Spirit the key for Town skipper

9th January 2019, 11:24 by Jack Ogalbe

Huddersfield captain Tommy Smith believes the spirit within the squad can play a vital role in their survival bid.

After finishing 16th in their debut season in the Premier League, Town have struggled this time around and currently sit rock bottom of the table with only two wins all season.

David Wagner has done his best to remain upbeat but defeat on Saturday at Cardiff would make their survival task far more complicated.

Despite their plight, Huddersfield have continued to battle and Smith's attitude has epitomised the atmosphere within the camp.

A hamstring injury is currently troubling the 26-year-old and the skipper has been in and out of the side this season, but says that has not dented his enthusiasm.

He feels the way in which everyone within the squad is pulling together is positive and has urged his colleague to keep fighting for each other.

"Whether you're in the squad or out of the squad, you have to be there for each other; that's what makes us strong," said Smith, in an interview with the club's matchday magazine, The Terrier.

"Other sides have individuals in their team, but we have to make sure we have a full squad fighting in the same direction.

"I've spoken to the head coach about togetherness numerous times and I think, at times like this, it needs to come through - we need to show how together we are as a team and as a club.

"No-one said it was ever going to be easy, competing in the Premier League against these kinds of teams, but this is what we work for every single day."
