- HUDDERSFIELD TOWN
For Terriers fans, Gallen went from hero to villain as he spurned the chance to win Huddersfield their second victory in 18 games when goalkeeper Ludek Miklosko palmed away his late spot-kick. For their part, relieved Rangers, themselves winless in nine matches, could have few complaints about their draw. Lou Macari's men started with necessary urgency and Gallen gave the troubled Terriers the lead with an overhead kick that gave Miklosko no chance in his first start of the season. But the division's bottom side quickly came under siege, and promptly collapsed on the half-hour mark. Cannily played a one two of sorts in midfield with Peter Crouch, then confidently swept the ball home for his fourth of the season. The goal ignited Rangers as they took control either side of half time. On 41 minutes Paul Peschisolido forced a fine save from
Vanes with a stinging 20 yard shot
and from the resulting corner Karl Ready headed Chorister Warren's kick
against the post.
