KENNY JACKETT believes Town have the ability to cause any team in League I problems.
But the Millwall manager thought his side should have had at least a point from last night’s game.
“We were neither outclassed or overawed and I think it was there for us,” said the former Swansea chief.
“The start and end of the match were the best periods for us.
“We played some constructive football, created some chances, showed some pace to get in behind Huddersfield and also showed some promise.
“What we failed to do was convert any of our opportunities into goals and that’s the bottom line.
“Huddersfield, who were once again strong at set-pieces, put one chance away, and that was the difference.”
Asked for his views on the penalty, netted by Luke Beckett in the 29th minute after he had been fouled by Zak Whitbread, who was shown a yellow rather than red card, Jackett responded: “Some of the lads said it was outside the box.
“But I couldn’t see from where I was, so I’ll have to trust the referee’s judgement, and I didn’t have any complaints about his display.”
While Jackett’s last head-to-head with Town chief Andy Ritchie before last night’s clash was the 2006 play-off final, in which his Swansea side lost to Ritchie’s Barnsley on penalties, his current side are firmly in a League I survival scrap.
Last night’s defeat left them just a point and a place above the relegation zone, but Jackett is defiant over their chances.
“If we keep working on our finishing in training and keep creating chances in matches, things will turn for us,” he added.
“We have some good young players and some experience, and while we know it’s going to be tough, it’s crucial that we scrap our way to safety this season.
“If we can do that, I’m confident this club can come again.”
League I managers Gary McAllister (Leeds) and Lee Sinnott (Port Vale) were among last night’s crowd.
