- Carlos Corberán reviews Town’s 1-1 draw at Rotherham United
- Head Coach proud of the players for their performance
- He believes the late equaliser was ‘the least the players deserved’

Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán was delighted that his players got the goal they deserved to come away from Rotherham United with a point today.

The Terriers dominated large periods of the game but had to wait until added time to draw level after Ben Wiles’ first half strike, with Pipa’s shot being deflected into his own net by defender Angus MacDonald.

“Even before we scored the goal that allowed us to take one point, I was really pleased with the players. I was proud of them, even if we hadn’t got the result we wanted,” Carlos told HTTV.

“At the end, the one point was the minimum the team deserved today. In particular, the second half was a really good performance. We were fantastic, and I thought the team created the chances to win the game today.

“From watching Rotherham in their previous games, we knew they were a team that doesn’t concede chances. They defend very well and have good set pieces. We knew they were a team that takes time between situations and the game can be very interrupted if you don’t control possession. They make it very difficult.

“One of the keys of today’s game was to have control and manage the tempo, and in the second half we did that fantastically. We dominated the ball and played the game in our offensive half. We didn’t concede any chances and made a very good effort.

“I’m very happy that the players received something for the effort that they did.”

Carlos was particularly delighted that the players took on board the messages from the coaching staff at half time.

“We started the game really well and created two chances in the first 10 minute, but they found more free-kicks as time went on and we didn’t find the clear spaces to attack. They were very compact in the middle and we didn’t use the switch of play enough.

“We talked about that in the dressing room, and the players understood it fantastically. We did it in the second half, with the centre backs in a higher position to close the space to the strikers. The players understood the situation, had confidence and continued to move the ball.

“We continued to manage the ball and found the right moments to create chances. Fortunately, we scored the goal.”
