A SOLITARY goal by Tommy Cavanagh after half-an-hour's play was sufficient to give Town both points from their meeting with Chelsea at Leeds Road.
Town inflicted the first away defeat of the season on the London side.
Town's superiority was more pronounced than the score suggested and they dictated play almost throughout, holding an overwhelming territorial advantage.
But they could not translate their handsome approach work into goals.
Despite many attempts, few of their shots were on target.
Jack Wheeler was rarely troubled in the Town goal.
It was Town's fifth consecutive home win and was celebrated in front of 29,556 supporters.
* Town's trip to the South of France, which was said to have been postponed, was back on again.
Confirmation of new and more favourable terms had been received just before the Chelsea match for a game with Nice, the French Cup-holders.
After Town's following match at Leicester (which they won 3-1), a party of a dozen players, manager Andrew Beattie and trainer Roy Goodall, plus three directors, were to set off to London, where they would spend the night before flying out to France.
