Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner rues poor finishing after Birmingham draw

Manager praised his side's spirit

David Wagner was disappointed that Huddersfield Town were held at home to Birmingham City but pleased by his players' workrate and attitude.

It took a late Joel Lynch leveller to seal a 1-1 Championship draw at the John Smith's Stadium.

"Of course we wanted to win this game," said Wagner."Not to do that was disappointing but the players should be proud of their effort, fighting spirit and aggressive approach.

"More or less over the whole game we did these things very well.

"They had just one real effort on our goal - and it was a goal.

"We were very strong in our ball control, we had a good balance and avoided nearly all of their counter attacks.

"Our reactive pressure was good and we created our moments, but we had problems with our finishing.

"Their goalkeeper only had to save one shot, from Karim Matmour right at the end."
