Blues pegged back after twice leading

Town drew 2-2 with Huddersfield at Playford Road, going ahead twice with Matthew Clarke and Jack Willbye getting the goals. 

Blues took the lead early on through Clarke with ‘keeper Michael Crowe maintaining the advantage with a penalty save. 

Huddersfield drew level with Florent Bojaj scoring at the near post before  Willbye put Town back in front with a superb free-kick just before

Ben Holmes levelled for the Terriers again though with 20 minutes left with an unbelievable 45-yard free-kick. 

The away side should have taken the lead in the sixth minute with a long ball over the top releasing Bradley Carroll, but the right-back lacked composure and fired it over. 

Huddersfield came close again from a corner and would have scored if not for Omar Sowunmi blocking Regan Booty's volley from the edge of the box. 

Town took the lead with 13 minutes gone. An excellent run from Cory Galvin resulted in a pass to Clarke in the box and with a fantastic turn he made enough room to find the net. 

Three minutes later Huddersfield were awarded a penalty when Rory Thompson fell on the ball. Phillip Billing stepped up to take it but Crowe got two solid hands behind the ball and pushed it out for a corner. 

Huddersfield finally drew level when a failed clearance fell to  Bojaj  who beat Crowe at his nearpost.

The Blues regained the lead seconds before half-time from a Willbye free-kick from 25 yards out.

It was from another free-kick that visitors levelled again, Holmes beating Crowe with a curler from 45 yards out. 

Town came close to a winner in the 90th minute, the ball falling to Ted Bishop from a corner with his volley well saved by Sam Guthrie.
