Laurent Depoitre snuck in an equalizer for Huddersfield Town at Southampton, and USMNT midfielder Danny Williams is happy with the away point.

The hard-nosed midfielder was a big part of Town’s resolve at St. Mary’s in the 1-1 draw, and feels his side did plenty to earn their Christmas stay in 11th place.

“You take a point at Southampton away. We recovered well from their goal and we deserved a point. It was a bit lucky but the shift the lads put in today I don’t think we deserved to lose. A few weeks ago against Bournemouth we should have been three or four nil up but then conceded two set pieces. Luck was on our side today.”

Town now is 2-1-1 in its last four matches, rounding back into form after a desolate run of two wins and seven losses. The promoted Terriers continue to sit more than a result above the drop zone.
