This was an evenly played game with neither team dominating for long stretches. The end result was a boring but efficient win for us. Huddersfield seemed to be frustrated throughout the game, amassing 12 fouls, 3 yellow cards, and a red card late in the match. Our unbeaten streak is now at twelve games and we have notched six consecutive wins.
vs Sheff Wed
This was another fairly even game on the stat sheet, although Sheff Wed took a few more chances than we did. The defense did well to keep another clean sheet, though, and our attack made the best of the few chances that we created; with the game winner coming only minutes before the end of the game. Our unbeaten streak is now at thirteen games and we have notched seven consecutive wins. Our magic number is 19 with 9 games to go.
This game was a subtle reminder that we still have to show up offensively. Riding a high of seven straight wins I think we were too confident that the winning goal would just happen. Instead we only managed 8 shots and 1 on target. We held strong defensively to salvage a scoreless draw but we were lucky that Hull didn’t poke one through. Our unbeaten streak continues to fourteen games and our magic number is 15 with 8 games to go.
One shot, one kill. Ipswich took us to task all game long but we scored the only goal of the game. Tom Boyle smashed home a goal just before the half hour mark and that’s all we needed. This was another great performance by our defense that allowed only 6 shots on target out of 33 taken. Our unbeaten streak continues to fifteen games and our magic number is 12 with 7 games to go.
We’re promoted! We gave up the lion’s share of shots and possession, but we turn two of our seven on target shots into goals. In fact, we deserved at least one or two more goals on great efforts that were turned away. Our unbeaten streak continues to sixteen games and our magic number is 9 with 6 games to go.
One game after securing promotion to the Premier League, we got hit with a bit of bad luck against Wigan. Credit to Wigan for putting pressure on our defense throughout the game with 9 shots on target out of 14 taken, but we were strangely wasteful in front of the net. We took 15 shots but only managed to put 4 on target and that led to a scoreless loss. Our magic number remains at 9 with 5 games to go.
