ALAN LEE was all smiles after scoring his fourth goal of the season to help Huddersfield Town to their 4-0 victory romp at Exeter – and looking at the other League I results.
Charlton’s 1-0 defeat away to Stevenage means second-placed Town are just a point behind the leaders and the only League I side left unbeaten so far this season.
Meanwhile MK Dons had to make do with a 2-2 draw at home to struggling Bournemouth while Saturday’s Galpharm visitors Preston came unstuck at Walsall, who won 1-0.
"It was a great day with us winning and rivals not doing so well," said former Crystal Palace man Lee, whose frontline partner Jordan Rhodes hit a hat trick.
"I thought we were very good, very sharp and clinical.
"It was great to get a goal, and I thank Jack Hunt, because he put a great ball into the box for me.
"It was right into the danger area, and it’s a move we work hard on in training, so it’s great for it to come off.
"As for Jordan Rhodes – what a fine achievement. It was great finishing on his part.
"Lee Novak also came on and caused them problems, and it’s good that all the strikers are chipping in.
Exeter manager Paul Tisdale, whose side remained bottom of the table, said: "We have played against a very good side, the best team we’ve played in the league this season.
"It’s no surprise that they can score so freely as we knew that before the game.
It’s disappointing because I go into every game thinking we have a chance of winning and believing we can win.
"We just have to keep going. The players have to keep the faith.
"There’s definitely an anxiety that’s creeping into our play at times, but we have to keep going.
"Huddersfield have a very relaxed way of scoring at the moment, but we haven’t.
"We look tense, but we have to keep doing the same things and believe we will get our rewards from doing it."
