Jonas Lossl enjoyed a dream second debut at Huddersfield Town on Saturday with a clean sheet in the 2-0 win over Queens Park Rangers, but the 31-year-old has been sent crashing back down to earth on Wednesday after suffering a 3-0 home defeat to Cardiff City. He won’t get the blame for the defeat but may feel he could have done better with two of the goals conceded.
The Bluebirds broke the deadlock in the 28th minute from Josh Murphy who chipped over Lossl from close range. Their second goal came five minutes later from an unsavable Will Vaulks volley from Marlon Pack’s corner. Their third goal came from Callum Peterson after Lossl saved an initial effort, but he hesitated rushing out to smother the first shot and paid the price.
As per WhoScored, Lossl played for 90 minutes, had 36 touches, won one aerial duel, completed 84.6% of his 26 passes, made three claims, found a teammate with six of his 10 long passes, made one clearance and made three saves. Huddersfield are 20th in the Championship with more defeats (15) than wins (9) this season, so Lossl knows he’s in for a tough three months in goal.
