Lee: I was expecting exit game at Terriers

FORMER Ireland international Alan Lee says he was expecting to be let go by Championship side Huddersfield Town.

The 34-year-old striker is planning his next move after Huddersfield manager Mark Robins told the Dubliner he could leave The Terriers.

"The manager was up front with me as soon as he came into the club in February," says Lee (pictured).

"He indicated to me that I wasn't in his plans going forward, and gave me the chance to go out on loan if I wanted.

"I told him I'd like to stay around for the remainder of the season and do what I could to help the club escape relegation.

"He said I would remain in contention for a place, and funnily enough the next night I came off the bench and scored the equaliser before Danny Ward grabbed a great winner.


"I would like to have scored more goals.

"Hopefully I've been able to contribute in other ways, both on and off the field.

"I've always given my best in every game I have played, and I've got to say I have loved my time at Huddersfield Town.

"It was great to play my part in getting us promoted, and for us to stay in the Championship this time was crucial, because now I can see the club going from strength to strength."
