In an amazing stroke of luck, we managed to leave Huddersfield with a draw on Saturday afternoon.

Is there anything else to say? Oh yeah, there is.

Anyways, the game started off incredibly, with Ross McCormack getting a goal in the second minute to make it 1-0. A square ball from Jonathan Hogg led the Scot to make a daring run, before finishing in great fashion past Jed Steer. It was nearly two after a great spell of possession, when Alexander Kacaniklic converted a Jazz Richards cross into the net; however, it was ruled offside.

McCormack found himself in a similar situation, when he was fouled in the box by Mark Hudson following a through ball by Jamie O'Hara, but the referee waved the appeal away, before Huddersfield made it a tie. A Emyr Huws free kick found Hudson, who escaped his marker before slotting his right footed shot past Andrew Lonergan to make it 1-1 in the 19th minute.

Joe Lolley had a long distance effort that flew over in the 30th minute, before a free kick from O'Hara led to McCormack getting a shot off at the post, which was somehow blocked from a diving Hudson. A long range effort from Huws went wide of our post. Not much really took place before the end of the half.

Scott Parker came on to replace Emerson Hydman in the 50th minute, just as Lonergan made an amazing save, twice, to keep it 1-1. Lasse Vigen Christensen helped Luke Garbutt run down the left before shooting, when really he should have crossed, as the ball went wide. Kacaniklic had a left-footed wide shot just after. He was subsequently substituted for Moussa Dembele at the hour mark.

Not much happened in the last half an hour, but Parker and Dembele shared a one-two in the 75th minute, but the ball ended up out of reach. Shaun Hutchinson made a great save with his head just two minutes later, following a cross from the home team, before Sakari Mattila came on for O'Hara with ten minutes left. And that was it, a 1-1 draw.
