Huddersfield get the game underway!

PNE seem to be employing a 3-5-2 so far, Hughes inside at centre back with Rafferty at left wing back and Browne on the right. Scott Sinclair partnering Emil Riis up front.

Bacuna bursts through from midfield and as he enters the area Rudd is out sharply to grab the ball at his feet bravely. 

Goal Huddersfield. 1-0.

Frazier Campbell opens the scoring.

O’Brien slips a ball through for the striker who gets the wrong side of Hughes and slots the ball past Rudd as he tumbles over.

Toffolo crosses from the left and Campbell’s glancing header beats the far post.

A switched ball looking for Browne is turned behind.

Bauer gets a free header and powers it at goal but it hits Browne and goes over.

Potts picks the ball up from range and fires towards the home goal but it’s never really troubling the 'keeper.

Another shot from distance

Decent link up in the forward leaves Potts on the ball with space 25 yards out but his shot has the same result as the last.

Big chance for Sinclair!

Sinclair challenges for the ball in the area and is presented the ball through on goal, he shoots on his left foot but slices it past the post.

He really should have at least hit the target.

Emil Riis does well to bring the ball down in the area and but for a last ditch tackle he may have drawn level.
