CALUM WOODS says he and his Huddersfield Town teammates are ready for a vital week on the training ground as they bid to iron out the defensive problems undermining the bid for automatic promotion.
Town, fourth in League I, twice let slip a lead in the 2-2 home draw against basement side Rochdale, meaning they have now drawn 13 matches after being in a winning position this season.
“We shouldn’t have conceded the goals we did,” said the defender after Andrew Tutte, then Ashley Grimes, cancelled out home strikes by Danny Ward and Jordan Rhodes, his 33rd of the campaign, in front of 12,142.
“It’s happened all too often and it is frustrating us as much as anyone.
“Rochdale didn’t play like a side at the bottom of the table, but we should have won the game without a doubt.”
Town are next in action at Colchester on Saturday and manager Simon Grayson has pledged to use the free week to work in tightening up the defensive effort.
“It’s been a busy spell of late and a lot of our sessions have been match-specific,” added Woods, who started at left-back but switched to the right when Jack Hunt was forced off with an ankle injury.
“This is a chance to work on our organisation and communication.
“We’re scoring goals, and we know that by keeping sides out we will start picking up the wins we need.”
