Huddersfield failed to break down a resilient Birmingham defence in one of the uneventful football results of the weekend in the Championship. Birmingham’s goal drought continued under Lee Bowyer as their defence helped them break their three-match losing streak. Huddersfield looked the better of the two teams as they sought their third win in four games. It was only the woodwork that denied them on two occasions as Frazier Campbell who came on as a substitute in the 75th minute. His first shot hit the left post while his second shot in the 90th minute hit the right post.
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: The Championship is a marathon and I watched my team compete very well. We want to be a team that defends well and attacks well. The key is to use the ball better to produce more chances. But it is not always easy. We were controlling Birmingham from a physical point of view. But the last action in their box didn’t work as we wanted. When I imagined how we would play the game, I imagined it would be like this.”
Birmingham’s Lee Bowyer: “I have never had a team that have gone so long without scoring. If you go to two games, it’s unusual. My teams always score. I feel for them but there are positives to take. It would have been easy for them to hide. But they are not; they are fighting for everything and the players need credit for that.”
