Chesterfield 0-2 Huddersfield Town – League 1

On my 16th birthday I went to the B2Net Stadium to watch Chesterfield play Huddersfield Town.

Today’s game was another that saw Chesterfield take on a side challenging for automatic promotion this season, this time it was Huddersfield Town.

The Spireites position at the bottom of the League 1 meant they desperately needed 3 points to keep up their hopes of survival, but that would be no easy task against a side that had lost just 3 times in the league all season.

Chesterfield got off to a decent start, having much of the possession without creating any threatening opportunities. However, the Terriers took the lead on the 23rd minute courtesy of Lee Novak’s unstoppable shot to make it 1-0.

Just 4 minutes later the game seemed all but over as Jordan Rhodes bagged his 34th goal of the season to double the away sides’ advantage.

Chesterfield did try to get back in to the game but failed to create many great chances with Craig Westcarr’s header over the crossbar about as close as the home side came. Gary Roberts hit the crossbar from Huddersfield but they couldn’t add to the score line and the game played out to finish with the result never really in doubt.

The win kept the Terriers in touch with the automatic promotion places while Chesterfield fell further adrift at the bottom of the table.

After the game I had pictures with Tom Clarke, Lee Novak, Antony Kay, Peter Clarke, former Chesterfield loan player Jack Hunt and Alan Lee. I also had a picture with Huddersfield’s star man Jordan Rhodes, who happily stood for a while chatting to supporters of both sides and signing autographs. Finally, I spotted Chesterfield’s on-loan midfielder Franck Moussa walking past and I had a picture with him before heading home.

Next up for me is the Johnstones Paint Trophy at Wembley Stadium on Sunday. I can’t wait!
