Huddersfield 1-1 MK Dons

Stephen Gleeson's free-kick rescued a point for MK Dons against play-off rivals Huddersfield.

The Terriers led on the stroke of half-time when deadline day signing Kallum Higginbotham's cross was headed into the top corner by Jamie McCombe.

But the Dons were level when Gleeson whipped in a free-kick from 35 yards which found its way into the net.

Huddersfield almost won it when Jack Hunt's cross-shot hit the woodwork in injury time.

The Terriers have dropped out of the automatic promotion places with the draw, while the Dons remain fifth.


Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:

"I say for 60 minutes we were good and then we had a tough 20 which cost us the three points.

"I'd love to be number one or number two but there's so much football to be played and we've just got to take it on the chin.

"This was a good game between two good teams and we came to win and they've had a good go so we'll dust ourselves down and look forward to Leyton Orient."

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"I think a point was fair, but I was disappointed.

"I felt the referee missed a challenge on Dean Bowditch and he's seen one on Potts [Darren Potter] which led to their goal.

"And then he missed a blatant handball and as you know we've had penalties given against us for a lot less than that.

"But overall I think a point was probably fair."
