Huddersfield sets Football League record

BY foxsports • November 19, 2011

Huddersfield extended its unbeaten run to a history-making 43 games by beating Notts County 2-1 in England's Football League on Saturday.

The northern club is now just six matches short of Arsenal's English all-league record of 49 games undefeated, achieved by Arsene Wenger's ''Invincibles'' who went through the whole of the 2003-04 Premier League season without losing.

Since losing 4-1 to Southampton on Dec. 28 last year, Huddersfield - which plays in the third-tier League One - has won 25 games and drawn 18.

That run surpasses Nottingham Forest's 42-game unbeaten run across the 1977-78 and 78-79 seasons, which stood as a Football League record as it came before the launch of the Premier League in 1992.

Huddersfield is managed by former Newcastle midfielder Lee Clark.
