HTFC- Town beat Wycombe
3 April 2010 ; 15:00
Jordan Rhodes grabbed his 21st goal of the season with a stunning overhead kick, enhancing Huddersfield's play-off push at the same time
Rhodes opened the scoring after just 22 minutes, it was a scrappy start to the game with neither side really getting a foothold in the game, but Rhodes 21st of the season sparked Huddersfield into life.
Neal Trotman nearly added to his account from a corner but his header rattled the bar!!
Huddersfield had other chances to extend the lead but the next goal came courtesy of a solo effort from Theo Robinson just after half time on 52 minutes.
Robinson has struggled of late in front of goal and has found himself back in the side thanks to injuries to fellow frontmen Robbie Simpson and Lee Novak, and scoring goals will certainly help him to retain his place, with both Simpson and Novak resuming trainign this week.
Wycombe did pull a goal back on 73 minutes, if only to make sure my match prediction was correct, but they never really troubled Huddersfield throughout and the Yorkshire side took home all three points as well as re-claiming 6th position in the table.
On to Oldham on Tuesday Night!

Was a surprise to see him replaced so soon after scoring
Got the tactics spot on, and after dominating the game will be disapointed to have a tense last 15 minutes.
Much harder working side than the one that visited the Galpharm, however they will struggle to stay in the division
"I thought the goal we gave away was poor and we should have had the game wrapped up by then.
"I am not a crackpot and I love winning but I am disappointed we did not see the game out better and we let Wycombe back into the game.
"Their goal started in their own defensive corner and we had enough chances to cut it out before it went in."
'You couldn't fault our work rate but we didn't work their goalkeeper enough. We didn't do enough in both boxes. After their second goal we took the game to them, but then we had no other choice. It was another one of those games.
'We don't like coming away from games either losing or drawing - I don't like this feeling and neither do the players and supporters. The game at Walsall on Monday is a must win - we need a winning mentality. If we have a nightmare but we win, I will take that.'
