Huddersfield   2 - 0   Dover

Scott Arfield opened the scoring for Huddersfield
Arfield set Huddersfield on their way to victory

Huddersfield scored two early goals as the League One outfit defeated Blue Square Bet South side Dover to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Town took the lead after eight minutes when Lee Novak squared the ball to Scott Arfield, who slotted home.

A minute later Novak whipped in a cross that eluded Jordan Rhodes but was converted by Gary Roberts.

Dover almost pulled a goal back but goalscorer Roberts cleared a header from Olly Schulz off the line.

The visiting team were cheered on vociferously by their sizeable support and they can be proud of the way they held their opponents after conceding twice so early in the match.

It was a slightly flat contest after Town's early double but Dover had a spell of pressure late in the game.

The Kent side almost pulled a goal back only for Alex Smithies to deny Adam Birchall while Harry Baker went close with a strike that took a deflection.

Town almost scored a third goal but Ross Flitney made a super double save to deny Kevin Kilbane and then substitute Alan Lee.


Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:
"I'm happy because cup football is about winning.

"The lads have started very well, they've shown a good attitude, desire and determination, and what they've done by the start is show the opposition respect.

"I'm just a bit disappointed we couldn't carry on what we've done, but fair play to Dover, they haven't allowed us to do that at times."

Dover manager Martin Hayes told BBC Radio Kent:
"Not the best of starts, pleased we kept it at 2-0 which gave us a chance to have a go at them.

"I'm just disappointed we didn't score. We showed a bit of naivety, we got punished straight away but I thought if we got one we could test them a bit.

"On another day we could have got one, maybe two and it could have been an epic cup tie but we gave those fans something to cheer about."
