Huddersfield moving in right direction - Wagner

07 October 2018 06:42:43 EST

Huddersfield boss David Wagner says their recent performances show the club are making progress after they moved off the bottom of the table.

The Terriers picked up just their third point of the season as they came from behind to secure a 1-1 draw with Burnley on Saturday.

Christopher Schindler's second-half equaliser was just reward for a battling performance from Huddersfield, who are still searching for their first win of the 2018/19 campaign.

Wagner felt the 2,000-strong away supporters deserved to see the Yorkshire outfit pick up all three points and says Saturday's showing, coupled with their performance in the 2-0 loss to Tottenham the week before, gives reason to believe they can avoid relegation.

"The performance, I think, was at least a nine out of 10," said Wagner. "A 10 I have not seen in football so far, but this was very good. It wasn't perfect because we could have won the game.

"The performances we have shown in recent weeks, though, have been very good , and consistently so.

"This one was another step in the right direction.

"We showed bravery and confidence on the ball, we were patient when needed and we were able to accelerate and to penetrate."

Wagner went on to reveal that midfielder Aaron Mooy suffered a groin injury against Burnley which could keep him out of Australia's upcoming matches during the international break.

Huddersfield still find themselves inside the relegation zone and are 4/11 to go down this term.

The Terriers face a tough test after the international window with Liverpool the next team to visit the John Smith's Stadium.

The Reds are 1/3 to win the match, while Wagner's men are 11/1 and the draw is 17/4.
