Williams wants to move on quickly with Cup tie beckoning

Midfielder looks back at Terriers defeat

Reading were on the wrong end of a 3-1 scoreline at Huddersfield on Tuesday evening, and midfielder Danny Williams wants to move on from the disappointment of defeat quickly and to turn the attention to Friday night’s FA Cup tie against Crystal Palace.

It was the fourth meeting with the Terriers of the campaign; the most recent was in fact Reading’s first hurdle of the FA Cup run, and a 5-2 win in the replay was the start of our latest cup adventure.

Ola John netted Reading’s consolation on the evening – Nahki Wells, James Paterson and Flo Bojaj had put the hosts into a commanding position with second-half goals.

“It’s frustrating and disappointing – but that’s how it is,” reflected Williams after the defeat.  “Huddersfield were the better team today and deserved all three points.  But we’ll go again.

“A Tuesday night in Huddersfield is tricky – every game in this division is tough.  We experienced it before when we came here – they are a playing side that like to keep the ball and they made it hard for us.  They pressed high and just got the better of us today.

“We were trying to get back into the game, but we shouldn’t leave these spaces open on the pitch, especially away from home.  For the second goal they broke on us from the counter, which shouldn’t happen away.

“For a lot of players it was good to get game-time – although we shouldn’t use that as an excuse.  But we should forget this night quickly and move on.”
