Huddersfield boss Lee Clark praised his players as they extended their club-record unbeaten run to 23 matches by beating Dagenham 2-1.

The Terriers kept up the pressure on second-placed Southampton, meaning they remain outside of the automatic promotion places on just goal difference. Jordan Rhodes was the hero once again, netting twice to overshadow Romain Vincelot's effort, much to the delight of Clark.

Clark said: "We can only win our games and if Southampton pip us to automatic promotion you have to hold your hands up."

He added: "We are unbeaten in 23 matches - that's half a season - and all my players have played a part.

"All my lads have worked damned hard in the second half of the season and we will keep going right to the end."

Dagenham boss John Still refused to give up on his side's League One status despite slipping into the bottom four.

"It is still all to play for," he said. "Our performance was more than enough to get something out of the game, and I'm told that TV replays showed we should have had two penalties including one in the first half when Danny Green went down, but that's our luck at the moment.

"When we play the way we can, we are hard to contain. We have given both Brighton and Huddersfield a fright and this is an unbelievably tough league.

"To come to Huddersfield and perform like this - when the gap between the two sides in terms of resources is embarrassing - is great for us.

"What we need to compete is about £2 million. We are paying wages of £400 a week and that puts it in context."
