Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán says he had mixed feelings after his side secured their Sky Bet Championship status following a 1-1 draw with Coventry City.

Danny Ward’s second-half leveller ensured Town would take a point from the final home game of the season. With that and results elsewhere, the Terriers secured safety in the division with a game to spare.

Carlos shared his thoughts when speaking to BBC Radio Leeds after the match.

“I have a mix of feelings,” he said.

“First of all, it was very important for as a club to stay in the Championship, that was our first target.

“We achieved the target today but at the same time we wanted to achieve it winning the game.”

Following a goalless first half, the Terriers fell behind to Jordan Shipley’s opener before Ward’s goal in the minutes following.

Carlos says it was a half of two halves for Town, who reacted to take at least a point from the contest.

“The second half was hard for us. In the first half of it, we didn’t control the game how we needed to.

“After that, we controlled it better and so we could react and draw the game. When you cannot win, it’s the minimum result you have to get.”

With Championship status now secured for next season, Carlos says the Terriers are determined to learn from this campaign's experience going forward.

“We know that inside of ourselves, we know how difficult it can be for our fans suffering the results we have this year.

“I cannot forget this. We know we suffered more than we wanted to suffer.

“The target was to keep the club in the Championship, and we did that, but we wanted to do it in another way but sometimes in life things don’t work how you want them to do.

“What we need to do is to learn a lot, to change a lot and to improve a lot.”
