Huddersfield Town boss Carlos Corberan felt his side only had themselves to blame in the defeat to Rovers.

Corberan felt goalkeeper Ryan Schofield ‘didn’t perform at the level’ on a difficult afternoon for the young ‘keeper as he shipped five goals in the defeat.

He failed to hold a Joe Rothwell corner for the first Rovers goal, and couldn’t keep out a Sam Gallagher strike which, while powerful, was straight at him and to which he got two hands to.

Schofield wasn’t alone in being below par for the visitors who were cut open time and again by Rovers, their desire to play out from the back only inviting Rovers on.

And Corberan said: “We need to reduce our mistakes. It makes it very difficult to be competitive.

“It's a worry for us and we're responsible for it. I need to solve it because we need to finish the season better.

“Ryan Schofield is a young player and you need to accept that young players will make mistakes but it's important to give the right answers.

“He did not perform at the level he has and it's important for every player to perform well.”

Lancashire Telegraph:

Rovers led inside eight minutes as Armstrong headed home from close range, before Ben Brereton added a second midway through the half, having passed up two good chances before that.

A rare moment of success for the visitors saw them pull a goal back on the stroke of half time as Rovers put through his own net.

However, three goals in six second half minutes leading up to the hour killed the game as a contest, and leaves the Terriers still requiring points in their fight against the drop.

“We wanted to come here to get something positive and had to mentality to do it.” Corberan added.

“Very fast, we conceded two goals which we have to avoid to be a competitive team in a football game. We finished the first half better with the goal we scored.

“I was thinking we don’t have anything to lose; only the game, but when you’re losing 2-1 you need to change the result because we knew how important three points would be.

“Sometimes when you’re too brave in attack and you’re making some risks, you’re going to suffer some counter-attacks. At the same time as you have to go for the goal, you can’t concede a goal.

“When we conceded the third goal it was clear that they broke our balance and the level of confidence in the team reduced. Sometimes when you give up, the only thing you can do is concede goals and that’s what happened.”
