Exeter manager Paul Tisdale doffed his cap to Huddersfield after seeing them dismantle his side 4-0 at St James Park.
Alan Lee put Huddersfield ahead and then striker jordan Rhodes capitalised on some sloppy Exeter defending to register a hat-trick, while Daniel Nardiello had a goal disallowed for Exeter shortly after half-time.
"We have played against a very good side and the best team we've played in the League this season," Tisdale said. "It's no surprise that they can score as we knew that before the game.
"It's disappointing because I go into every game thinking we have a chance of winning and believing we can win. We just have to keep going.
"The players have to keep the faith. There's definitely an anxiety that's creeping into our play at times, but we have to keep going.
"Huddersfield have a very relaxed way of scoring at the moment, but we haven't. We look tense, but we have to keep doing the same things and believe we will get our rewards from it."
