Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner couldn’t fault his players for defeat at Manchester United.
The Terriers lost 3-1 on Wednesday.
“They showed a reaction from last weekend when we were not at our best. Yes, we lost this game, but that was a good performance,” said Wagner.
It may well have been even better for the Terriers, had one of Terence Kongolo or Philip Billing swept one of the early key chances home.
“The supporters have every reason to be proud. I think they could see that the guys worked their socks off and played defensively and offensively some very good football against Man Utd away.
“We have a problem to solve and that’s to use our clear-cut chances and we clinical; this is a problem that we have to work hard for.
“Everything else between both goal that the players have done is very good; the effort, determination and spirit. The players did it in their way.
“We had the best chance in the first half from Kongolo, the last chance in the first half from Philip Billing, where we at least have to the equalizer and I think the second half was even better.
“We got great support today from our supporter and this is how it has to be. We have a chance if we stick together and continue what we started. We have 19 further opportunities; this is the truth.
“What we’ve learned about the first part of the season is that we have a chance against every single team in this league to collect points if we do t in our way.
“If we perform on the level, we’ve shown over recent weeks and, this is the big thing, we learn to use our clear-cut chances.”
