Tranmere   0 - 2   Huddersfield

Tranmere 0-2 Huddersfield

Tranmere 0-2 Huddersfield

A Jordan Rhodes brace was enough to see Huddersfield into the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Northern Area final against Carlisle at the expense of Tranmere.

Rhodes latched on to Alan Lee's flick-on to send a fine lob over home keeper Gunnar Nielsen.

Rovers spurned a gilt-edged opportunity to level from the spot after Gary Roberts felled Ash Taylor, but Lateef Elford-Alliyu saw his effort saved.

Rhodes then sealed it by sweeping home Lee's cross after a swift counter.


Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"I thought a little bit of class was the difference between the two sides.

"Some of the lads will be disappointed as a lot of them won't get within two games from playing at Wembley.

"To lose three games on the bounce is something we're not used to and we've not done it before and it's something we need to stop now."

Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:
"We had to compete and deal with their set-pieces - they've got a lot of variation and height in their side so they're always a threat from that.

"I thought the back four in a defensive situation were outstanding as well as obviously the goalkeeper who's saved another penalty.

"When we did show our quality with the ball we scored two terrific goals and maybe could have had one or two more."
