Rotherham   1 - 2   Huddersfield

League One side Huddersfield scored twice in the first seven minutes to send League Two Rotherham out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy first round.

An unmarked Peter Clarke headed in a near-post corner, before Robbie Simpson nodded home Michael Collins' cross.

Rotherham pulled one back when Nicky Laws' trickery put him clear and Adam Le Fondre converted his cutback.

Law went close with a free-kick and Kevin Ellison dragged a shot wide as the host side went out fighting.


Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:

"I thought the players showed a lot of professionalism, grit and determination because professional football shouldn't be played on that pitch.

"It was worse than a park's pitch and I'm glad we've won the game because I can say that now.

"I went in to see the referee and hour before the kick-off to tell him my concerns and we will be putting our disappointment down in written form."
