Terriers take charge in play-off semi
Huddersfield Town are in pole position in their League One play-off semi-final after 2-0 victory in the first leg tie at MK Dons.
Jordan Rhodes set them on their way with his 39th goal of the season in the 32nd minute when he glanced home a 32nd-minute cross from 17-goal strike partner Lee Novak, who wasted a glorious second-half chance to double the visitors' advantage at stadiummk.
But Jack Hunt's well-taken finish ensured Town took firm control of the tie ahead of Tuesday's second leg at the Galpharm Stadium, and left the Terriers dreaming of Wembley success in what is their third successive attempt at play-off glory.
It was a woeful afternoon for a lacklustre Dons, who were embarking on their third play-off campaign in four years as they bid to make the second tier for the first time since their change of identity in 2004.
The hosts almost pulled a goal back deep into second-half stoppage time, but Town goalkeeper Ian Bennett pulled off an athletic stop from Jabo Ibehre's header.
