Siewert reveals Huddersfield still ‘believe’ they can stay up after Wolves win

Huddersfield Town won a game of football for the first time since November tonight, beating Wolves 1-0 at the John Smiths Stadium.

The Terriers went into tonight’s clash having picked up just one point from the last 42 available and ironically it was against Wolves when Huddersfield lasted tasted the sweet taste of victory on November 25.

Striker Steve Mounie would be the hero, finishing from close range in the 91st minute, to hand Siewert his first victory since taking over as manager from David Wagner in January.

The Terriers remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table, however, a whopping 11 points from safety with 10 games left to play, although German coach Siewert reckons his side are still in with a chance of pulling off the greatest of great escapes.

“You can’t believe how much they suffered when they are not winning. They deserved everything form the game. They left their hearts on the pitch,” Siewert told the BBC.

“They showed another face so that’s a big thing for the squad today. As a manager you have to take decisions. I have to do that sometimes. I believe in all of the players and today they showed that.

“Since the time I arrived, I said we still have a chance and we believe that. There are still games to go. We will keep on fighting.

“I am so proud. I know Wolves have so much quality so I knew it would be a difficult game. But they had no shots on target which makes me proud.

“Demeaco Duhaney had a few problems at half-time so I had to take care of him. He played a very good game in the first half. It made me proud to see him on the pitch.

“The staff, all the people who are working here deserve credit. You can feel the atmosphere of celebration. The first win is always special. The people working here are so brilliant, I am proud to be a part of them.

“On Saturday we have to go much more. Nothing changes for me. We have to go on”.
