Carlos Corberan on the problems Sheffield Wednesday's low block caused Huddersfield Town

Huddersfield Town coach Carlos Corberan had to settle for a point at Hillsborough after admitting his side lacked the final pass to break down Sheffield Wednesday's low block.

FRUSTRATIONS: Carlos Corberan wanted to see a better final ball from Huddersfield Town

The Terriers had more of the ball against hosts on the back of a seven-game losing streak, but it was the Owls who took the lead through a good goal from Josh Windass, and although Town equalised thriough a Callum Paterson own goal, they did not do enough to claim all three points.

“It wasn't easy because they defended close to their box and were very compact,” said Corberan.

“At times it's better to be a bit more patient, a bit more calm because you are going to avoid counter-attacks too. You need to be looking to score goals but we couldn't find the last pass. We found it sometimes on the left but not enough on the right or in the middle and that's why we didn't create enough chances.

“The low block was very difficult to open.”

The goal came from a wide player in Windass, and Corberan admitted he had taken a risk in going like for like with the opposition's 3-4-3 formation.

“We came here with the idea to take the three points with maybe a more aggressive style than we usually have,” he said. “We knew with a new coach they wanted to play from the back and the idea was to play with a lot of determination and a high press and that;s exactly what happened in the first 30 or 35 minutes. We didn't create any clear chances but the feeling was that we were closer to the game than they were.

“But at the same time we knew they had fast wingers and could counter-attack.

“It was my decision to leave one centre-back marking each winger and we knew their wingers could be faster than our centre-backs. We didn't defend an attack well and they scored a goal that made the game more difficult.

“When they scored the goal they started to go into a low block and made it harder for us to change the game.

“In the second half I took off a centre-back (Rarmani Edomnds-Green), brought on a winger (Isaac Mbenza) and tried to attack more but I don't think in the second half we created enough chances. We didn't score at the time we were attacking better and we weren't creating chances at that moment.

“At the end both sides could have scored so it was a fair result.”

Huddersfield had an extra dimension when they brought striker Yaya Sanogo off the bench but Corberan said: “The medical advice was not to start with him so we are going to use the next few weeks to get him ready.”

With no game at the weekend because scheduled opponents Bournemouth are in the FA Cup, then an international break, Huddersfield have 17 days to get Sanogo, who joined as a free agent this month, up to speed.
