Huddersfield   2 - 1   Southend

Huddersfield 2-1 Southend

Huddersfield 2-1 Southend

Jordan Rhodes scored twice as Huddersfield boosted their play-off prospects with victory over Southend.

Town had already hit the bar through Antony Kay before Rhodes tapped home Robbie Williams' excellent cross just before the break.

Rhodes then grabbed his second and ultimately sealed the win from an Anthony Pilkington corner.

Scott Spencer grabbed an injury-time consolation for Southend but Town held on to keep up their promotion hopes.


Southend United manager Steve Tilson told BBC Essex:

"I thought we deserved a point. I was really pleased with the performance.

"I thought we frustrated them and our set-up was good.

"They didn't really hurt us much in the first half, but is was disappointing to let in a goal on half-time."
