Best Finish Ever?

I went to Huddersfield against Brentford on Saturday and the start of the match was really quite dull. Isaiah Rankin (boo - ex City) scored a good goal from the corner of the penalty area and then Pavel Abbott chipped the Brentford keeper from a seemingly impossible position. The linesman hadn't woken up after half time not raising his flag for Brentford's offside 2nd. The referee then lost control of the game and ended up sending two players off. A Brentford player got injured and when he was walking off got hit by a "missile" from the crowd (rumoured to be a plastic bottle top thrown by a 10 year old boy) and went down like he'd been shot! Town then piled on the pressure and were rewarded with a 92nd minute equaliser. Even more incredible Boothy rose to head a long throw into the goal in the 95th minute. 3-2. Joint top of the league. Fantastic!!!

Town play Blackburn in the random drink sponsored cup tomorrow night. Hopefully Blackburn will go the same way as Spurs. I will be playing for the students against the seniors in a Huddersfield accountants 5 a-side thing tomorrow. I've not played for 16 months so this will give me a chance to see how much worse I've got.
