Mark Robins issued a post-match apology to Huddersfield Town supporters and admitted his side’s performance in their 2-0 home defeat by Ipswich was “absolutely abject”.

First-half goals by Paul Anderson and Daryl Murphy pushed Robins’s side closer to the Championship drop zone.

They remain 17th, but are only seven points above third-bottom Millwall, with a tough trip to play-off chasing Derby to come on Saturday.

Robins, whose side have gone eight games without a win, said his total focus is on that Pride Park fixture, and ensuring whichever side he picks produce a much-improved display.

“I have to apologise to our fans because that was horrendous and as bad as I have seen from any team of mine,” he said.

 

“It will be sorted out. I know where the frailties are and I know what action we need to take. I am focused on what I need to do before Saturday.

“The players know exactly how I feel and they have got to respond. They were overawed against Ipswich, and it can’t happen again.

“They have to go out and show some steel, some determination, some graft and the will to win that Ipswich showed.”

The match was seen by a ticket-issued crowd of 11,857, with 560 travelling fans, and many home supporters left before the end.
