John Gidman was City’s hero as he cracked in the last gasp free-kick equaliser.
But the game will be remembered for it’s unsavoury moments. Manager Mel machin was sent off by Ref Michael Peck, who also gave a late red card to Neil McNab.
Ian Brightwell had given City the lead but Huddersfield, in an effort to avenge the season’s earlier embarrassing 10-1 defeat, clawed their way into a 2-1 lead.
However with seconds ticking away up stepped veteran Gidman to curl a great free-kick into the net to earn the Blues a replay
