JOEL LYNCH says it’s down to Huddersfield Town’s players to put things right at home to Bristol City on Saturday after successive defeats on the road.
Beaten 3-1 at Peterborough last Tuesday, Town suffered their heaviest league loss since March 2010 when they slumped 4-0 at Millwall on Saturday to drop to ninth in the Championship.
It meant a miserable return for Lynch, who made his first start in seven matches after suspension and injury, beginning the game at left-back, but switching to the centre of defence after Anthony Gerrard hobbled off.
“It’s a horrible feeling to lose any game, but even worse when it’s 4-0,” said Lynch after a clash which brought a red card and a three-match ban for right-back Jack Hunt, who used foul and abusive language to referee Graham Scott.
“We weren’t good enough and we didn’t act on the information given to us during the build-up.
“We knew how they would play and we had a plan to deal with them but we failed to keep our shape and get caught on the counter too many times.
“That’s down to us as players, and it’s down to us to work hard and make sure we put things right straight away.”
