HOGGY: THE LADS DESERVE BIG CREDIT

Town midfielder on securing Sky Bet Championship safety

- Jonathan Hogg looks back on Town’s season
- Midfielder praised Terriers’ effort to stay up
- Hoggy looks ahead to the 2020/21 campaign

Huddersfield Town midfielder Jonathan Hogg praised the Terriers’ determined showing to secure Sky Bet Championship football for another season.

Town’s Championship safety was officially confirmed on the final day despite defeat at Millwall, as the Terriers finished the season in 18th position, four places above the relegation zone on 51 points.

It would have taken several miracles elsewhere for the Terriers to drop into the bottom three on the final day following a 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion a few days earlier that all but secured the Club’s place in the second tier for another season.

Speaking after that win over the Baggies at the John Smith’s Stadium in the penultimate game of the season, Hoggy expressed his delight at Town being able to get over the line.

“It’s been a rollercoaster of a year – so many ups and so many downs. The lads deserve big credit.

“Even in the position we’ve been in, with no fans here, it’s been so tough.

“It’s just a shame that the fans weren’t here (in the Stadium) to celebrate it with us.”

Having joined the Club back in 2013, Hoggy has had his fair share of experiences across his seven years with the Terriers.

With Town having just one point from their opening eight league games, the midfielder ranks staying up this season amongst the highest achievements during his time as a Terrier.

“It’s up there. It’s matching when we got promoted.

“The amount of downs we’ve been on, and people doubting us, it’s a really special moment.

“I’m so glad for the Club and the players that we managed to get over the line.”

Hoggy also praised the togetherness of the squad before looking ahead to the 2020/21 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Town’s no.6 and his teammates will work with new Head Coach Carlos Corberán as they look to kick on from this season’s position.

“We have to stick together in times like this and we have done, we’ve got over the line.

“I’m really looking forward to moving on to next year now.

“Let’s go again and see what we can do.”
