Depoitre says Terriers lack confidence

Huddersfield Town 1 Birmingham City 1

By Mark Walker

Striker Laurent Depoitre admitted confidence has been affected by Huddersfield's six-game winless run in the Premier League.

The Terriers were installed as odds-on favourites for relegation after their latest defeat at Stoke, while a much-changed line-up was on Saturday held to a draw by Sky Bet Championship strugglers Birmingham in the FA Cup.

"The confidence could be better because we haven't won for a few games," said Depoitre, who did not feature in Saturday's fourth round tie as a consequence of David Wagner making seven changes.

"We know we can win against good teams so we have to be positive and work and the points will come."

Wagner was keen to give fringe players game time in the cup tie, but the Terriers' disjointed display was punctuated by misplaced passes and poor first touches.

"Yes, but there were a lot of players who haven't played much this season so it's difficult when all of the team doesn't know each other very well. I think we have to see the positive things," Depoitre said.

"Normally when we score first we manage the game better and win it, but it happens. We will be ready for the replay."

Huddersfield, two points clear of the bottom three, must first bid to halt their slide in the top flight against Liverpool at the John Smith's Stadium tomorrow.
