Siewert wants total commitment

25th February 2019, 15:28 by Neil Foster

Huddersfield manager Jan Siewert has demanded his players give their all for the club’s loyal fans who have stuck with them.

The Terriers look destined to drop into the Championship next season as they sit 14 points adrift of safety at the foot of the Premier League standings.

Saturday's 2-0 reverse at Newcastle means the supporters have not witnessed a victory since their heroes beat Wolves 2-0 away from home on November 25 last year.

Siewart replaced David Wagner in the John Smith's Stadium dugout but his arrival has had no effect on results, with four straight defeats since he took the helm and they will try again on Tuesday night when Wolves are the visitors to west Yorkshire.

While it seems forlorn hope that Huddersfield will avoid relegation, Siewart has urged his men to show some backbone to give the club's faithful something to cheer about.

"A win would mean so much for everyone, especially the supporters. How they have backed us ever since I’ve been here is incredible to me," he told reporters on Monday.

"The least that everyone deserves at this club is that everyone gives 100%. We have to run like hell and after Newcastle I was disappointed. The players who signed for Huddersfield have at least have to fight to stay in the Premier League.

"We had 2,000 fans in Newcastle, they deserve it so much. You have to fight. I told the players I wasn’t pleased with that situation. We will need fresh legs against Wolves."
