Huddersfield Town’s captain Johnathan Hogg states, “we’re not dead and buried yet” as the club face a tough period of games  

The Terriers’ parted ways with their third manager in a year and Hogg vows that every player will give 110 percent til the end.

Huddersfield make the trip to Lancashire tomorrow with interim manager Narcis Pelach after the midweek departure of Mark Fotheringham, following their 2-2 draw against the ten men of Blackpool.

Hogg admits that the team threw away the result against Blackpool, but also reiterated that the players do care and opened up on what was said in the dressing room after the game,

“If there were a fly on the wall they would’ve found it quite entertaining on what was said in the dressing room after the game, there was a lot of passion, fight, commitment – which we all know we have and its quite nice to see that, you look around the dressing room and see that the lads do care and it’s a game that we threw away, we need a reaction and we need to bounce back.” Said Hogg.

The last time Pelach took charge of the Terriers was following Carlos Corberan’s departure and opened his first interim period with a win against Cardiff City in mid-September, and many will be hoping that lightening can strike twice for the Terriers, as they face fellow relegation battlers Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium tomorrow.

Hogg also made aware that there’s certain things in the team that need to be addressed and sorted out quickly if they are to avoid relegation,

“Anyone one could score at any time, the league could look so much different if we hadn’t conceded so many late goals and its cost us a lot of points, we could be five or six points better off than we are right now. Is it concentration, confidence, fitness, I cant put a finger on it but it needs to be sorted sooner rather than later.”

Hogg who has spent 10 years as a central midfielder at the club and has been captain since 2021 under Carlos Corberan, relishes the challenge that lays ahead but pleads with the fans to stay with them as he pointed out,

“It’s all well and good when your winning every week, but when your backs against the wall we need as many fighters and people as we can, so please just stick with us and we can guarantee that we will give a 110 percent and give all the fight we’ve got.”

And he continued to say, “no one wants to be playing League One football next season, we’ve seen teams go down and struggled to get back up.”
