SIMON GRAYSON is keen to get Huddersfield Town back on the training ground to work on cutting out some of the errors which put his side under added pressure against Nottingham Forest.
The visitors were slick, quick and incisive and Town had to rely on a stoppage-time penalty from Jordan Rhodes to salvage a point after Forest had led through Simon Cox’s fine strike on 68 minutes.
Town worked hard, showed plenty of spirit and determination and were eventually rewarded for their never-say-die attitude – so they have shown against both Cardiff City and Forest they will compete at this level.
It’s that extra edge that Grayson is now looking for in every department as they prepare to meet Burnley – who were beaten 3-2 at Middlesbrough – at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday. “I am delighted with the way that we have competed over the last two matches,” said Grayson, who had Rhodes and Lee Novak up front in a 4-4-2 formation which he later tweaked through necessity.
“We will keep working hard on the training pitch to eradicate errors in our game both going forward and in defence. “We showed good desire and continued to work until the end, though, and that’s the kind of determination I want to instil in the players, because I believe they have it.
