Huddersfield   2 - 2   Leeds United

Huddersfield 2-2 Leeds

Gary Roberts' late goal rescued a point for promotion-chasing Huddersfield in an entertaining west Yorkshire derby with second-placed Leeds.

Anthony Pilkington's deflected shot put the home side ahead in a first half they largely dominated.

Jonathan Howson headed in a Robert Snodgrass cross to bring an improved Leeds level with half an hour to go.

Luciano Becchio headed his 11th of the season to put United ahead but in the 85th minute Roberts fired Town level.


Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:

"I'm disappointed we didn't win the game because we could have wrapped it up in the first half. Leeds dominated the first 20 of the second half.

"But my players showed great character to fight back and level it up and I thought we could have won it near the end. But I think a draw was a fair result and I can't have any grumbles about it.

"The desire and commitment from both sides was great and both sets of players focused it in the right way. Both clubs take great credit today.

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson told BBC Radio Leeds:

"It was a great game and it's a great advert for League One. It was played in the right manner with both clubs trying to win it right to the last minute.

"I think I'm probably the happier of the two managers. We wanted to win the match and we went out there to do that, but it's another point.

"I thought second half we were very good, first half we were just OK. Second half we were a major threat and we started to create the kind of chances Huddersfield had done in the first half.
