Huddersfield manager Lee Clark declared himself pleased with the 3-1 win over promotion rivals MK Dons - but insisted his side still have room for improvement.

Goals from Scott Arfield, Lee Peltier and substitute Danny Cadamarteri sealed a seventh win in nine games for the in-form Terriers, while Mathias Doumbe netted a late consolation goal for the Dons.

Clark said: "The lads are having a little moan that I'm never happy but I'm always striving for perfection. You never get perfection because you're always raising the bar."

He added: "I thought they were the better side for the first 25 minutes and caused us lots of problems with their movement. But then we scored from a fantastic move and a great strike and we kicked on from there."

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson admits his side's automatic promotion hopes are over but was still happy with his team's performance, if not the result.

He said: "It was a really good game of football, it ebbed and flowed but I thought we had an awful lot of the play.

"I'm really pleased with the players. I'm disappointed with the result, it hurts me when people pay to come into the stadium and we don't give them the result they were looking for.

"But that's as good a performance as we've put in over the last two or three weeks and we've won the other games. If we just keep doing the right things and we keep playing that way I'm sure things will go the right way for us.

"You've got to hold your hands up and say that probably ends our automatic promotion hopes. But of the teams that are in there, we've shown that we can compete with them and create more chances than them.

"I just hope we keep believing in what we're doing and I'm sure we will. I've just looked at the stats for all our attempts at goal and it's ridiculous."
