Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán was disappointed with the way the Terriers conceded the advantage in the 2-0 defeat to Watford.
Town had shown defensive solidity in the first half at Vicarage Road but fell behind shortly after the break following a defensive mistake which ultimately meant they came away from Hertfordshire empty-handed.
Carlos gave his verdict when speaking post-match.
“I think it was clear we had control in the game; we didn’t concede any important chances until the first goal.
“At the same time, we didn’t create enough chances to unbalance the game.
“They had the ball in the spaces we wanted them to have the ball, we wanted to recover the ball, make some counter-attacks and impose some quality.
“I think the team started the second half well, we needed to attack them because we knew we didn’t do it enough in the first half.
“It was important to arrive at the half with a draw as a minimum and we achieved this.
“In the second half, when we started to find a clear advantage to attack this team, we give a goal that we cannot concede and after this, that’s the game.
“The first thing we talked about at half-time was to avoid passes to the ‘keeper, in the first half every time we did it, they pressed it.
“We wanted to avoid it in the second half. It was a lack of concentration that cost us.
“We knew if we gave one goal to them it would be hard to take the game.”
Town arrived at Vicarage Road with several absentees through injury, but Carlos says that it is no excuse for the defeat.
“We arrived in conditions that we knew before today,” he said.
“The key today was to compete, and I think we did until we gave one goal to them.
“If we don’t compete, we can’t win games and we need to win a lot of games to compete.”
