The Huddersfield Town team to face Doncaster Rovers at the Galpharm Stadium.

Glennon, Mirfin, Page, Clarke, Williams, Holdsworth, Collins, Worthington, Berrett, Brandon, Booth.

Smithies, Skarz, Sinclair, Kamara, Beckett.

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

ROVERS – Neil Sullivan; James O’Connor, Matt Mills, Steve Roberts, Gareth Roberts; James Coppinger, Paul Green, Brian Stock, Richie Wellens; Jason Price, Paul Heffernan

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

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.
