'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Opposition View


Following yesterday's 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town, here are some views on the game from Terriers' manager Lee Clark and a few of their fans.


The Huddersfield boss was delighted with all three points but not entirely satisfied with his side's performance.

"When we did the right things we created opportunities and the two goals were fantastic finishes by our two strikers. However, we could have made it a bit more comfortable for ourselves because we had periods where we didn't do the necessary things and we lost our discipline and shape," said Clark, speaking to htafc.com.

"I just want to point out that I think the goal we gave away was really poor and we should have had the game wrapped up by then. We had opportunities to go three or four up and you have to be ruthless."

"I want a bit more relaxation in the dugout because we're giving ourselves a nervy time in the final twenty minutes. Hopefully that goal will gave my lads a little bit of a wake-up call and will keep us down to earth a bit," he said.


The Town fans felt their side did enough to win without playing particularly well, and they didn't have much to say about us.

The following extracts are taken from 'Down at the Mac'.

'Not a great game or performance, but it's still three points. Crucial save by Smithies late on from a deflected shot. Respect to Gareth Ainsworth - he ran his socks off and tried his hardest - a good old pro prepared to fight for his team today.'

'Poor performance I thought and worrying for the play offs. But I guess you can only beat what's in front of you and that's what we did.'

'We were ok today against a dreadful Wycombe side and I should know: I was at the game with three Wycombe fans who were almost suicidal. We should have been clear by half-time and once again made a meal of it against poor opposition.'

'Thought the Wycombe goal was lucky. Their player got the rub of the green from an interception which could have gone anywhere.'

'It should have been all over early in the second half but poor final balls and finishing prevented a more comfortable victory. We then compounded it by giving away another soft goal although I thought the late switch of formation to 4-5-1 worked a treat and stopped them building any real pressure on our goal.'

'I don't think I have ever seen a striker run himself into the ground like Jordan Rhodes did for us today. He almost needed to be carried off the pitch at the end. Absolutely superb performance from the lad.'
