LEE CLARK pulled the plug on his normal post-match press conference after seeing Huddersfield Town lose a two-goal lead at Notts County.
Goals from Gary Roberts (52 minutes) and top scorer Jordan Rhodes (58) put Town in the driving seat in front of 8,914, including 2,352 Town fans, at Meadow Lane.
But County hit back through Jeff Hughes, with a 72nd-minute penalty, and veteran Lee Hughes, with an 84th-minute equaliser.
Clark, whose side remained fifth in League I after a second successive draw, spent a few minutes alone with his thoughts in the dug-out immediately after the final whistle, then returned to the dressing room.
He then ushered his players onto the team bus and away from the ground, refusing to speak to waiting reporters for the first time since becoming Town manager just over three years ago.
Quoted on the club website, Clark said: “It’s very disappointing, because we got ourselves into a fantastic position by doing the right things, competing, winning second balls, tracking runners and standing up in the challenge.
“But their first goal was down to us diving in, and the penalty gave them the opportunity to get back into the game.
“For the second we were defending too deep and Lee Hughes has always been a good finisher.
“It feels like a defeat, and having scored six goals in our last two away games, we have only taken two points.”
