Huddersfield manager Mark Robins had no complaints about the 2-1 defeat at Barnsley and admitted his side were second best on the day.
Chris O'Grady and Norwegian Marcus Pedersen, on loan from Vitesse Arnham, put the home side 2-0 up at the break and they restricted derby rivals Huddersfield to a goal from James Vaughan after the break, weathering pressure from the Terriers.
Robins said: "There are no qualms about the result. In the first half we were overran but in the second half we were better.
"Barnsley were committed and scored a couple of goals before we got out of the blocks.
"At half-time we had a conversation and things changed a little bit for us. We looked more likely to score in the second half.
"We created a number of chances and on another day we could have won the game.
"It was a great ball from Adam Clayton for the goal and James had another couple of chances to score.
"Inevitably, Barnsley dropped 10 yards back after we scored and we just needed a bit of guile.
"There's no substitute for working hard and trying to close people down and they did that better than us. That can't happen again."
