Huddersfield boss Simon Grayson felt his side showed what they're all about, despite falling to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Cardiff City on the opening night of the new Football League season.
City captain Mark Hudson struck deep in injury-time to deny the newly promoted Yorkshire side a deserved point at Cardiff City Stadium.
The result was harsh on the Terriers, who looked assured on their return to the second tier, with the impressive Oliver Norwood and Scott Arfield forcing excellent saves from Cardiff keeper David Marshall, but it was not enough.
And Grayson told Sky Sports: "I think if we show the same sort of attitude, application, desire and quality that we showed at times tonight then we will be a decent team.
"Obviously when their goalkeeper is man of the match then it tells us something about that game.
"There were numerous opportunities for us but their goalkeeper Marshall has made half a dozen outstanding saves, but there is a lot to take heart from tonight."
With Jordan Rhodes linked with a number of high profile clubs, Grayson was quick to deny any interest in the high profile striker.
"Well, we've always stated that we're not looking to sell the player. Every football player in the country has got a price tag, but we're not looking to sell.
"We have a chairman who is ambitious, has plenty of money behind him and doesn't need to sell.
"As it stands at this time, nobody has come anywhere near the valuation we have of Jordan Rhodes and we'll keep him as long as we need him."
