FIRST let’s start with the victory over Bristol City – well done to Sean Scannell with his first goal for Town.
It wasn’t a great match but, nevertheless, we got back to winning ways.
We welcomed back Town old boy Jon Stead, who received a warm reception from the Terriers faithful and, subsequently, Tuesday night brought the return of Jordan Rhodes with Blackburn Rovers.
Jordan received a great reception and, true to form, scored the first Rovers goal (it always seems to happen when our players move on!), levelling Lee Novak’s opener.
A contentious penalty then gave Blackburn a 2-1 lead before a stoppage-time equaliser, again from Novak, had Town fans in raptures.
It was no more than Town deserved for their constant battling and commitment – and this will be seen as an excellent point, especially without Beckford and Vaughan.
We are starting a new feature in the HTSA Examiner column every week now which will basically be a teaser quiz relating to the opponents we play on the Saturday.
The first person to email the answer at firstname.lastname@example.org is the winner, and this will be announced on the HTSA website and in next week’s Examiner.
This week’s question is: Who scored Towns first-leg play-off goal against Barnsley at Oakwell in 2006?
We hope to be offering a prize in the coming weeks to whoever wins, so watch this space.
