Huddersfield Town captain Peter Clarke says Mark Robins' new ethos is starting to pay off - but there's still work to be done.

The 31-year-old speaking at a press conference today (Friday) said the team set itself high standards come the start of the new campaign, which have seen them bag three Championship wins.

And he said Robin's 3-5-2 system - still a 'work in progress' - does suit the team.             

Clarke added: "Four points from the two games is nice. Perhaps we could have had a couple more, but we'll take what we've got - we're still unbeaten at home.

"Tuesday night I thought we played very well - that was after a game on Saturday where we probably weren't as good as the standards we've set.

"But there will be days like that - it's still a work in progress, the way the manager has got us and is wanting us to play.

"The system suits us - it should give the player on the ball more options - be it a centre half, be it a winger, be it a midfield player.             

"Teams come here and their main aim will be to stop us; to frustrate us. That's down to us to work on at the training ground over a period of time and make sure it doesn't happen too often." 

The Terriers overcame a nervy period midweek to beat Charlton 2-1, thanks to a wonder strike from Joel Lynch.

 

But Clarke says he'd like to see more names on the score-sheet come tomorrow's fixture away to Blackburn.

He added: "When you win those close games, it gives you that extra feeling of 'a job well done'.

"Ultimately we've got two strikers at the top of the pitch - one of whom is in great form. It's always nice to have one of those in your team.           

"As a team and a squad, you want teams to be scoring from all areas, so that for the opposition, it's not just about stopping one man - it's about stopping the team collectively."
