The wingman has been in fine form the last three games and he continued in that vein today. Forced off with cramp late on, but he deserved to be on the winning side today. Good assist for Rhodes's goal and ws unlucky not to score himself - seeing his effort brilliantly parried onto the bar
Simon Grayson - on the game
"We were outstanding in the first half today and created some good chances and scored some good goals. At 3-1 up at half time you should see the game out, but you have seen the worst of Huddersfield Town. The team were naive and didn't sense danger as a team and as individuals, which is something that has cost the them dearly over the season. Since I have come in we have dropped four points, which is hugely disappointing.
"As a team we were too gung ho in the second half and didn't keep our shape. We asked the players to play from the shape because we would be hard to beat and have the opportunity to pick them off. We had players running forward vacating areas and not sensing danger.
"For their second and third goals their players are unopposed, which is amazing - it is eleven against eleven and we should be marking our designated players.I have liked what I have seen in training, but as today proved there are things we need to work on. We shouldn't be getting nervous in these situations, we passed the ball perfectly in the first half, but couldn't in the second.
"We have probably got too many options in midfield, but today I felt that the midfield three did well. I thought that they passed the ball well and with Scott Arfield breaking from in front of Antony Kay and Joey Gudjonsson it caused them a lot of problems. The two wide players worked hard and Jordan (Rhodes) up top got his goals. We need to get the right balance between being solid and good in attack - we can't keep trying to win games 4-3 and 3-2, let's try and nick a one goal win.
