Huddersfield Town

Terriers star upbeat on survival chances

31st December 2018, 14:46 by Alex Jack

Philip Billing says the Huddersfield squad must remain positive as they look to avoid the drop this season.

The West Yorkshire outfit find themselves rock bottom of the Premier League table after a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of fellow strugglers Fulham last time out.

With Burnley heading to the John Smith's Stadium on Wednesday, midfielder Billings has called on the squad to stay upbeat and feels hard work will get them out of their current predicament.

"We can't be too disappointed (for too long) because we have another game coming up and we have to recover and get ready for that, and hopefully the fans will stick with us and support us at home," said Billing.

"It's a strain (being where we are), but nobody ever told us it was going to be easy in the Premier League.

"Last season we survived and I don't see why we can't again, taking every game at a time we just need that one game to turn it around and get that win. Once we get that anything can happen.

"Right now it seems it's hard, but we have to show some character and just keep being positive."
