Chelsea defender Colwill on Huddersfield own goal: F*** it! It was just bad luck

Chelsea defender Levi Colwill says he'll bounce back after his own goal saw Huddersfield Town defeated in the Premier League promotion playoff final to Nottingham Forest.

Manchester United loanee James Garner produced a darting cross which deflected off the 19-year-old's knee and into the goal, which ultimately decided the match.

“I felt like we were the better team. You look at those two penalties and it felt very weird that not even one of them was given, they were both penalties," Colwill told Goal.

“There wasn't much I could do about the goal. I just wanted to block it but he kicked my knee up and it hit it. I didn't know what to say but I thought f*** it. I've got to play on and help the team. That's what I tried to do. It was just unfortunate. It is football, bad luck, I won't let it stop me or get my head down.

“It has been the best year of my life. I am proud. The staff and team have been brilliant. We had great togetherness and I am proud to be part of this team."

Adding about his future: “We will see [whether I stay for another season or go back to Chelsea]. I will focus on the internationals first and we will see after that."
