Siewert makes job difficulty admission

11th March 2019, 10:36 by Craig Smithson

Jan Siewert claims he will "fight with the right attitude" despite witnessing the difficulty of the Huddersfield job at first hand.

The Terriers chief watched as goals from Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser scored the goals to give Bournemouth a 2-0 win against his side at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.

The result means Siewert has lost six of his seven games in charge, with just one win since replacing David Wagner in January.

The Terriers are now 16 points from safety with eight games remaining and Siewert was furious with his side's display, describing it as "not acceptable".

The German said he knew he had taken on a tough challenge, but he is not ready to throw in the towel.

"I knew that this job was very difficult," he added. "Each time in the games, the players have responded and tried to play the football.

"But today, I did not see it in the summary of this game. I am 36 years old and I knew this would be difficult. But I am brave and I am a fighter and I will still fight with the right attitude."
