Clark: We can claim second spot

Huddersfield boss Lee Clark admitted his side were second-best in the 1-1 draw at home to rivals Peterborough but said they remain focused on winning automatic promotion. Posh midfielder Grant McCann scored a penalty on 41 minutes after Town's Lee Peltier felled Craig Mackail-Smith in the box. Huddersfield`s Gary Roberts then missed from the spot before Terriers substitute Jack Hunt took Huddersfield's unbeaten run to 20 games with a stunning last-gasp equaliser. Clark said: "We missed three sitters in the first half but I'm not going to kid myself. They were far superior. In the first half we didn't get to grips with them. It looked as if the occasion got to us. But the lads showed terrific character to hang on in there and get the equaliser. "We are 20 games unbeaten and yet Southampton have still gone above us. That shows how tight this league is but we're not giving up on automatic promotion." He added he was delighted by Hunt's goal and said: "Jack's very quick and a good athlete who likes to get forward."
