A disappointing result for Huddersfield Town. After a strong battle against Stoke City, it wasn’t enough to take home a win.
The first half was slow, with not much really appearing from either side, just a couple of shots here and there but nothing to write home about. Then as we entered the second half, we saw things start to get interesting.
In the 47th minute, a goal from Toffolo put Huddersfield in a great position, but this didn’t last long for The Terriers. Only 3 minutes later, a bullet header from Jacob Brown put the game level pegging, leaving Town star struck.
After this, we really saw Stoke control the game and put the pressure onto Huddersfield. Around 15 minutes after the equaliser, Stoke fired a ball into the box where Huddersfield defender Matty Pearson put it into the back of his own net, which was the game’s last goal, leaving it a close 2-1 to Huddersfield.
I think the fair result would have been a draw for this game just due to the number of chances and shots that Huddersfield did create in the game compared to Stoke, but at the end of the day, it’s about how many are put in the back of the net and Huddersfield just couldn’t find it.
It was an unfortunate result for Huddersfield and one that will undoubtedly be disappointing for the team after putting up such a strong performance against The Potters.
I think that overall that this was a good performance from Huddersfield despite what the result was. The Terriers stayed strong throughout the match, and I believe that if there was some more time, then Huddersfield might have been able to find the net to make the game 2-2.
There is now only a couple of days before the next game for Huddersfield, which will be played against Blackpool on Tuesday night. This is going to be a challenging game for Huddersfield as Blackpool just managed to beat the top of the table team Fulham FC. So, these small mistakes that Huddersfield Town is making will not be wasted, and the Terriers are really going to have to fight for this one.
