was even more gutted after the defeat.
“I’m on antibiotics, I’ve been trying to fight it and I put the team before myself and tried to run through it. I think it caught up to me in the later stages of the game.”
