HUDDERSFIELD TOWN manager Jan Siewert wants to bring stability back to the Yorkshire club as he prepares for the Sky Bet Championship.

Relegated Town avoided equalling the record for most defeats in a Premier League season by coming from behind to draw 1-1 at Southampton.

Nathan Redmond’s thunderous first-half strike left the rock bottom Terriers in danger of suffering a 29th top-flight loss to cap a miserable campaign.

But a mistake from Saints goalkeeper Angus Gunn allowed Alex Pritchard to equalise 10 minutes into the second period and earn Town their first point on the road in four months.

“I was really pleased with the performance at the end and this builds momentum for us after a tough game against Manchester United (also a 1-1 draw),” said Siewert.

“After such a season, you have to talk about all the things in detail. For me, it’s important to be stable and prepare well for our Championship season.

“We are all ambitious but important for me first is to have a stable spine to the team.”

Huddersfield turned the away end luminous yellow by handing out free shirts to all travelling fans as a reward for their support during a challenging campaign.

Speaking about the Town supporters, Siewert said: “You should make a story just about them this season because they were amazing.

“They are the petrol for us. Big, big credit to them. They were impressive.”
