Florent Hadergjonaj took the positives out of Town’s performance against Southampton after a “difficult game” at St. Mary’s.
The Terriers were beaten 2-0 by the Saints in the Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup, despite putting in a battling performance.
When speaking after the game, Flo detailed how Town’s game plan almost worked against the Premier League outfit.
“It was a difficult game. We knew that Southampton were in a good mood, they got 10 points out of their last four games, so were in a good shape.
“It was always going to be hard away here. We tried our best.
“We tried to stick to our game plan to frustrate them, I think it was alright in the first half and had our chances on the counter attack.
“We knew that we would get some chances, but at the end you need to take your chances if you want to get through to the next round.
“At the end of the first half we had some good chances, so if you take them it would’ve been a different game.
“I think our defensive shape was very good. We need to keep going and working hard as a team.”
This game was Town’s fifth in two weeks and Flo explained how tough that period was for the team.
“At the moment we haven’t got a big squad, we can’t rotate a lot of players, so a lot of players had to play nearly every game, so it’s hard in this Christmas period.
“You have to stick together as a team, keep following our game plans and then get some points.”
The 25-year-old, who is usually utilised as a full-back, started on the right-wing for Town and threatened down the flank.
Flo explained that it doesn’t matter where he plays as long as he can help the team.
“It wasn’t the first time I played in this role, especially in this Stadium. I played here for my National Team in this position.
“My main aim is to help the team. Wherever the Manager wants to let me play, I will play and try my best to help the team.
“I had some good actions today, but the most important thing is we keep going as a team.”
