Huddersfield Town midfielder Conor Coady has described the club’s defeat to Leeds United in September as “the worst day of the season by a country mile.”
The 21-year-old said United’s rampant 3-0 win at Elland Road was a “massive downer” and “hurt us as a team” as both clubs began looking ahead to their second meeting of the term at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.
Leeds took advantage of a feeble Town performances as goals from Rodolph Austin, Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara sealed an easy success on September 20,
Town have improved under the management of Chris Powell, however, and Coady said: “They didn’t see the real Huddersfield Town at Elland Road. We’ve spoken about it before and we hated it as a club, as a team.
“It was the worst day of the season by a country mile so for us, (Saturday) is about amending the errors that we made at Elland Road.
“The lads know how much it hurt us as a team and what a massive downer it was on the season.”
