Huddersfield   2 - 1   Colchester

Huddersfield 2-1 Colchester

Huddersfield 2-1 Colchester

Lee Novak's superb header in stoppage time saw off the challenge of Colchester and handed Huddersfield an outside chance of automatic promotion.

Theo Robinson put the Terriers ahead when he converted a 17th minute penalty awarded for Paul Reid's handball.

Simon Hackney levelled 14 minutes from time when he converted Kayode Odejayi's cross at the far post.

The late winner resulted from a Gary Roberts free-kick which Tom Clarke flicked on and Novak powered in.

Huddersfield's chance of going up next Saturday is a very slim one and would need an unlikely set of results to have any chance of happening.

They have to win at relegation-threatened Exeter and hope that Leeds lose at home to Bristol Rovers while overturning a goal difference margin of five and that Millwall, whose goal difference is four better than the Terriers, draw with Swindon.


Aidy Boothroyd, Colchester United manager told BBC Essex:

"It's another away loss, I think that is six on the bounce. I thought we were the better team on the day.

"That's not being disrespectful to Huddersfield, because they are a good team. It's a good club, it's where I started out and I think Lee Clark's done a great job.

But we had a game plan to frustrate them and counter attack them, which we did. We've conceded two really poor goals."
