Clark keeps looking forward

Huddersfield manager Lee Clark immediately turned his attention to Saturday's clash with MK Dons after seeing his side halt Sheffield United's unbeaten start with a comprehensive 3-0 win.

Lee Novak scored twice and Oscar Gobern added a third at Bramall Lane to extend Huddersfield's unbeaten league run to 33 games. Next up for the Terriers is a clash with the Dons and Clark knows his side face another stern test.

He said: "MK Dons is a tough one for us. They're a tremendous passing team and they've had a superb start. They didn't play, so they'll be fresh."

The Huddersfield boss was thrilled with his players' display at Bramall Lane and was particularly impressed with goalkeeper Ian Bennett.

Clark said: "All in all I was delighted with the performance. We looked very strong and posed a threat all night. When they put pressure on us, we got blocks in and the keeper made some good saves. Ian (Bennett) did fantastic.

"Since taking over from Alex Smithies, who has a long-term injury, Ian has been outstanding for us. I made four changes and the lads who've come off the bench have been producing."

Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson was disappointed with his side's defensive display.

Wilson said: "We've been strong this season, defensively, but we got bullied a bit.

"The goals weren't difficult to defend from our point of view and you can't recover from three goals down.

"We can't concede goals like we did. It's the first setback we've had and it's a bit of a reality check."
