"We know we have to improve. We're on a good starting point to achieve our target, to survive in the Premier League, not more, not less. Anything else is totally irrelevant."
Huddersfield begin 2018 with a trip to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City, who are without a win in five matches in all competitions.
