Huddersfield Town were held to a 1-1 draw by Peterborough United last night in the Championship despite taking a late lead through Danny Ward.
Ward converted after Sorba Thomas’ corner caused havoc in the Peterborough penalty area on 74 minutes. However, Jonson Clarke-Harris would equalise and deny Huddersfield a second victory in four days.
Despite his set-piece leading to Huddersfield’s goal, it was a difficult night for Thomas at right wing-back.
Quiz: 30 questions about some of Huddersfield Town’s best ever players – Can you score 100% correct?
Carlos Corberan has relied on the creativity of the Welsh international all season, with Thomas playing in all 16 Championship fixtures this season.
He’s scored once and registered eight assists in that time – although last night’s isn’t credited to him – with his set-pieces causing particular problems.
To the Huddersfield fans, the 22-year-old has enough credit in the bank to carry the odd poor performance. However, they recognise that he’s not on the top of his game at the moment, as he was earlier in the season.
Some feel he needs a break, which was the centre of discussion on Twitter:
Why is Sorba Thomas giving the ball away constantly? #htafc

Been a big fan of Sorba Thomas since he signed. But he has been off the pace tonight. Looks tired and his usually spot on crosses have been poor. #htafc

Frustrating to only get a point but despite lots of great areas of attack, we lack what we know we lack – that cutting edge. Still, to be frustrated at an away point when Thomas and Sinani were exceptionally poor, shows that we are heading in the right direction I suppose. #htafc

Sorba awful, Sinani anonymous why bring off our biggest attack threat for Ollie Turton?
