Huddersfield news: Mounie up for the fight

11 months ago

In the latest Huddersfield news, Steve Mounie insists the club will fight until the end as they look to retain their spot in the Premier League.

The Terriers made a strong start to life in the top-flight, winning their first two games without conceding a goal, while they went on to draw their third outing 0-0.

However, they have been unable to sustain that kind of form throughout 2017-18 and are in serious danger of suffering an immediate return to the second-tier.

David Wagner’s men sit 16th, four points clear of the bottom three with five games left to play and they are without a win in five.

Just two wins from their last 15 Premier League outings have seen them tumble down the standings over recent months.

Huddersfield play their next two games at the John Smith’s Stadium against Watford and Everton, before wrapping up the campaign against Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Mounie, who has netted seven times in the league during his first season with the club, insists the squad are up for the fight.

“A lot of teams are in the struggle [to stay up] and we are in the struggle, so we will fight to the end,” Mounie told Huddersfield Examiner.

“It will be a great fight against a lot of teams, and we will see which teams will stay.

“The Brighton game was important and in the next games we will try and take the points and hope the others don’t take points.”

Huddersfield beat their next opponents Watford 4-1 when they went head-to-head in Hertfordshire earlier in the season.

Sky Bet have priced them at 13/8 to make it back-to-back victories, while Watford are 9/5 to come out on top and the draw is available at 21/10.
