Caretaker Manager Gerry Murphy brings back David Mirfin into the starting eleven.

Subs – Mark McCammon, Gareth Taylor, James Hayter, Sean McDaid, Stuart Elliott.

A fantastic early start for Huddersfield, Clarke puts in a long throw, Booth flicks on and the usually goal shy Williams scores.
1-0 to Huddersfield Town


Gerry Murphy cannot have hoped for a better start, seven minutes gone and the terriers have the lead.


Worthington gets himself booked with only thirteen minutes gone.
Page follows him on seventeen minutes.

The usual suspects, attracting the referees attention.

A long way to go in the game, to be on yellow cards.

Booth is winning the ball constantly in the air and causing Rovers a lot of problems.

So far this is a much improved performance from the Ritchie era.

Doncaster coming into the game more on the half hour.

Another chance for the terriers with thirty five minutes gone, Worthington hits the post and Brandon doesnt convert the rebound, that could have been 2-0, but this is a good first half performance.


A surprise move by Doncaster, they substitute Price and Heffernan with Taylor and McCammon.
Rovers replacing their two strikers in the first half, which indicates that the Rovers bench know they have to act quickly to get back into this game

HALF TIME – Huddersfield Town 1 Doncaster Rovers 0

A well deserved half time lead


Only minutes on the clock of the second half and Doncaster Rovers have equalised, through Taylor
1-1


Mils has been SENT OFF by the referee for bringing Brandon down as he was in on goal, correct decision he was the last man.

Ten man Doncaster now

Holdsworth has converted the free kick.
2-1 to Huddersfield Town


What a different performance this is, entertaining, passionate, the terriers looking like they actually want to play and win.

Not seen this for a few months.

2-1 up and against ten men, you have to fancy the terriers to take three points now.

Williams is replaced by Skarz.


Elliot takes the field to replace Wellens, as Doncaster Rovers chase the game.

Oh no, Green has equalised with six minutes to go, it is now 2-2, the ten man Rovers get back into the game.

Holdsworth is booked

As is Berrett now, its a combative performance by the terriers.

Skarz now goes into the refs book, this a booking festival.

FULL TIME 2-2

Attendance – 10,279


A much improved performance by Huddersfield Town, its a pity they could not hold on for the victory.

Gerry Murphy picks up where he left off in April 07.

If only Ritchie had been dispatched earlier, with endeavour like the terriers have shown today, this season could have been so much more successful.

  • Much better, much better, Murphy does it again, if only he’d take the job. Safe hands until a new appointment is made anyway.

  • What a contrast to last weeks game, Donny are probably best passing team in this league.

  • donny were crap, lucky to get a point, we really deserved the win and we were robbed tbh! unlucky gerry, now lets go relegate port vale!

  • Murphy for manager, change your mind Gerry, you are good at it, and a lot younger than Robson was at Newcastle.
    Vale won again today, and away, it wont be easy to get a win their, they have won 3 on the spin now.

  • Brandon was good again, the guy can play up front, wide or central midfield, get him a new contract Murphy or whoever.
    Oh and while your at it, Boothy too.
