Big Match Review - Bournemouth 1 Huddersfield 1

Bournemouth 1-1 Huddersfield Town
Saturday February 19, Dean Court, (Att:7,923)

A Danny Cadamarteri goal two minutes from time earned Huddersfield Town a precious point in their promotion six pointer against fellow high flyers Bournemouth.

In a tight first half of few chances, Gary Roberts had the best opportunity to put the visitors ahead when his left footed volley from outside the box fizzed over the crossbar.

The Cherries stepped things up in the second half as they went in search of the win that would take them level on points at the top with league leaders Brighton.

Marc Pugh's deflected free kick brought the best out of veteran Town keeper Ian Bennett, but the Terriers custodian was powerless to stop the home side taking the lead 16 minutes from time.

Liam Feeney's cross from the right being powered home by the head of Michael Symes to put the South Coast side on course for their 12th home win of the campaign.

However, Lee Clark's men rallied and restored parity as Roberts and Cadamarteri played a one-two and the latter managed to squeeze the ball past Shwan Jalal for the leveller.

The Dorset outfit almost immediately responded though, with Feeney finding too much time and space to fire a shot in at goal, only to see the legs of Bennett deny him a winner.

It ensured Huddersfield remain unbeaten in 2011 and sit in third, three points behind a Bournemouth team continuing to defy the odds.
