Match Preview

Greer back for Withdean farewell Brighton captain Gordon Greer returns from suspension for the last-ever match at the Withdean Stadium against Huddersfield. But goalkeeper Casper Ankergren and striker Glenn Murray are injury doubts as the League One champions bid farewell to their home of 12 years. Centre-half Greer has completed a four-match ban after he was sent off against Sheffield Wednesday earlier this month - his second red card of the season. Ankergren was forced off against Colchester on Monday with a dead leg so Peter Brezovan is on standby again, while 22-goal top scorer Murray missed out with a shoulder injury and is unlikely to be risked. The Seagulls will begin next season in the Championship at their new 22,500-seater Amex Stadium. Huddersfield manager Lee Clark will choose from an unchanged squad. Clark has no new injury or suspension problems as Town look to extend their unbeaten club-record run to 24 matches and maintain the pressure on second-placed Southampton, who play at Brentford. Midfielder Joey Gudjonsson could return to the starting line-up, while strikers Lee Novak and Danny Cadamarteri are also pushing for recalls after being named among the substitutes in Monday's win over Dagenham & Redbridge. First-choice goalkeeper Alex Smithies (knee), winger Anthony Pilkington (ankle/leg), defender Liam Ridehalgh (foot) and midfielder Damien Johnson (knee) remain long-term absentees. Despite their unbeaten run, the Terriers cannot afford to drop any points in pursuit of automatic promotion as they remain level on points with Southampton, who have a game in hand.

Match Report

Ward gives Terriers late bite Huddersfield substitute Daniel Ward hit a last-minute winner to keep alive his side's hopes of automatic promotion with a 3-2 victory at champions Brighton. The Terriers twice led with two goals from striker Benik Afobe, but were pegged back with Ashley Barnes and substitute Matt Sparrow replying for the Seagulls. Ward gave Lee Clark's men their fifth successive away league win with an unstoppable low shot following Afobe's pass. Huddersfield midfielder Scott Arfield had a first-time shot saved by Peter Brezoban before striker Afobe, on-loan from Arsenal, fired Huddersfield ahead after only eight minutes. Afobe got the better of Gordon Greer by turning fully and driving a shot underneath the body of goalkeeper Peter Brezovan. Brighton striker Chris Wood, on-loan from West Brom, almost brought the Seagulls level by firmly heading a cross from Liam Bridcutt against the crossbar. Brighton equalised two minutes after the break when Barnes hit his 19th goal of the season from the penalty spot after Elliott Bennett had been brought down by Kevin Kilbane. Huddersfield goalkeeper Ian Bennett dived full length to his right to parry Barnes' spot kick, but the striker reacted quickly to head the rebound into the other side of the goal. Afobe struck again to restore Huddersfield's lead in the 61st minute by cashing in on a defensive gaffe by Inigo Calderon, who left goalkeeper Brezovan stranded by chesting the ball down inside the area. Huddersfield piled on late pressure and defender Jamie McCombe twice forced excellent saves from Brezovan before Ward's late winner.
