Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Jonas Lössl has praised the effort of every Terriers player in helping to secure another defensive shutout in the 0-0 draw with Sheffield Wednesday.

Town couldn’t find the net themselves but kept the hosts out in the Yorkshire derby to ensure that they would take a point from South Yorkshire.

Lössl commended the effort that his teammates put in across the 90 minutes en-route to a third clean sheet in their last four Sky Bet Championship matches.

Speaking to #HTTV after the match, the ‘keeper insists that the efforts were vital in securing another point.

“We got an important point and another clean sheet as well,” he said.

“It’s important for the whole team. You don’t get it from one man, you get it from 11; we were all behind it.

“We need to build on that. Today, this positive result is very important for us.”

Jonas had to work hard himself for a third clean sheet in four, pulling off several impressive stops to keep the hosts out.

The highlight of those saves was a fingertip save on the stretch to stop a curling effort from Kadeem Harris – something he gave credit to teammate and fellow ‘keeper Joel Coleman for.

“I have to give credit to Clem (Paul Clements) and to Joel (Coleman) – Joel buried me a couple times this week up in the right corner, so I thought ‘not again!’

“We have a great team here. I’ve worked with Clem and Joel now for three years, Joel is always there to support, always positive. Clem is doing excellent work out there, so I enjoy it.”

The point extends Town’s gap over the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone to three points with two games left to go.

Jonas expressed the importance of responding at Hillsborough to Friday’s defeat, particularly with so little time left in the season.

“It’s good, it’s positive (the mood in the dressing room after the game).

“It was really important to come here and to have a positive game after Friday’s very disappointing result.

“I compare this to Birmingham away, there was the same spirit in there. Obviously, we didn’t get the goals but besides that (the performance was similar).”

The first of those two remaining games comes on Friday (17 July 2020) when promotion-chasing West Bromwich Albion are the visitors at the John Smith’s Stadium for the Terriers’ final home match of the season.

Town’s no.49 says recovery will be important with the game just three days away but says he’s enjoying the continued stream of matches in the current period.

“I think the guys just need to find their legs again. It’s a tough programme for them.

“Mentally, I think we’re all there. Personally, I just love it – it’s fantastic to know there’s another game in three days.

“There’s something on the line and this is football at its best.”
