DESPITE a cracking 2011 without a loss in 25 league games, it's the play-offs for Huddersfield Town.

We'll be bringing you all the news from Bournemouth ahead of the big games plus news from the other semi-final with MK Dons and Peterborough United.


BOSS Keith Hill watched Rochdale put a damper on the Cherries’ play-off preparations and then said the pressure would be off Lee Bradbury’s men to progress.

Hill, who guided Rochdale to promotion alongside Cherries last season, said: “Bournemouth have got a great chance because they are probably outsiders in most peoples’ eyes. For me, all the pressure will be on Huddersfield because there is no question they will be the favourites."
