Huddersfield win to make history
Huddersfield Town 2 Notts County 1
Saturday 19 November 2011
Huddersfield made history today after breaking the Football League record for the longest unbeaten run following their 2-1 win over Notts County in League One.
Lee Clark's side equalled the 32-year-old record of 42 games without defeat set by Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest in 1979 when they drew with Walsall a fortnight ago, but they broke that this afternoon thanks to a brace from Jordan Rhodes.
Rhodes opened the scoring in the 46th minute and then doubled his side's lead in the 65th minute - not long after the Terriers had lost Alan Lee to a red card.
Sixth-placed Notts County pulled a goal back late on through Neal Bishop but it was not enough to deny second-placed Huddersfield.
Despite the win, Huddersfield remain five points behind leaders Charlton after Chris Powell's men recorded 1-0 win at London rivals Brentford, Bradley Wright-Phillips scoring the only goal of the game in the 64th minute.
