Smith hoping for more from Huddersfield

4th February 2019, 15:19 by Tom Hill

Huddersfield's Tommy Smith says his side need to take more responsibility for turning around their poor form in the Premier League.

Smith was one of five changes for the Terriers ahead of Saturday's meeting with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The 26-year-old slotted in at right-back but he was unable to stop his team losing 5-0 in London.

Smith admits as club captain he was bitterly disappointed and he has urged everyone to up their game going forward.

He told HTTV: "Everyone has a role to play at this football club - my role probably more so than ever being club captain, something I take great pride in. It is something I want to do, I want to be there for the lads as much as best I can and to help them as much as I can.

"But, as I say, I think everyone needs to start, really, wanting to do it for themselves more than anything now and stand up and be counted. That's the only way results are going to improve and how we are going to do well in the future, by sticking together.

"Everyone doing their own jobs, helping each other out - all that sort of stuff, the togetherness of the club.

"We have always said we have had that at this football club and now we need it more than ever."
