Mark Robins: Expects relegation fight to last until final day

Jordan Rhodes haunted his former side with a first-half goal and Huddersfield were unable to find a leveller as Rovers keeper Grzegorz Sandomierski denied Jermaine Beckford.

Huddersfield drop back into the bottom three on goal difference and Robins expects a tense finale in the Championship relegation battle.

When asked about Rhodes, Robins said: "We kept him fairly quiet but he's popped up with a poacher's goal and settled it.

"It's disappointing from our perspective. You know Jordan's a poacher and comes alive in the box.

"He's always a threat and it just happens that we switched off from a set play and he's capitalised on it.

"The keeper's made a few good saves - he's made a terrific save from Jermaine Beckford and kept them at 1-0.

"There was very little between the two teams. They attacked us pretty well in the first 20 minutes and then we managed to get out of our half and try and attack them.

"In all fairness we've not done enough as a team to try and take anything from it but I still feel disappointed because we could have done.

"We have three games left in order to pick up enough points to survive. It'll go down to the wire no doubt."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
