Huddersfield Town

Town still fighting - Siewert

22nd February 2019, 07:45 by Nick Harris

Boss Jan Siewert refuses to accept Huddersfield are doomed and heading for relegation to the Championship.

The Terriers have been cast adrift at the bottom of the Premier League after losing 12 of their last 13 league matches ahead of the clash at fellow strugglers Newcastle this weekend.

They are 14 points adrift of safety with 12 games to go, but Siewert refuses to concede they appear destined for the trapdoor and will be going to St James' Park looking for a result.

"Who writes this?" he said to reporters. "I haven't read this to be fair. You all know it's a difficult situation, but do you like Huddersfield Town? You want us to stay in the Premier League? Then we will go for it.

"This is how I'm thinking. Of course you all have to write what you think, but I'm positive. I know what's happening at the moment and I know it's a difficult task for us, I'm not stupid.

"But it's like we watched Newcastle, we've analysed them, and we've got to go for points there."
