Striker reviews Burnley defeat

- Striker disappointed in first half
- Watch Danny’s full interview below

Huddersfield Town striker Danny Ward was disappointed with the first 45 minutes of the Terriers’ Sky Bet Championship opener against Burnley.

A poor first half performance saw them unable to get themselves back into the game following Ian Maatsen’s 18th minute goal.

Speaking post-match, Wardy was quick to give his thoughts on the game.

“I think you’ve got to look at the way they played.

“Obviously, they played some really good football and we tried to get after them for the first 20 minutes, they played it around as well.

“I thought the second half was a lot better, we created a lot more chances, but I think the first half killed us really.”

It was a brighter second half for Town, seeing three new signings make their way onto the pitch. In particular, Chelsea loanee Tino Anjorin stood out to Wardy.

“The likes of Tino – he’s going to be a threat going forward.

“Picking those balls up in those low areas and driving forward – that’s something you want as a striker.

“I thought Rudoni did really well as well, and obviously Kas, I don’t know what he’s done, but I hope it’s nothing too serious.”

The game saw 20,206 fans make their way to the John Smith’s Stadium, and our striker made sure to make sure they know it’s appreciated.

“Obviously, we played the pre-season games in front of a few fans, but to play in front of a packed John Smith’s – it’s where you want to be.”
