I don't check twitter for 15 min, log back on and find #htafc have gone into total meltdown.....WOW— @VickiBrian 02 March 2013
Should not overlook the part played by David again today. A crucial assist and 6th goal in 13 games. #bhafc— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 March 2013
Apologies, I got a bit behind there for a couple of minutes!
It became three goals in six minutes when Mackail-Smith was fouled just inside the box and DAVID LOPEZ converted the spot kick.
Lynch replaced Gerrard before play could resume.
And Ulloa exited to a standing ovation, Forster-Caskey taking his place.
Two minutes later ULLOA had his hat-trick as he outpaced the defence, rounded Smithies and shot into an empty net.
Albion regained the lead on 76 minutes from a corner Huddersfield felt should have been awarded. A Bruno cross flicked off a defender to lead to the flag kick and, when it was delivered by David Lopez, ULLOA rose to head inside the far post.
Att: 25,831 (733 away)
Vaughan's yellow was his tenth of the season and meant a two-game ban - starting against Albion's play-off rivals Middlesbrough in midweek.
Albion sent on Mackail-Smith for Buckley in the 74th minute.
Centre-back Clarke was again Huddersfield's saviour right in front of the visiting fans on 68 minutes - again from David Lopez. The Albion midfielder met a low cross with a perfectly timed right foot drive which was going wide of Smithies but Clarke stuck out a foot to block it a yard or so in front of goal.
Novak replaced Vaughan up front for Town in the 69th minute.
Arfield replaced Gobern in midfield on 65 minutes. Moments later Vaughan was booked for a foul on El-Abd.
As the pressure continued, David Lopez swung over a great cross from the right but Barnes headed over beyond the far post.
Albion were posing just sporadic threats. But they almost went ahead again in the 62nd minute after good graft from Ulloa. The centre-forward was second favourite to reach Buckley's under-hit low cross ahead of the near post but he got there first and laid the ball off to David Lopez, whose angled drive was cleared off line at the far post by Clarke.
Barnes went on for Dicker moments later - in the 57th minute - and immediately took up a role in support of Ulloa.
Buckley had a chance to run down the right on 56 minutes but had just one target - the distant figure of Ulloa beyond the far post - and was unable to pick him out.
#bhafc need to get Buckley isolated now against Dixon. A red could result.— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 March 2013
Left-back Dixon picked up a needless booking for delaying a free-kick after tripping Buckley.
Orlandi was close to atoning for his first-half wasted chance just two minutes after the restart. He helped on Calderon's cross to Ulloa, who headed it back to him. Orlandi then flicked the dropping ball away from a defender and volleyed left-footed on the turn. His effort went wide of Smithies' dive - but just wide of the far post.
Second half is in progress.
Half-time. Bury 0, Crawley 1. Good half from Reds but they perhaps should have been further ahead. Bury have been very poor— @stevehollis75 02 March 2013
HALF TIME: #BHAFC 1-1 #HTAFC Johnny Byrne: "Overall performance is good. Lopez impressive. A few questions to be asked about conceeding."— @BBCSussexSport 02 March 2013
Unexpected setback for #bhafc, the way the game was developing. Interesting to see how they respond.— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 March 2013
41: #HTAFC 1 - 1 #BHAFC GOAL: WHAT A GOAL!! A superb overhead kick from Vaughan draws Town level against the run of play. Get In! #UTT— @htafcdotcom 02 March 2013
Albion were on top - but Huddersfield dragged themselves level with a great bit of finishing in the 43rd minute. A cross from the left was headed back by Danns, helped on by Gobern and VAUGHAN, with his back to goal, beat Kuszczak with an overhead bicycle kick.
Centre-back Gerrard was booked in the 40th minute for blocking off Bruno just outside the box - but the Huddersfield was clearly angry at the decision, feeling he had no time to get out of the way of the home right-back's run.
Bruno produced a great bit of skill down the right which got Buckley homing in on the penalty area but his low cross failed to pick out a team mate - with Orlandi looking his most likely target near the penalty spot.
Tempers flared on 32 minutes when Danns floored Hammond with a late tackle. After consulting with his assistant closest to the incident, ref Ward showed the former Palace man the yellow card - to the dismay of home fans.
GOAL! #BHAFC 1-0 #HTAFC Johnny Byrne: "What a magnificent goal from #Ulloa great header, what a finish."— @BBCSussexSport 02 March 2013
Goals change games. #bhafc in charge now.— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 March 2013
Orlandi should have doubled the lead four minutes later when a quickly taken free-kick by Buckley got him in behind his marker Hunt. But, one-on-one with the keeper, Orlandi could not guide the ball beyond Smithies.
Orlandi picked up the ball on the left and whipped in a fine cross to the near post, where ULLOA got in front of his marker to head home his first Championship goal at The Amex.
David Lopez did exactly the same from the resulting flag kick. This time Buckley got more power on his volley and saw it blocked. But the danger was not over.
When Buckley won a second corner, David Lopez pulled it back to the edge of the box for the winger, whose shot deflected off Clarke's block and over.
David was seeing a lot of the ball in areas just right of centre.
Most of Albion's better work early on involved David Lopez. He did really well to bring the ball out of defence when Albion cleared a corner and swap passes with Buckley before standing up a cross to the far post. But Buckley could get no real power in his header and Smithies gathered easily.
Buckley made a reasonably promising start. He fed off an Ulloa touch to get to the byline but his cross from a tight angle went straight to the hands of Smithies.
Albion did not settle in the opening minutes. And when a foul on Buckley offered a chance to put the ball into the danger zone, Orlandi's free-kick failed to get past Danns on the edge of the area.
Calde never lets #bhafc down but Bridge is still as much of a miss as Vicente. He was outstanding again against Burnley.— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 March 2013
The visitors were looking to close down Albion as they attempted to play out from the back.
Then Hunt's cleverly angled pass from right-back was only inches too long for Vaughan in front of goal.
Huddersfield set up in their anticipated 4-2-3-1 but it soon became clear the wide men in the three would have licence to get forward. Scannell made a terrific break down their left before winning a corner which was headed away at the near post.
Game is now in progress, the teams having changed ends before kick-off.
Calderon is captain of the Seagulls today
#bhafc expect to announce new shirt sponsors in time for Palace's visit.— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 March 2013
Don't want to labour the point but Vicente has started 15 out of 80 matches (on bench for 12 others). #bhafc— @AndyNaylorArgus 02 March 2013
Huddersfield make one change - Hunt for Woods at right-back - to the side which ground out a much-needed 1-0 win at Burnley on Tuesday.
You will have seen the key team news. We are told Bridge and Vicente both have minor knocks. The ever-willing Calderon comes in to defence and Will Buckley is not a bad player to bring in to attacking areas is he? Having said that, it's always disappointing when Vicente misses out.
So they made it into the top six. Now can Albion stay there against a Huddersfield side who have suddenly discovered some defensive backbone?
