Huddersfield Town

Terriers' spell irks Clark

5th March 2019, 16:42 by Alex Jack

Lee Clark is adamant he would have been able to take Huddersfield to the Championship had he not been axed back in 2012.

The former Norwich City assistant left Carrow Road to take the manager's job at Huddersfield in 2008 and enjoyed four years of going close to getting the West Yorkshire outfit promoted.

Clark has been speaking about his time with the Terriers and feels that had his tenure not been cut short, he could have guided Town to the second tier of English football back then.

"Yeah 100 per cent. I believe we might've needed the playoffs that they ended up going through on penalties. I've had people say it's about being a good manager but also about being a lucky manager," he told Tribalfootball.

"So the previous year we got to the semi-final final, and we got hit with a couple of quick goals against Peterborough and lost the final the year after in quite an even game after beating Bournemouth on penalties.

"But we were in a great position, fourth in the league, when I left in February time and I certainly believe we could've got up and probably would've got up in automatic promotion, if not definitely through the playoffs."
