Danny Cadamarteri salvaged a vital point for Huddersfield in their npower League One promotion clash with Bournemouth.

Joey Gudjonsson returned after missing the goalless draw with Oldham through illness.

A further boost for Lee Clark came with top scorer Jordan Rhodes being back in the squad after missing the last five games with an ankle injury.

Alan Lee was also available despite suffering a head wound against the Latics a week ago, but Alex Smithies (knee), Liam Ridehalgh (glandular fever) and Damien Johnson (knee) are all still out.

With leaders Brighton involved in an FA Cup fifth-round clash with Stoke - losing 3-0 - the Cherries and the Terriers both had a chance to make inroads into Albion’s lead.

Bournemouth struck first at Dean Court through Michael Symes in the 75th minute, and appeared poised to go level on points at the top of the table with Brighton.

However, Cadamarteri made it two goals in three league games since his free transfer move from Dundee United three weeks ago with an equaliser at the death to keep Huddersfield three points behind second-placed Bournemouth with a game in hand.

Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark said: “This run that we’re having this year, that was our worst performance by a long way, but they’ve showed great character I think we scored with our only shot on target.

“We looked tired mentally and physically. Our passing was very poor, our tempo to the game was poor and I think its just the amount of games the lads have had has caught up with them.”
