Jan Siewert retains Premier League survival belief

Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert says his side can pull off a great escape after overcoming Wolves on Tuesday to secure the first win of his tenure.

Steve Mounie’s injury-time strike proved the difference as he latched on to a rebound after Karlan Grant’s initial effort was blocked, with Huddersfield claiming a 1-0 success.

The Terriers picked up their first victory under Siewert, who replaced David Wagner as boss in January, but they remain in deep trouble.

Huddersfield are bottom of the Premier League table and 11 points adrift of safety – and they could fall further behind by the time they play again if Southampton see off Fulham on Wednesday.

Siewert is well aware the odds are stacked against Huddersfield but he insists they can still pull clear of the bottom three.

“Since the time I arrived, I said we still have a chance and we believe that,” he said.

“There are still games to go. We will keep on fighting. “My thoughts are just with the boys. They made me so proud. They deserve it so much. I think we can all be proud to be Huddersfield this evening.”

Huddersfield are 1.10 to finish bottom of the table and Fulham, who are three points better off, are priced at 4.00. Siewert’s side head to Brighton at the weekend and are 5.00 to make it back-to-back wins, Albion are 1.80 to come out on top and a draw is 3.50.
