Huddersfield Town

New Town boss takes positives

30th January 2019, 03:44 by Michael Holland

Jan Siewert said there were plenty of positives to take from Huddersfield Town's 1-0 home defeat against Everton.

Everton were indebted to goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, who kept out Huddersfield substitute Aaron Mooy's second-half free-kick and then pulled off an even better save to turn away Elias Kachunga's header.

However a goal from Richarlison was enough to earn the visitors all three points and succumbed Town to a 10th defeat in their last 11 Premier League matches. However, the 36-year-old German was upbeat.

"First of all I'm disappointed, but I'm also very positive and thankful that the lads got my ideas so quickly as we could not have had a worst start," he said.

"After that, we created chances and had possibilities and now I definitely know why Pickford is England's number one goalkeeper."

Siewert said he had plenty of positives to take having only replaced David Wagner eight days ago.

He added: "(The players) being low on confidence and then conceding a goal and then coming back with chances and having possibilities to win the game made me really proud."
