Fans still believe Huddersfield Town have issues to resolve both up front and at the back and are looking for loan signings.
Coach David Wagner’s side have now lost four league and cup matches on the trot and must now travel to a Nottingham Forest side in solid form and fresh from a win at Leeds.
Town were ahead with 10 minutes to go at Preston but ended up losing 2-1, fuelling concern among supporters about the durability of the squad.
Messaging on the Examiner’s Huddersfield Town Facebook page, Darren Wormald feels an extra frontman is the priority.
“Games like these need putting to bed well before the 80th minute,” said Wormald.
“Defensive problems, but it highlights our lack of clinical finishing.
“In this division any team can score against any other, but the teams that do well are often those who have a high conversion ratio of chances created to goals scored.
“The front line is sorely missing a top striker to complement Nahki Wells.”
Felix Mitchell was in agreement.
“We had lots of chances (at Preston),” he said.
“Played very well for most of the game, but the attack needs to put more chances away.
“We do need to improve the defence though!
“Just a killer to concede two late goals – UTT.”
John Bailey fears Town are going to get dragged back into a relegation battle.
“What the hell is going on with the Town’s defending?” he asked.
“Should have fixed it during the window. Defence needs looking at first, far too many stupid goals we’re conceding at the moment.
“Hoping that we can bring in an experienced centre half in on loan.
“Maybe defensive mid to stop the ball coming through the middle too easily. Yet another end of season ‘squeaky bum’ time.”
Yorkshire Dale was livid, labelling Town’s defence a ‘calamity’, while Sean Wood said simply: “Can’t believe we threw that away.”
Joe, from Marsh, commenting on www.examiner.co.uk/sport , said: “Same old problems keep resurfacing week in week out!
“We have to learn to defend better get the ball up field quicker and capitalise on our chances.
“Wells is a top striker, but we must play someone up alongside him.”<p/> <p/> <p/> <p/> <p/>
