HTFC - Hartlepool Take That!
Robbie Williams earned Town all three points with goal courtesy of his right foot!!
Williams ghosted into the box past four Hartlepool players and duly blasted the ball past the helpless Flinders in the Hartlepool goal.
It proved to be the winner, but Town had to work hard to come back from one-nil down, but in truth Town never looked like losing the game.
Hartlepool took a shock lead in the 18th minute through Gary Liddle and it gave the 'Pool something to cling on to, but Town were not to be denied.
After a pretty uneventful first half Huddersfield came out in the second and really battered Hartlepool from pillar to post.
Pilkington was the key man in the second half, he tortured Hartlepool, and perhaps should have had a goal to his name, when his beautifully struck free kick hit the bar, he was however presented with another opportunity in the 56th minute, that ultimately led to Town's leveller.
Pilkington's second beautifully struck free kick of the game coming back off the far post and striking Hartley en route back into the net!
There was even time for Town to squander more chances to extend their lead, Theo Robinson missing an absolute sitter, I hear all the cries of Again! but i'm sure Robinson will score us some crucial goals this season, and ultimately his miss didn't prove costly as Town eased their way to anther 3 points and up to THIRD in the league one table
It is fair to say that Pilkington has rediscovered his form, league one beware!
