Midfielder comments after the defeat to Blackpool

- Midfielder believes one win can spark a good run of results

Midfielder Jon Russell believes that the controversial goal that wasn’t given for the Terriers on the hour mark against Blackpool would have turned the tide in Town’s favour in today’s 1-0 defeat.

Yuta Nakayama’s close-range effort appeared to have crossed the line in the second-half, but the goal-line technology suggested otherwise.

Russell believes that pivotal moment was key in another fiercely contested Sky Bet Championship game.

“I feel like we played much better today than we have most days. We did well as a team, but I don’t feel like decisions went our way,” Jon told HTTV post-match.

“I think the goal that wasn’t given as in would have been the turning point. These things do happen in football though, so now we have to get on with it.

“It’s disappointing, as it would have been a turning point for us. I think we would have carried on and won. We have to move on, and go again in the next game.

“I really don’t feel that we played badly but as I’ve said, things didn’t go our way today. If we keep playing like that, I think we will get good results. We must keep working hard and play to our full potential.

“If we carry on and get that win, I can see us going on a good run. We did that last year, and look where it got us. We have to believe that we can do it.”
