Stankovic urges togetherness in Terriers survival bid

8th January 2019, 13:13 by Neil Foster

Huddersfield defender Jon Gorenc Stankovic feels unity is the key to turning things around and beating relegation.

The Terriers find themselves sitting rock bottom of the Premier League standings, with only 10 points from 21 games played after losing eight straight matches.

Having defied the odds to remain in England's top division beyond their debut season, the odds are now stacked against David Wagner's side, with an eight-point gap to safety and the proverbial mountain to climb.

The problem has been scoring goals, with just 13 in the league all season while they have conceded 37.

Stankovic has barely featured this term but returned to first-team action in the disappointing 1-0 FA Cup loss to Bristol City.

The 21-year-old is hoping to make much more of a contribution during the second half of the season and has called on everyone at the club to pull together to lift them out of the mire.

"We need to turn this around, stop missing chances and start scoring goals and the results will come, then everything will be different," he said.

"The best thing for the whole team is that we stick together, that we keep with our plan and keep doing everything we can to turn this around.

"It was an amazing feeling for me to play some football again. It’s really good for me personally, but the result was bad. I hope that I took my chance."
