Have your say

Huddersfield Town set a new Football League record of 43 games unbeaten with victory over Notts County.

Jack Hunt returned from suspension but the game came too soon for Oscar Gobern, who has been missing with an ankle problem for several weeks.

Jordan Rhodes headed Huddersfield in front straight after half-time, his 14th goal of the season, converting Jack Hunt’s cross.

The hosts were reduced to 10 men when Alan Lee was red carded on the hour mark, but that could not halt Huddersfield who made it 2-0 on 65 minutes.

Neal Bishop fired home a consolation deep in stoppage time.

The Terriers had matched Nottingham Forest’s Football League record of 42 games unbeaten when they drew with Walsall a fortnight ago.

This latest result leaves them just six short of matching Arsenal’s English record of 49 league games unbeaten, which included going the whole of the 2003-04 Premier League season without defeat.
