Huddersfield Town coach and Liverpool legend on Wembley wish in JPT
Oct 6 2010 by Dougie Thomson, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
TERRY McDERMOTT watched Town beat Peterborough 3-2 to make the Northern quarter-finals of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and said: “We’ve got real aspirations of getting to Wembley.”
The Galpharm side need to take three more scalps to reach the national final, and will find out their opponents in a tie to be played on November 9 or 10 on Saturday, ahead of their League I game at Colchester.
Last night’s win, which featured a spectacular double by Anthony Pilkington after Graham Carey’s early opener before Peterborough fought back through Aaron Mclean and Mark Little, followed three straight defeats.
And Lee Clark’s right-hand man McDermott added: “I thought the lads showed what playing for this club means to them.
“It was a fantastic win against one of the best sides in League I, and we could easily have been five up by half-time.
“They fought back in the second half and made us work hard, but we dug in and deserved the victory.
“It’s a great lift after a tough spell and it’s great to be through to the next round of this competition.
“Any Wembley final is a great occasion for players and fans alike and we want to get there.”
Town were today assessing the leg injury which forced goalkeeper Alex Smithies out of the England Under 21 squad.
