Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert: Relegation threat not the most important

Huddersfield Town boss Jan Siewert insists they can stay calm as they face relegation.

Huddersfield will be relegated if they lose at Crystal Palace coupled with wins for both Southampton and Burnley, who play Brighton away and Wolves at home respectively.

"No (we are not thinking about relegation)," Siewert said. "Nothing has changed for us. We have a game this weekend and we're preparing to go and try to win.

"Why would we talk about something which is not important in terms of the next game?

"Of course we have a long-term view, both as a club and me as a manager, but the focus is on the next opponent.

"Crystal Palace are a very quick team. They can play in several different shapes and ways and we have to be aware of that."
