First Barry Roche saved an early Terriers effort then the Chief gave a way a penalty which Roche saved to his left. Huddersfield then scored through ex-Spireite Mark Hudson, then came twenty minutes of tension at 3-1 it could go either way. A long ball from Barry Roche flicked on by Allison pushed Larkin into the penalty area where he was pushed by Mirfin of Huddersfield, Penalty! Dispite Hudson's effort's to put Shane Nicholson off he thumped the ball past Rachubka and it was 4-1. Then the Spireites decided to let Huddersfield into the game, sloppy defending and poor releasing of the ball contributed to the Terriers two goals towards full-time, the Spireites stood tall for four extra minutes and the points were in the bag.
We played well, we harried the league leaders and forced them into mistakes, the first half was ours, we dominated play but Huddersfield still had two chances which could have got them goals both saved by deserved Sponsor's man of the match Barry Roche
