No excuses from Town boss

Huddersfield boss Mark Robins conceded his side were “not good
enough” after stuttering to a 1-0 defeat to promotion-chasing
Hull.

George Boyd’s well-taken goal barely 30 seconds after the
half-time interval provided a rare moment of quality in a scrappy
encounter.

Robins believed his side had turned a corner when they beat West
Yorkshire rivals Leeds before the international break, but their
sixth home defeat of the campaign leaves them just points above the
relegation zone.

“We weren’t good enough,” Robins said. “I don’t think it was a
great game by any stretch of the imagination.

“We restricted them to very little, but it’s a difficult
formation to play against, how they play it and with the quality of
players they’ve got, they’re obviously up there for a reason.”

Robins also complained that Town striker James Vaughan had been
fouled in the build-up to Boyd’s winner, but he was reluctant to
blame that for the defeat.

“There was a real push in his back, but we can’t blame incidents
like that, we’ve got to come out and be better than this,” he
added.

“We go to Bolton on Tuesday and have seven games left. It’s an
interesting end to the season.”
