Pilkington injury a blow for us all.

KARL ROBINSON is a big fan of Lee Clark - and Anthony Pilkington.

The MK Dons manager, left, was sad to see Town's talented winger sidelined for the season by a broken leg and ankle dislocation sustained in March.

"We send our best wishes to Anthony. He's a fantastic player and the league misses him because he is an exceptional talent, and you don't like to see players like him out off the game for long periods," said the 30-year-old Scouser who spent his playing career in non-league football before coaching at Liverpool and Blackburn.

Of opposite number Clark, Robinson added: "Lee is a manager I respect an awful lot.

"When we beat Peterborough last month hewas one of the first to text me to say what a great performance it was, and that shows you the quality of the man.

"They have been among it for the last two years and he has done a wonderful job, so it should be a great game."

Robinson is aiming to deny Town a double after they beat his side 4-1 at the Galpharm in November, when Antony Kay and Gary Roberts joined two-goal Jordan Rhodes on the scoresheet.

"It was a weird game at Huddersfield," he recalled.

"We had the better of the first 15 minutes and then capitulated for the next hour where we just couldn't cope with them.

"We finished strongly but by that point the game was effectively over and they had let off in their performance too."
