Huddersfield football fans march against policing restrictions

Huddersfield Town football fans have held a protest march against restrictions by the police for the Huddersfield Town game against Hull City.

Tickets to the game for Hull fans have been limited by the police and fans made to travel on official coaches to the match.

No Hull City fan will be able to travel to the stadium independently. Around 100 fans marched through Huddersfield town centre ending at the library.

"This afternoon's march has ended peacefully following a successful policing operation. We worked closely with the organiser beforehand to help him facilitate the event safely and I wish to thank those who took part for their conduct"

Mark Robins is reported to be in talks with Huddersfield Town over their vacant manager's position. Robins' current employers Coventry refused Town permission to talk with the former Rotherham and Barnsley boss earlier in the day.

But it's believed Robins has a clause in his contract which would allow him to leave should another club pay the correct level of compensation.

No decision yet on new Town boss

Academy coach Mark Lillis is likely to be in charge at Huddersfield Town until at least the middle of next week. Lillis has been in caretaker charge since Chairman Dean Hoyle sacked Simon Grayson two weeks ago, and he's overseen a win, a draw and a defeat.

Several candidates have already been interviewed, with former Scunthorpe and Southampton manager Nigel Adkins, and Graeme Jones, who's assistant boss at Wigan, still in the frame. Former England and Manchester United midfielder Nicky Butt is also an outside bet.

Today Lillis has been speaking about the managerial situation, the prospects for tomorrow's game against Championship leaders Cardiff, and last weekend's defeat against Derby County.
