Huddersfield 0-0 Tranmere

Huddersfield   0 - 0   Tranmere

Huddersfield Town finished with 10 men as tenacious Tranmere Rovers held them to a goalless draw.

Both goalkeepers were on top, Rovers stopper Joe Collister parrying Jordan Rhodes' shot and denying Gary Roberts.

At the other end Alex Smithies, in the Huddersfield goal, beat away Terry Gornell's long-range effort.

Gary Naysmith was sent-off four minutes from time for a second bookable offence to complete a frustrating afternoon for Lee Clark's promotion hopefuls.


Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark said to BBC Radio Leeds:

"The team was poor - average at best a plus point it was a clean sheet.

"The two fullbacks played to their normal level. The team didn't enhance their reputation much. I didn't think we played with any intensity or any tempo. Tranmere came and did a good job.

"But with purpose we look a good side when we don't, we bring the opposition into play and give them a result like they did today."

Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:

"We can't come here and try and out-football them because we'll be beaten. We had to stop them playing football because if we let them, they will dance around us and take us to the cleaners.

"We came here with a game plan and it worked. We're more than pleased with the way the game went."
