Huddersfield Town

Kongolo not resting on his laurels

27th February 2019, 13:50 by Craig Smithson

Terence Kongolo has urged his Huddersfield team-mates to build on their late victory against Wolves and try and go on a winning run.

Steve Mounie struck in the first minute of added time as Huddersfield clinched their first victory in three months, having registered just one point from their previous 14 Premier League matches.

"We did well. We fought until the end and now we finally have some (more) points," Kongolo said.

"I'm happy for everyone. Everyone is fighting, so on to the next game. It's good for the confidence.

"But we have to take this to the next game. We have to stay focused. This game is over, we must focus on the next one."

The Terriers travel to Brighton on Saturday 11 points adrift of safety at the foot of the table and the Holland international refused to be drawn on whether they can pull off a Great Escape.

"Game after game we will look. We don't look too far," he said. "This (win) is nice. Everyone is happy, the fans, the staff, everyone, so it was good to see.

"The supporters lift us every week, even when we lose. They are always with us and I'm happy about that. It's very positive.

"But we have to keep this going and the next game we have to try and do the same."

Kongolo was delighted for manager Jan Siewert, who had lost his first four games in charge after replacing David Wagner in January.

"I'm happy for him that he has his first win," Kongolo added. "I'm happy for the new manager that he got these points at the John Smith's Stadium and let's hope in our next game away he can get some more points."
