Many fans were pleased with the way Huddersfield Town competed against Sheffield Wednesday – but disappointed by the lack of action in the visitors’ penalty area.

A 1-0 defeat inflicted by Fernando Forestieri’s late goal left David Wagner's Town 18th in the Championship ahead of their tough-looking trip to second-placed Middlesbrough.

Chris Schofield said on the Examiner’s Huddersfield Town Facebook page: “We looked as good as Wednesday throughout. Under Chris Powell we would have capitulated and got battered.

“We are really making massive progress and but for an arm on the line, (Philip) Billing would have been on the scoresheet and we would have got the point we deserved.”

Andy, from Heckmondwike, wrote: “Town battled well and deserved at least a point!

“The difference was they had more attacking options whereas we just had poor Nahki Wells.

“I think we should have started with Sean Scannell and Jamie Paterson.”

Bill, from Birkby, felt Town were too respectful.

“We did not press like normal and rarely built up any head of steam, so a strangely-subdued performance,” he said.

“The difference between the two teams was up front, where their three (I’m including the man-mountain substitute) made Wells look lightweight.

“But the defence is improving and I wouldn’t criticise them for (conceding) a well-worked goal.”

Neil, of Holmfirth, wrote: “It was a good game, and there wasn’t much between the teams or many chances.

“There were two big ones – they scored and ours was cleared off the line and that was the only difference.”

Chris Green, of Dalton, said: “A valiant effort, but that one moment of coruscating quality from Forestieri slackened our tight-knit backline.

“While I am eulogising the defence’s display, I do believe we sat back in our own half incessantly, with the intention of fortuitously finding Wednesday off guard at the back. “Accordingly, our attacks were deprived of the conventional adroitness.”

Big Dan, of Birkby, was frustrated by what he saw as Forestieri’s gamesmanship.

“Forgive me if I’m wrong but isn’t diving a bookable offence?” he wrote.

Dan also suggested: “A fully-fit James Vaughan would have thrived in this team.”

Dick, of Waterloo, said: “The difference was Forestieri. Love him or loathe him, his finish was class.”

Alison, from Thurstonland, was disappointed by Town’s display.

“A very poor performance not helped by an uninspiring team selection and several players having an off day,” she wrote.

Karim Matmour was well off the pace, Philip Billing wasn’t as influential as he has been and Joe Lolley, whilst perhaps being our only bright-performing forward player, really needs to lift his head up.”

Dave, also from Holmfirth, remains concerned by Town’s league placing, eight points above to drop zone.

“All we hear from the cub and players is next season,” he said.

“What about the rest of this? We are not safe and could be on the brink of third-bottom by Saturday.

“A reality check for fans and the club is needed.

”There was no lack of effort and perhaps a draw would have been fair but our record against the top eight sides is awful.

“Let’s get safe before harping about next season - WE NEED SOME POINTS!”
