FULL TIME: Tommy Smith happy with Ipswich Town point at Huddersfield

PUBLISHED: 16:59 23 February 2013 | UPDATED: 17:30 23 February 2013

Huddersfield v Ipswich: The Blues earned a valuable point against fellow strugglers Huddersfield Town, following a 0-0 draw in West Yorkshire.

In a game of few chances, Daryl Murphy had Ipswich’s only shot on target with a tame effort that was saved by Alex Smithies.

Late on, Huddersfield defender Peter Clarke blocked Carlos Edwards’ testing cross bravely with Frank Nouble steaming into finish into an empty net.

The hosts enjoyed the better of the possession during the game and Stephen Henderson made a good double save from Lee Novak and Neil Danns in the second half.

“It was a battle. It was never going to be a pretty football game, looking at the way the pitch cuts up, and as a back four we are pleased to come away with a point,” said defender, Tommy Smith.
