MATCH FO­CUS

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

Good day: Ja­son Pun­cheon

Im­pressed on league de­but for Hud­der­s­field Town by bring­ing some much-needed ur­gency to the at­tack. Tired late on but an en­cour­ag­ing per­for­mance.

Bad day: Alex Pritchard

Lit­tle went right for Town mid­fielder, whose cor­ners in the sec­ond half were woe­ful. Al­ways will­ing to try to un­lock the de­fence but ex­e­cu­tion made it a day to for­get.

Key mo­ment: 76th minute

Lee Ma­son’s de­ci­sion to over­turn his own penalty award for a foul on Florent Hadergjonaj by Joe Ben­nett de­nied Town a big op­por­tu­nity to claim vic­tory.

Ref watch: Lee Ma­son

Left Town fum­ing at fi­nal whis­tle and also jeered by lo­cals at half-time after dis­miss­ing a strong Cardiff shout for a penalty when Hadergjonaj looked to foul Ju­nior Hoi­lett.

Ver­dict

Re­sult did nei­ther side much good. Town dis­played more ad­ven­ture than in most away games this term but qual­ity still lack­ing.
