Hello and welcome to Huddersfield Town's final February assignment.

Ipswich Town are the visitors to the John Smith's Stadium, and they're trying to snap a three match losing streak - and Mick McCarthy has admitted he would take a point today as a result.

For Town, it's been a pretty good week all things considered.

The win against Wolves was followed by a dreadful opening 45 minutes against MK Dons, swiftly followed by a big setback when Philip Billing saw red.

But Town rallied to claim a dramatic draw thanks to Nahki Wells - again.

Then came the week's big news, that Dean Hoyle has confirmed £179 adult season tickets for 2016/17. Town deserve huge credit for this , which backs up the appointment of David Wagner as part of the club's new, modern direction.

The offer is for an initial 10,000 so it pays to be in quick.

To today then, and Town are looking to extend their unbeaten run to four games. No Billing, but there is a Dean Whitehead.

A tough March calendar lies ahead , so three points today would be very welcome!

Stick with us for all the build-up and live text commentary below....

Frustration

Town will feel extremely hard done to there. They dominated the game and created a hatful of chances but went down to Mick McCarthy’s men, who wee direct, aggressive and well-organised in defending their lead.

FT Huddersfield 0-1 Ipswich

That’s it and Town go down to the single first half strike from Pringle.

Town throwing everyone forward

93, Kitchen sink time

Smith to the rescue

91. Jed Steer had gone up for the free kick and an Ipswich player boots the ball in the direction of his unguarded goal. But Smith tidies up

FIVE minutes added

90. FIVE Minutes of stoppage time for Town to find an equaliser.

Maitland-Niles booked

89. AInsley Maitland-Niles drags back Paterson and is booked.

Steer is up

88. I repeat, Jed Steer is up for the corner.

But the kick is poor and doesn’t clear the first man. He has to run all the way back.

Town frustrated

87. Another Ipswich free kick as a defender tumbles to the turf. Bialkowski takes his time and the hosts are getting increasingly frustrated here,

Town chance

82. Another opportunity for the ten men of Huddersfield Town!

Jamie Paterson dances through the efforts of several defenders to block him and an almighty scramble ensues, but somehow the ball doesn’t cross the line.

Ipswich change

81. Kevin Foley off, Ainsley Maitland-Niles on.

Town down to ten

79. Bit of an issue here - Hogg can’t continue and Wagner has used all three of his subs. Town down to ten for the second time in a week.

Hogg shot

77. Great chance for Hogg on the volley from the region of the penalty spot but he fires too close to the keeper.

Wild effort from Evis

76. Excitement from the crowd as Elvis is free on the left, but the ball is a bit behind him and he has to slow to gather it in. He decides the best option is a very ambitious effort from deep which is a long way off target.

Smith booked

73. Town’s Tommy Smith shown a yellow for a foul on the near side. Bru’s free kick has too much power and sails over everyone and out for a goal kick to Town.

Sears booked

71. Freddie Sears into the ref’s notebook for a trip on the recently arrived Elvis Manu. The resulting set piece is straight into the arms of Bialkowski.

Final Town change

68. Third sub from Wagner and Kyle Dempsey is replaced by Elvis Manu.

Elvis to the rescue?

Ipswich so close to a second

66. Big let off for Town! A combination of poor passes from Town and Ipswich striker Daryl Murphy leaves Mark Hudson trailing in his wake with a neat turn. Jed Steer is beaten by the low effort but fortunately it drifts past the far post.

Brilliant from Smith

63. Fantastic control deep on the right on the run from Smith, who keeps the ball from going out and delivers a dangerous low cross which is only just diverted out of the path of Wells.

Applause from Wagner for that effort from the right back.

Ipswich change

61. Ben Pringle is booed as he exits - he’s been guilty of a few shirt pulls this afternoon. Kevin Bru is his replacement.

Town chance

59. Great chance for the equaliser! David Wagner looks on in disbelief that hasn’t gone in!

Davidson boots wide after the ball drops to him unexpectedly in a great position in the area.

Double change

58. Joel Lynch and Karim Matmour are off for Martin Cranie and Jamie Paterson. Two throws of the dice from the boss.

Dempsey wasteful

57. Town building from deep but Dempsey strikes low, without power or direction, from distance and the chance is gone.

Game suiting Ipswich

55. All very scrappy this. Long periods of head tennis which is definitely more suited to Ipswich than David Wagner’s Huddersfield. The boss talked about still playing their own game this week in the face of aggression but that isn’t happening at the moment.

Chambers booked

51. Luke Chambers first into the book for pulling Harry Bunn back as he looks to start an attack.

Ipswich defending in numbers

50. Looks like McCarthy’s men are going to pack behind the ball this half. Might require some patience in breaking them down.

Not good news numbers wise

Second half

46. Back under way with Town needing a goal. Can they be more clinical in the next 45 minutes?

Teams back out

No changes at the break from David Wagner.

A common theme to the half time reports

HT Huddersfield 0-1 Ipswich

Town somehow find themselves trailing at the break after a dominant display full of good chances.

Unfortunately the visitors took their opportunity while Town spurned theirs.
