David Wagner bemoans Huddersfield’s mistakes

Huddersfield Town coach David Wagner insists his team deserved nothing after giving away goals during their 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth on Tuesday night.

The Terriers went into the game on the back of a disappointing defeat to Brighton and failed to bounce back at the Vitality Stadium.

Bournemouth capitalised on poor defending on two occasions as Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser fired the home side into a two-goal lead.

Wagner’s men did show signs of a fightback by grabbing a goal before half-time, with Terence Kongolo finding the back of the net.

However, Huddersfield missed further chances and Wagner accused his troops of handing out early Christmas presents.

“This is very frustrating,” he told Sky Sports. “It is very disappointing. To make it totally clear, I don’t think we deserved anything out of this game because you need your defence and offence to work.

“It was Christmas for Bournemouth because we gave away presents at both ends of the pitch, even if performance-wise it was another top-class away performance.

“We controlled big parts and we dominated them. We had enough opportunities to score at least two. We needed to score three or four today, but we didn’t take them and that is why we have no rewards in terms of points.

“The first goal was a referee decision again where I ask ‘why was this a foul?’ It was anything but a foul from my point of view and we conceded after this free-kick. It’s frustrating and it doesn’t help.”
