Harry Toffolo wants the real Huddersfield Town to step forward for the final eight games of the Sky Bet Championship campaign.
As football returned, the Terriers were beaten 2-0 by Wigan Athletic at the John Smith’s Stadium, meaning they are now just one point above the relegation zone.
When speaking after the game, the left-back shared his frustrations about the result.
“Building up to this game all week we’d been working hard, we played friendly games and it was looking really well, but it didn’t work against Wigan.
“We’ve got eight games, eight massive games. They will go quickly, so we have to be sharp.
“We have to look at the negatives from the game and work on it. We aren’t ones to hide behind it.
“We have to hold our hands up personally and as a team. We weren’t at the races and we are respectful that the fans watching at home deserved a lot more from us.
“We are going to work hard; that’s something we do best. We have a break now where we can look at the game back. We can do a lot better.”
The 24-year-old admitted that the players have to take responsibility for the performance.
“I think Danny (Cowley) is frustrated because he knows the potential in the group. We didn’t give him it. As players we have to hold our hands up and take responsibility.
“First of all, you have to look at yourself, instead of pointing fingers at other people, make sure your own house is in order and get your position locked down.
“If you do that, then you’ll be in a better place.”
With eight games remaining, Town are just one point above the relegation zone.
“It’s tough but we are fully confident that we can keep Huddersfield Town up,” said Toffs.
“We have the people in the dressing room and players coming back from injury that’ll be key for us.
“I want to reassure the fans, I understand that it’s a very frustrating time at the Football Club at the minute, but we are giving our all, I promise you that, and we will get ourselves out the predicament.”
