Mark Robins has urged his Huddersfield Town players to bring the feelgood factor back to the John Smith’s Stadium by beating Ipswich tomorrow.

While the Suffolk side, defeated 2-0 at Blackburn on Saturday, will be aiming to keep alive their hopes of making the Championship play-offs, Town are desperate to end a winless run which now goes back seven matches.

Joe Mason’s stoppage-time strike condemned them to a 1-0 home loss to Bolton which was frustrating for the manager and Town supporters in a tickets-issued 15,120 crowd alike.

 

“I think we’d have been disappointed to have drawn 0-0, never mind lost,” said the boss, whose side are 17th, 10 points above the drop zone and joint bottom of the form table.

“We battered them in terms of possession and chances created, but then showed frailties.

“It’s very difficult to take when you are so dominant then concede a corner at the death and don’t defend it properly.

“Players must take responsibility to carry out the jobs they are assigned.

“We had some decent passages of play, good spells of possession and moved the ball pretty well at times.

“But we need to find that bit of cut and thrust.

“We had good opportunities in good areas of the pitch but we were unable to make that count.

“We need to be better and we need results to improve.

Robins continued: “Some of the stuff I look at I like, some if it I don’t.

“We need to keep working and we will certainly stick to our passing principles.

“We have another game coming quickly – let’s turn it round.”
