LEE CLARK knows Huddersfield Town could be knocked out of League I’s automatic promotion places by Peterborough tonight but insisted: “Nothing will be settled yet.”
While Brighton won 1-0 at Oldham to go seven points clear at the top, second-placed Town missed the chance to go four points ahead of Posh after being held goalless at home to Swindon.
Now Darren Ferguson’s men go to MK Dons knowing they can leapfrog the Galpharm side by winning, and Clark said: “Let them go at it to see who comes out on top.
“But whatever the result, nothing will be sorted by it.
“There will be twists and turns and there are no easy run-ins.
“Swindon were play-off finalists last year. They’ve got some quality players and look like they’ve gained confidence.
“We’re disappointed that we didn’t win, especially with it being a home game, but I can’t knock the lads.
“We created some terrific chances, hit the bar twice, had a couple kicked off the line and saw their keeper make a good save.
“We put them under sustained pressure for periods and we had a really good go.
“Once or twice in terms of quality you expect a little bit more, but the players kept going and in spells, played some good football.
“Both Gary Roberts and Danny Ward delivered some good crosses, but it just wasn’t to be for us.”
The draw meant Clark’s side equalled the club record of 17 league games unbeaten in a single season, set in 1924-25, and the boss praised his defence after a third straight clean sheet.
“We went for it by bringing three strikers off the bench, but the reason I could do so is that the lads at the back and the goalkeeper are looking solid,” he explained. “There weren’t any things for Alex Smithies to do in terms of saving, but his concentration was superb.”
