Striker annoyed as Town concede lead to take only a point
- Danny Ward discusses the draw at West Bromwich Albion
- Wardy scored twice to take his seasonal tally to 13 goals
- Striker knows side should have taken all three points
Despite scoring another two goals to continue his stellar season, striker Danny Ward cut an unhappy figure when speaking after Town’s 2-2 draw at West Bromwich Albion.
Ward’s latest brace of the campaign had put Town well in control, only for a debatable penalty decision and a quickfire second to pull the home side level.
“I’m frustrated and annoyed. To be 2-0 up at the 80th minute, you should be taking the three points,” Danny told HTTV at the final whistle.
“We were playing some really good football and showing what we are about. They had a bit of pressure when the big man came on for them, which we expected, so it’s frustrating.”
Ward is now enjoying his best goalscoring season, surpassing the 12 goals he got for Sky Bet Championship side Rotherham United in 2016/17. Although his 12th and 13th goals didn’t rival some of his other spectacular strikes this term, he’ll take them!
He continued: “The first one is probably one of the scabbiest goals I’ve scored in my career, but they all count! The second one was about being in the right place at the right time, I suppose. It’s nice to be on the scoresheet.
“I’m very pleased, after last year. To be playing week-in and week-out and getting on the scoresheet is what I want to be doing as a striker. Hopefully I can keep doing that.”
Danny also took time to praise the travelling support that cheered the side on at the Hawthorns.
“They’re massive. When we have a few good attacks, they get louder and louder and that keeps pushing us on right until the end of the game. To see them out in force is brilliant.”
It’s another quick turnaround for the Terriers, who are back on the road to face Millwall at the Den on Wednesday night. Although disappointed tonight in the Midlands, the 31-year-old is keen to move forward.
“The games are coming thick and fast. We have a game on Wednesday now so we have to get back, recover and go again. I thought the way we played, passing it about and creating good chances, should give us confidence to take forward.
“To be 17 unbeaten in the Championship is brilliant and shows how well we’ve been playing. It’s just frustrating not to have the three points.”
