Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert insists his side still believe they can avoid relegation from the Premier League.

The Terriers are rock bottom, with just 11 points to show from 26 games so far, and sit 14 points adrift of safety.

Huddersfield went down 2-1 at home to Arsenal over the weekend although Siewert was encouraged by their performance, as they took the game to the Gunners in the second half after falling 2-0 behind.

The German boss accepts his side face a huge battle to avoid the drop but insists they will continue to fight while survival remains a mathematical possibility.

‘We said right from the beginning we wanted to fight for the fans and fight for each other on the pitch – but we also wanted to play our football,’ he told the Examiner.

‘First of all, when you show fight, you get the luck back, and it made me very proud that we were able to win the second half (against Arsenal).

‘ He added: ‘I think this gives us something to build on and I will fight for this club, for our supporters and for my lads to stay in the Premier League.

‘You only had to see how the fans reacted [to the performance against Arsenal] – they gave us good applause.

‘That makes me really proud and happy and I think everyone who was at the game realised we will fight to the end for them.’
