Winger glad to be back – but laments defeat

- Rolando Aarons glad to be back on the pitch for Town
- Despite return, winger disappointed with defeat to Bournemouth
- Aarons unhappy with errors that cost side the game

Although Rolando Aarons was glad to return for Town tonight, he was frustrated not to be able to celebrate after a narrow defeat to AFC Bournemouth.

The Terriers gave themselves too much to do upon conceding a second Cherries goal just before the interval, which rendered an improved second half fruitless despite a rare Jonathan Hogg goal.

“Very frustrating. I think in the second half we reacted very well but unfortunately, we couldn’t get back into the game,” Rolando told HTTV at the final whistle.

“It was one of those games that was going to be decided by things like that, and we made the two errors that cost us the game in the end.

“If you go a couple of goals down going into a break, you have to demand a reaction. We reorganised and reacted positively in the second half but unfortunately it wasn’t enough.

“Hoggy played great again. He got us back into the game and led from the front.

“I thought I should have a penalty, but the referee didn’t give it.”

His appearance as a second half substitute was his first since the away game at Luton Town in February due to a hamstring injury, and the former Newcastle United man wants to use those minutes to benefit the team in the final five games.

“Clearly I needed that. You can’t replicate minutes on the pitch. I had a few loose touches here and there, but hopefully I can get back to my level for the rest of the season and contribute.

“There are a few positives, but it’s another defeat and I really hate losing games. That’s something we need to change very soon.”
