Huddersfield Town

Wagner defiant after Town loss

3rd January 2019, 03:21 by Michael Holland

David Wagner has refused to accept his Huddersfield side are doomed to relegation after their 2-1 home defeat to Burnley.

Burnley came from behind against Wagner's 10-man Terriers to secure back-to-back Premier League wins as Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes cancelled out Steve Mounie's first-half opener.

The Clarets climbed out of the bottom three up to 16th, while Huddersfield remain rooted to the foot of the table, with just 10 points from 21 games and eight adrift of safety.

"This is exactly what makes it so exciting. To be the first one, to beat the statistics," Wagner said after his side set a new club record of eight straight defeats.

"This is exactly what we have done a few times in the last few years. This is why we do this job, to be the first one who will do something that nobody has done before.

"We know how difficult this task is. Obviously it's so difficult nobody has done it before, but this doesn't change that we have our plan, our schedule until the end of the season.

"We have to make ourselves independent from the statistics, even if they are the truth."
