The Opposition View - Huddersfield Town

The Opposition View - Huddersfield Town


In the wake of yesterday's 3-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town, here are some thoughts on the game from the Terriers' manager Lee Clark and a few of their fans.

Clark was delighted with a three-goal haul and a clean sheet after the Blues had made life difficult for his side in the first-half

"We showed a lot of patience against a team who tried to frustrate us," he told his club's official website.

"Even in the first-half we moved the ball about well and didn't try and force the play because that isn't our game. I predict that on many occasions throughout the season, sides will come here and set up similarly to what Wycombe did today."

"It's not easy to break down a team like Wycombe who work very hard and make it difficult for you. I told the players that the first goal would be the key, and it certainly has proved that way."

Pleased with the performance of substitute Alan Lee who scored with his first touch of the ball and later bagged a second, Clarke said: "He was very close to starting today. I have got three strikers now who have got ten goals between them, and I couldn't ask for more at this stage of the season."


The Terriers' fans took the win in their stride, but were full of praise for super-sub Alan Lee, and seemed pleasantly surprised to have kept a clean sheet.

The following extracts are taken from Down at the Mac and Football Forums.

"Wycombe parked the bus and frustrated us, but matches are 90 minutes long and you get nothing for winning the first-half.'

"Credit where credit's due, Clark got it bang on the money today. Good subs, and both got goals.'

"3-0 is probably a little flattering, but against a side set up to try and get a draw (or maybe nick it), we had to battle, and in the end we came through it well with a professional display. We'll play better this season, but it's the result that matters.'

"I don't think we ever got going today but we didn't have to because Wycombe were poor. Comfortable win in the end.'

"Until Clark's changes, Wycombe were doing a grand old job of spoiling us and we were struggling to create openings. The moment Alan Lee came on, he gave us another dimension and clinically finished two crosses into the box.'

"What was their keeper doing for the first AND third goal? Dreadful!'

"Lee's second goal was possibly one of the best headers I've seen at the Galpharm. Cracking cross and bullet header.'

"We played to Lee's strengths by letting him hold the ball and bring others into play, and then getting early crosses into the box when we got it out wide.'

"Not the most fluent of displays, but lots of people have bemoaned our start to the season and today we scored three goals and kept a clean sheet.'

"I know Wycombe were poor up front, but even with no Peter Clarke we got a clean sheet. Regardless of how bad a team is up front we always concede, so well done today HTFC.'

"The clean sheet is a bonus, but in fairness, Wycombe didn't seem to have much to offer in attack.'


Uddersfield wrote:
"Wycombe will have to show a bit more ambition. Joel Grant and their right-back were good though.'
