Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner praised the character and determination shown by his side, following the 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Terriers boss was delighted with the way his side bounced back from an unlucky Jonas Lossl own goal, as the Yorkshiremen moved a step closer to Premier League safety.

He said, “The whole team showed great character to come back into the game in these circumstances and at this stage of the season.

“When you play Brighton away from home with this crowd and come back from 1-0 down, then that’s better than good. I am happy with the performance and I take a point.

“We really wanted to press them high away from goal and have possession of the ball. We did that very well, even though we were on the back foot in the first three of four minutes, and were lucky in this period of the game.”

Wagner lay no blame to Lossl following Albion’s opener, as Solly March’s strike  took a nick off the goalkeeper’s head before going in.

“He responded and recovered after this unlucky goal. I wouldn’t say it was a mistake because he [March] shot between the legs of the opponent and saw the ball very late.

“It’s an unlucky situation and he showed what a great professional he is with his performance.”

Huddersfield now face back-to-back home games against Watford and Everton before a daunting triple header against Manchester Chelsea and Arsenal to end the season, but Wagner insists no game is more important than the other.

“Home advantage is big for us, but no game in the Premier League is easy and this is the case in the last fixtures of the season.

“We face tough opponents, but Watford will be too. The players have put in a good performance away from home and we can build from this. Our home stadium will be bouncing for sure.”
