Carlos Corberan cannot fault Huddersfield Town effort, but Barnsley deserved their win

Carlos Corberan had no complaints after his Huddersfield Town side lost 1-0 at home to Barnsley.

The visitors dominated the chances, imposing their style of play on the Terriers who defended well to keep them at arm's length – helped by two goalline clearances from Naby Sarr and Michal Helik heading against the crossbar – but caused little threat at the other end, with only one shot on target all night.

The effort could not be faulted, but Corberan's side were not good enough to seriously trouble a side bound for the play-offs.

“I think they deserved the three points more than us, even if the team competed a lot,” admitted Corberan.

“We tried to get Josh Koroma in the space in the back but we didn't do it enough times in the game.

“In the second half they were better than us doing exactly what they can do. We couldn't create the chances.

“In some moments before they scored the game was too open and you felt if we had a counter-attack, they would have another chance.

“They started to use the set pieces very well and in one of the transition moments they scored their goal.

“We tried to change the dynamic of the game and attack more but it was not enough to get anything positive."
