COACH Ian Miller says the new management team under Simon Grayson were fortunate to take over a team doing well in the League I standings and with plenty of talent on board.
For that, he says previous boss Lee Clark deserves masses of credit.
“I spoke to Lee when I got the job and I also texted him after the final at Wembley,” said Miller.
“What he did was get a fantastic spirit among the players and they have been a joy to work with.
“Sometimes the players who are not in the team can be a problem, but that’s not the case here. There are no bad apples, and even the lads who don’t make the bench are fantastically supportive.
“That’s all helped us win promotion. The final was very close, but I thought we were the better side. The only problem when it goes to penalties is that you need the Gods with you and, thankfully, they were smiling on us.
“That’s brilliant for everyone involved and it’s something for the fans to enjoy and to remember. They are the heartbeat of the club and it’s certainly true at Huddersfield Town.”
