GERKS: A MASSIVE WIN

7 December 2013

Town stopper puts in superb display as Blues come from behind to beat the Terriers at Portman Road

Dean Gerken hailed the dramatic comeback victory over Huddersfield at Portman Road as a ‘massive win’ for Town.

The Blues stopper put in a fine display, which included a first-half penalty save from Terriers skipper James Vaughan, as Blues came from behind to take all three points.

The visitors went in at half-time in the lead thanks to Danny Ward’s opener, but David McGoldrick levelled the scores before Daryl Murphy headed home the winner for Town with just one minute remaining.

“It’s a massive win for us today against an in-form side in Huddersfield,” Gerks told the Club website.

“That’s three wins out three for us and confidence is high. It’s put us into a good position in the table and we’ve just got to keep pushing on now.

“That’s probably the busiest I’ve been in a game and I was pleased with my performance, especially the penalty save, but all the boys did brilliant and it’s a team game first and foremost.

“We watch clips of the opposition and we had a few bits put together of Vaughan’s recent penalties, so it was down to research as much as anything.

"I made a decision early doors that if he did a stutter in his run up, then he would aim for that side of the goal and thankfully I guessed right and I’m over the moon to play my part for the team.”
