Huddersfield Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham admitted he was disappointed with the result but took the positives from the match after losing 0-2 to Sunderland at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Commenting on the loss, Fotheringham discussed his disappointment as well as speaking highly of the performance from his team:

“I am bitterly disappointed with the result, but the performance levels were really high.

“I thought that we played on the front foot, played exciting football, and created some good chances, while creating real problem for Sunderland.

“In the situation where Duane Holmes goes one on one with the ‘keeper, normally nine times out of ten he slots it past and into the net, then the flip side is that they go up the pitch on the counter-attack and we should probably have better security behind the ball, but that is something we have got to work on.

“We kept pushing until the end and we had some young lads in there as well who stepped in, and they did excellently, they didn’t look out of place at all against a strong Sunderland team.

“That was definitely not a team that looked like bottom of the table tonight, and we know if they keep performing like that and showing that level of commitment and the confidence, that we’re going to win games.

“We just need to be careful in this period and make sure that we get important and experienced players back from injury, and when we do, we will have a really strong squad.”
