DEFENDER Jack Hunt hailed the grit and determination behind this win and said: “It’s one of our best performances of the season.”
The Terriers went two goals down early on but roared back to go second in the League One table after favourable results elsewhere.
Hunt admitted the football Town played was not particularly good but added: “This was a performance we can all be proud of.
“We didn’t play especially well, but the grit and determination we showed to get back in it means it was probably one of the best performances of the season.”
On going back into the automatic promotion places Hunt added: “We said after the home defeat by Bournemouth that we wanted to go on another run.
“We’re doing that and have gone second in the table. And it’s nice to have the points on the board even if some teams have games in hand.
“We probably should have more points as well. We dropped points against Carlisle and Notts County and we maybe should’ve won at Sheffield Wednesday.
“It certainly sets up an interesting battle for the rest of the season. Many of the top teams have to come here, so it’s in own hands.”
Hunt also praised fellow defender Jamie McCombe, who continued his good form following a loan spell at Preston by scoring the equaliser.
He said of the 6ft 5in centre back: “The form he’s been in has been outstanding and it shows a real strength of character.
“He was in form before the Leyton Orient game where he got he sent off. And we could talk about the reasons for that red card forever.
“But he’s gone out on loan, come back and done ever so well to force his way back into the side. He’s back in the same sort of form and hopefully it’ll continue.”
Hunt also singled out captain Peter Clarke for his calming influence after Town went two goals down, partly down to a penalty Clarke himself conceded.
On the penalty Hunt said: “I think Peter was trying to block a shot or nick the ball away. I don’t think there was much contact. It seemed a harsh decision.”
