Goalscorer Varney admits Town's first-half performance wasn't good enough as Blues lose ground in promotion hunt with defeat to Huddersfield
Luke Varney admitted Town’s first-half performance left them too much to do after the break, as Blues were beaten 2-1 by Huddersfield.
The striker netted his first Town goal early in the second-half but earlier strikes from Nahki Wells and James Vaughan ensured that the Terriers took the points and left a dent in Mick McCarthy’s side’s promotion hopes.
“It’s disappointing to have not come away with anything today but we weren’t good enough in the first-half,” the striker told the official Club website.
“It’s a very quiet and disappointed dressing-room at the minute.
“We weren’t at it in the first-half and the gaffer let us know his thoughts at the break, which we all agreed with and knew anyway.

“We got off to a good start in the second-half and pushed for an equaliser but it wasn’t to be and we have to put this behind us now, come in tomorrow for training and get ready for two huge games at Portman Road coming up.
“On a positive note it was nice to score my first Town goal. I’ve had a couple ruled off for offside so it’s nice to see one stand but ultimately it’s the result that counts and it’s frustrating to have dropped points.
“We aren’t giving though and we will all be in tomorrow to digest this game and then start focusing on Blackpool on Saturday.”
