17 December 2011
Jordan Rhodes grabbed all the headlines not only with a last gasp equaliser but with all four of Huddersfield Town's goals today!
Ironically Rhodes Father is the goalkeeping coach at Sheffield Wednesday, so the chat in the Rhodes household should be interesting this evening!
Town stormed into a two goal lead inside the opening quarter of an hour in what was a dominant display. There were warning signs for Wednesday as Rhodes narrowly headed wide twice before he opened the scoring on 12 minutes and then doubled the lead on 16 minutes with an almost identical goal from another Gary Roberts cross.
Huddersfield were looking great value for the lead and it was perhaps a question of how many goals Town may score at that point. However Town then had a mad few minutes and conceded the lead and came under intense pressure.
Goals from Rob Jones (26) and Reda Johnson (28) rocked Town and everyone was satisfied with a 2-2 half time score after Wednesday looked dangerous.
Ryan Lowe appeared for the 2nd half for Wednesday and he certainly caused the Town backline more problems than Sanchez Watt who was easily tamed.
Lowe was perhaps unlucky not to have grabbed a goal himself in the game but some great saves from Bennett had preserved the scoreline and Bennett would prove key after Town conceded another two goals to Ben Marshall (63) and Chris O'Grady (74) it looked like the day would end with no points and with Wednesday looking dangerous Bennett made a few crucial saves namely from Lowe to keep the score at just 4-2.
However despite looking dejected and out of the game Huddersfield rallied around and Jordan Rhodes gave Terrier supporters a glimmer of hope when he pulled one back on 77 minutes.
As the game drew to a close and we had seen Jon Parkin come on as Town went direct route one for the final 10 minutes it looked as though the luck was not going to go Town's way. The referee Darren Deadman had signalled 5 minutes of injury time and we were well into that as Jordan Rhodes sent the travelling fans into raptures as he equalised with the last kick of the game - literally.
The game was not short of incident with a lot of bookings for both sides and some full blooded challenges - on reflection before the game I would have taken a draw and with the way it all panned out im delighted with that.
We need to improve our defence though if we seriously have ambitions of getting into the top 2.
