Speaking after the match, Manager Mark Robins said: “The players have been pretty good over the last few weeks, which is difficult for me to say because we haven’t been winning. The two draws prior to today’s game were ok, but we should have picked up wins. We aren’t far away, but ultimately we haven’t won the game. We are too profligate with our chances.”

“We dominated the match, but again we are talking about similar fragilities,” said Mr. Robins. “We have failed to take chances and then have not defended a corner correctly.

“The players are assigned jobs and they haven’t done them from the corner; it is what they get paid to do. We would have been disappointed if the game had finished 0-0; it is tough to take.

“Everybody could see that we created a lot of chances and had decent passages of play, but we needed that killer instinct. We had very good opportunities in good areas and we weren’t able to make them count, which is frustrating.”

Huddersfield will next face Ipswich Town at John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday, April 8.
