The big voice of sport

MARK Robins certainly has some work to do with the players at Huddersfield Town and might also have to ask his chairman to draft in some emergency loan players to help.

It really is squeaky bum time with two months to go and Dean Hoyle would not have expected to find his team down there, despite losing striker Jordan Rhodes to Blackburn.

I know from experience with Doncaster Rovers last season, after four years in the Championship, that once you are sucked in it’s very hard to fight back up.

I have to admit there wasn’t a lot to impress me in the televised cup tie with Wigan last Sunday and I bet Robins felt the same way.

Robins is a man of contacts, and well thought of in the game, so let us hope he can draft in some quality to help fire Town up the table, while those players already there need to step up to the plate or it’s League One next term.

Halifax Town fans at the Dual Seal Stadium on Tuesday night were not at all pleased about having to drive to Rochdale for Saturday’s ‘home’ game with Stalybridge.

“Fancy letting some Aussie rugby players train on the pitch in the state it is in and then ask us to go over there for a home game,” said one.

Melbourne Storm had an opposed session with Halifax and that would add another 60 minutes more wear and tear to the pitch.

The Town fans are pleased with striker, model and part time actor Gareth Seddon and reckon he will be better than Jamie Vardy.

Any day now Seddon will be on our screens behind the bar in Corrie and making a few of the female viewers reach for more ice for their gin and tonics!
