Huddersfield defender Terence Kongolo: Relegation no excuse

Huddersfield defender Terence Kongolo admits their 4-1 home defeat to Leicester City was tough to take.

Kongolo insists having already been relegated was not a factor for the loss.

He told HTTV, "I think the first half they scored the first goal and then a second, but we came back with our goal, so it was 2-1.

“The three one was hard, but we tried to score until the end. It's a tough defeat, but what can we do. Next game we have to stand again."

Town was relegated from the Premier League last weekend, but Terence explained that wasn't on his mind or the mind of his teammates.

“It was hard to take last week but everyone was ok in the head and ready for the game.

“We came back with our goal, but the third goal was hard mentally. We lost, and we have to go to the next game and forget this quick.

“We always believed we could come back but we have to accept we lost."
