Boss speaks after 1-1 draw
We went 1-0 down to Huddersfield in only the third minute, and after a home defeat four days earlier, the players and supporters showed a stoic resolve to bounce back within five minutes.
Either side could have won the game from then on in, with both Alex McCarthy and Alex Smithies making excellent saves. And with results elsewhere going in our favour, we now have a two-point gap between us and seventh.
Adkins said, "It was challenging the other night, we had to get ourselves ready for this one and we were very positive going into the the game, thinking we could get on the front foot.
"I wrote down in my book about the crowd, they were trying to get things going and get behind the players, which was important.
Alex McCarthy made some really good saves. Smithies made a great save from Pav's diving header and also from Hector's thunderous shot."
The boss made four changes to his starting XI, and was pleased we lifted our performance, although of course he would have preferred all three points.
He reflected, "We wanted to get on the front foot, play with a tempo and give the crowd something to cheer about.
"We needed to get the game quicker to raise the tempo and enthusiasm. Sometimes you have to give the other side credit. Huddersfield play football the right way, control and pass it.
"But we concentrate on us. We've picked up a point, in the second half you'd have to say we ground it, so it's a point and we have to move on from that.
