Mark Robins: Huddersfield boss proud of players despite defeat

Robins' side remain rooted in the Championship relegation zone on goal difference having played a game more than fourth-bottom Sheffield Wednesday.

Chris Eagles scored the only goal of the game as he calmly slotted home after Marvin Sordell pounced on an error by Town captain Peter Clarke.

"I thought we played well," Robins said. "I was proud of the players, I thought they gave me everything.

"In all fairness, tonight's game was not going to be a season-defining game - it was a marker for the remaining games of the season.

"We've given a good account of ourselves, I thought we controlled it for the most part.

"We created a lot of chances but just couldn't get the killer touch.

"You've got to give them credit. They're a good side, they've got top players in the team.

"From our point of view, it was disappointing not to get anything from the game but, having said that, it was a good performance."

Robins added: "There's six games against teams that are around us now in the division that certainly will give us a chance to move out of the area we're in."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
