Greaves: ‘It’s Tough To Take’

18 October 2021

Jacob Greaves doesn’t believe there was a lot between the two teams in the Tigers’ 2-0 away defeat against Huddersfield Town.

Tom Lees and Duane Holmes’ finishes helped secure the Terriers the three points in the Sky Bet Championship.

“It’s tough to take,” said Greaves.

“It was disappointing to concede so early on. It’s hard to get back into the game when they’ve got the fans behind them and they’re protecting their lead.

“We got back into the game after going a goal down. They could’ve come right back at us but I think we nullified their threat and then controlled the game for a bit and had a few chances. We just lacked that bit of quality in the final third.

“I had a header that the goalkeeper saved as well. I think if we had got a goal before half-time, or even early on in the second, I think we would’ve got something from the game.

“We had a big following that got right behind us for the full game. It was just disappointing that we weren’t able to score.”

The 21-year-old defender has been ever-present so far this season in the Championship. He has most regularly been partnered by Manchester United loanee Di’Shon Bernard, and Greaves says he’s enjoyed playing alongside him.

“Di’Shon is quality - he’s a very good player,” Greaves added.

“Me and Di’Shon have both recently turned 21-years-old.

“It’s good to be playing with someone the same age as me because we’re just as vocal as eachother.

“We’re both talking all the time and it’s definitely something that is going to bring us both on."
