Huddersfield boss Lee Clark hailed Arsenal loanee Benik Afobe after his side strengthened their grip on second spot in League One after a 3-0 win over Notts County.

Afobe had a hand in all three Town goals and Clark said: "Benik is a boy with immense talent. He has unbelievable power and pace and you would think he is a grown man.

"We knew that because he was 17 going on 18 that he would have his ups and downs but he is a fantastic kid. He did everything but score - but we will keep his goals for when we need them."

Huddersfield are four points clear of third-placed Peterborough and have seven matches left.

Clark said: "I want us to win them all but even if we do it still might not be enough.

"Southampton have games in hand and Peterborough are also going very well. It could go right to the wire."


County are just two points point clear of the drop zone and assistant manager Alex Rae warned his side needed to improve.

They also have not scored in four matches, and Rae said: "We need to sort that out and quickly.

"The gaffer (Paul Ince) made it known in the dressing room that we now have 10 cup ties left.

"We have one or two games in hand but we have to dig in and fight for each other. We need to be more together."
