Notts County 2-2 Huddersfield

Notts County 2-2 Huddersfield

Notts County fought back from a two-goal deficit to draw with promotion-chasing Huddersfield Town.

Gary Roberts put Town in front when he headed in from close range after good work from Jordan Rhodes, who then headed in his 20th goal of the season.

Jeff Hughes then pulled a goal back for Notts from the penalty spot, after Alan Sheehan was brought down by Tom Clarke.

The hosts levelled late on when veteran striker Lee Hughes wrong-footed Terriers keeper Ian Bennett.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Notts County manager Martin Allen told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"What a performance. They were absolutely fantastic.

"We were the better side from start to finish

"What we have got in abundance is team spirit and unity. They really do care."
