FORMER club coach John Deehan had words of praise for Town's fans and words of comfort for injured defender Nathan Clarke.
Northampton's director of football, who worked under Steve Bruce and Lou Macari at the McAlpine before moving to Aston Villa in July 2001, said: "Players and managers come and go, but supporters are constant, and Huddersfield's are among the best there are.
"The club has gone through the mill in recent years - it's unbelievable they are down in Division III when you look at how close we got to making the First Division play-offs back in the 1999-2000 season- but the fans are coming in great numbers and really get behind the team.
"They could have dragged Town back into it in the second half, and while we the better of the two teams in the portion of the match which took place, one goal is a slender lead.
"Town have some quality players - Pawel Abbott has been lively of late and you're always mindful of Andy Booth - and while it sounds strange to say, I was disappointed to find one of the best at club, Nathan Clarke, wasn't going to figure.
"He was a young lad coming through when I was there and a terrific prospect who has shown he has the talent to go a long way.
"When I was at Aston Villa, we constantly monitored Nathan, and we were close to making a move.
"Then Graham Taylor got sacked as manager, I lost my job and Nathan got a nasty knee injury.
"He has shown great character to work his way back, and I'm so disappointed to learn he's going to be out for the rest of the season because of his ankle injury.
"Nathan is a tremendous talent, and I hope he's back soon."
On the abandoment, Deehan said: "It's disappointing, but you have to take it on the chin.
"The safety of supporters has to take priority in these situations."
