Hartlepool   0 - 1   Huddersfield

Hartlepool 0-1 Huddersfield

Hartlepool 0-1 Huddersfield

Huddersfield moved to within two points of an automatic promotion spot in League One with a win at Hartlepool.

Joey Gudjonsson played a ball into the area for Anthony Pilkington to slot home and put the visitors ahead.

Gary Liddle sliced wide and Andy Monkhouse narrowly missed the target with a low drive as the home side went in search of an equaliser.

Peter Clarke did well to block an Antony Sweeney effort late on as the Terriers held on for the three points.


Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:
"They had to fight and battle for everything, but I think that certainly in the first half we played some very, very good stuff.

"We created some good chances and if we'd been a bit more ruthless again we could have had more than the one goal, but I'm delighted with the spirit and togetherness they've shown.

"I picked the players for us to be resolute and solid at the back, and that's what they were. And my midfield players - I thought Scott Arfield had one of his best games of the season."
