Siewert admits no magic solution for Terriers

14th March 2019, 14:21 by Neil Foster

Huddersfield manager Jan Siewert admits he cannot wave a magic wand to save his side from the drop but insists they will not give up.

The Terriers will head to the East End of London on Saturday afternoon to face West Ham United, sitting rock bottom of the Premier League standings with only 14 points from 30 games played.

They have been spared the embarrassment of being the team with the worst points tally in Premier League history but it has still been a chastening second season in England’s top division.

Siewert took the reins following David Wagner’s decision to jump ship and he began life at the John Smith's Stadium in a positive frame of mind.

However, despite making all the right noises about pulling off a miraculous escape, the 36-year-old coach now concedes that the game is up as his charges have just not been able to find the back of the net with enough regularity.

"I am not here as a magician," he told Thursday's press conference. "At the moment it’s still about the games we have left.

"I think it’s important to know you cannot just win games with fight but we do have to fight.

"The team has won just four games in a year and there are reasons for it and we have to find solutions for it. We have to score goals."
