Huddersfield Town forward Josh Koroma was glad to be back on the pitch but disappointed he couldn’t help the team to a win on his return.
The Terriers were beaten 1-0 by Barnsley at the John Smith’s Stadium following substitute Daryl Dike’s second-half goal.
Koroma started the game on his comeback, his first minutes on the pitch since suffering a hamstring injury in early-December.
The forward reflected on the game post-match.
“We know what Barnsley are good at, we tried to execute a game plan and it worked up until we made an individual error,” he told #HTTV.
“It was hard to settle, their press is very good, we pressed high, we pressed hard. It was an end-to-end game.
“Luckily, we’ve got another game on Saturday, so we just have to try and pick up three points there.”
Koroma played just under 70 minutes on return and shared both his delight at being back on the pitch, along with his overriding emotion of discontent following the result.
“It’s nice to be back in the team, it’s nice to get a run out but we didn’t win so I’m disappointed.
“My match fitness isn’t up there so I have to just try and get it back before the end of the season, but it was good to play.”
With three games left to play this season, the forward is hoping to build on those minutes in the coming weeks as he targets a strong finish to the campaign with the team.
“If we just play like we did at the start of the season, I think we’ll be perfectly fine.
“We don’t want to rely on other results, we want to rely on us, so we just have to try and pick up nine points from the remaining three games.”
