INTERVIEW: Matty Godden Huddersfield Town Reaction

Godden reflects on yesterday's draw...

12 December 2021

Matt Godden’s injury-time equaliser made sure the points were shared in Yorkshire yesterday afternoon, and the Sky Blues man gave his thoughts on the contest.

Despite Danny Ward’s first-half effort to put Huddersfield ahead at the break, Godden’s late goal came as a result of his side’s impressive attitude, according to the Sky Blues striker.

“That’s how we are; we will never ever give up and we have shown that all season,” Matt highlighted.

“The 90th-minute goals are something that we do and that’s just down to never giving up.

“We’ve had it ever since I joined the club; you look back at the League One season, at Christmas we were drawing a few at home and started winning a few away from home at the back end of the season, and there was important goals being scored in the 90th minute.”

While the Sky Blues achieved 22 shots on goal across the entirety of yesterday’s contest, Godden spoke of his belief that City could have returned home with more than one point.

“Looking back on it, we definitely deserved a point, but I don’t think that anyone could have argued if we had walked away from that with all three.

“We played some really good stuff, different stuff as well at times.

“That’s the division, we’ve known about that all year and if you don’t take your chances at this level you get punished.

“We’ll obviously look back on it and see what went wrong, but I don’t think we can argue with the performance. I thought the performance was arguably one of our best away performances all season.”

Next up for Matt is the visit of Stoke City to the Coventry Building Society Arena next Saturday, and the 30-year-old acknowledged the test which his side will face as we approach the season’s midpoint.

“We will go again next week; another tough game at home.

“We will obviously get that game out of the way and see what is to come after that.

"We know that it’s going to be a really tough game next week and if we can pick up three points there and see where we are, we will know what we’re going to need to go for our little push that we want to go on.”
