Anthony Gerrard says Huddersfield Town are desperate to “wrap up” Championship survival as soon as possible.

The defender knows a three-point haul at basement side Yeovil this afternoon will be a major tonic in the bid to ensure second-tier football for a third successive season.

Town, 17th and five points above the drop zone, are seeking a first win in 11 games after being denied by Bruno Saltor’s 83rd-minute
leveller in Friday’s 1-1 home draw with play-off chasing Brighton.           

 

Yeovil drew 0-0 at Blackburn and have just one win in 10.

“There are no easy games, especially at this stage of the season, when so many sides are fighting for something,” said Gerrard.

“We’re taking nothing for granted, but we know we can go there and win if we work hard.

“You have to do that before trying to put any other gameplan into operation.”

Looking back at the Brighton game, the 28-year-old centre-back added: “It was disappointing to concede so late on after defending so valiantly.

“But in the context of the overall game, it was a good point.”

Gerrard continued: “We’ve had a disappointing second half of the season, but we’re still a relatively small Championship club trying to do things the right way.

“That can be hard against sides who want to stop you, and we have sometimes been a bit naive, but we are learning.”
