Jan Siewart says his players “want to go on with it” at Brighton on Saturday after securing his first win as the new Huddersfield Town manager on Tuesday.

The Terriers head coach saw his side beat Wolves 1-0 in midweek, their first win since November.

They are still stranded at the bottom of the Premier League table, 13 points adrift of safety, but Siewart is hoping that, having had one win, another will follow very soon.

Ahead of the trip to the south coast to take on the Seagulls, the Terriers head coach said of the last-minute victory over Wolves: “The players deserved it so much and I really enjoyed winning with them.

“We want to go on with it, everyone at the club who backed me is working hard for it. It was a massive experience for me, but I’m happy the players got what they deserved. “Everyone is enjoying it at the moment, we are in a good mood and we’d like to continue.”

On Saturday Town face a Brighton side also in trouble at the wrong end of the Premier League table. Chris Hughton’s side are just two points above the bottom three and go into the weekend without a league victory so far in 2019.

Siewart, however, is aware of their strengths and is expecting a tough game.

“I analysed Brighton directly after our game, so I know what they are about, and I know it’ll be a tough game for us,” he added. “We know why we go there and what our aim is.”

Huddersfield are 5.00 for the win with Brighton 1.83 and the draw 3.30.

Town had Isaac Mbenza, Danny Williams and Adama Diakhaby missing for Tuesday’s match while they will also be without Tommy Smith on Saturday with the defender suspended.

Brighton are 8.00 to be relegated at the end of the season with Southampton 9.00.
