Tranmere 1-1 Huddersfield

Huddersfield Town lost further ground on League One leaders Charlton as they were pegged back for a draw with Tranmere Rovers.

Mustafa Tiryaki missed from eight yards out and then his cross was fired wide by Martin Devaney as Rovers pushed for an opener.

However, the Terriers led when in-form Jordan Rhodes lashed home from Danny Cadamarteri's pass.

Rovers levelled moments later when Adam McGurk headed home Devaney's cross.

And they could have won it, with Terriers keeper Ian Bennett almost turning James Wallace's shot into his own net and Lateef Elford-Alliyu and Ryan Brunt also going close for the Merseysiders.


Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:

"James Wallace was brave and he was going in for some big headers and it was something we were able to build on in the game.

"If the lads can't take confidence from that performance we may just as well jack it in.

"They've been the better side against an excellent side and we didn't let Huddersfield play.

"We were sharp in the tackle, we won the majority of second balls."

Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:

"Well it was a point gained after that performance as we certainly weren't great that's for sure.

"We didn't put them under enough pressure to be honest.

"It's never easy to drop your captain and he was disappointed obviously but he'll be back.
