HUDDERSFIELD Town captain Peter Clarke says tomorrow’s home clash with Leicester provides the perfect chance to bounce back after Town were given “a kick up the backside” by Watford.
While Clarke and Co, who would have gone top of the Championship by beating the Hornets, dropped to sixth after a 3-2 defeat at the John Smith’s Stadium, Leicester climbed to fifth after winning 2-1 at Middlesbrough
“We’re disappointed to come away from the game with nothing,” said the skipper after his side fell to Troy Deeney’s 87th-minute penalty.
“It is a kick up the backside, but we can learn from it.
“We were possibly slight favourites coming into the game but there are no easy games in the Championship.
“If you aren’t right at it, there is always the chance of coming unstuck and that happened.
“To have a game so soon after a defeat like that is ideal as we have the chance to put right any wrongs.”

Having led through Oliver Norwood’s third goal in as many games, Town conceded to Fernando Forestieri and Fitz Hall before substitute Alan Lee, on for tiring debutant Jermaine Beckford, headed home to level.
Many Town fans in a 12,964 crowd felt Forestieri went down too easily under the Danny Ward challenge which led to the penalty.
