Grayson 'Players have a point to prove'

Grayson 'Players have a point to prove'

Simon Grayson wants to see his Huddersfield Town side bounce back from successive defeats with a victory at home to Bristol City on Saturday.

The terriers suffered successive away defeats at Peterborough and Millwall, two previous league one foes, and Grayson thinks that the players certainly will have a point to prove on Saturday afternoon against The Robins.

Town have conceded seven goals in the last two games, scoring only once, and will be without Jack Hunt for the next two games as he misses out through suspension.

Grayson spoke to htafc.com ahead of the game:

"Saturday is an opportunity to get back to winning ways on home territory'

'We have got a good group who don`t lose matches through a lack of effort. Sometimes their hearts rules their heads and they do make mistakes, but we had a meeting on Monday and training has been good since. The group is always trying to improve and they do hurt when results go against them - especially the Millwall result. I think some of the players will have a point to prove on Saturday.

"Every game in the Championship is going to be a tough test and each team poses a different kind of challenge. We want to try and replicate the performance against Wolves. There were spells in both the Peterborough and Millwall games where we played well and on a different day the outlook of the results may have been different."

'We can`t be complacent against Bristol City because they have some good players. They have scored plenty of goals this season, but they have conceded a few. I am sure they will have been working hard on the training ground to try and rectify that. It will be up to us to produce a performance that is good enough to win the game."


It is probably a fair assessment from the gaffer, as the result at Millwall probably didn't really reflect the game but he needs to put the steel back into the defence as Town simply crumbled towards the end of the match.

The Peterborough game was probably made too personal and eternally set up for a disappointing result, however it is how the group responds and bounces back from disappointment that will shape the season.

Anyone can beat anyone in this division, we have seen that already! Town are currently punching well above their expectations and we must all take the rough with the smooth, whilst knowing the players will be giving it their all - which after all is the minimum we would all expect.

So on to Saturday - 3 points please!
