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."
