Huddersfield Town 2-1 Barnsley

20 Aug

Jonathan Hogg


Jonathan Hogg’s late winner was his first league goal for Huddersfield Town

Jonathan Hogg’s injury-time goal gave unbeaten Huddersfield Town victory over Barnsley and sent the Terriers to the top of the Championship table.

Huddersfield dominated possession in the first half and took the lead when full-back Chris Lowe gathered Elias Kachunga’s pass and fired in.

Barnsley equalised when Alfie Mawson headed home Marc Roberts’ throw-in.

Stefan Payne shot against the post for Barnsley before Kachunga’s pass found Hogg, who shot into the top corner.

The Terriers deserved their win, with Nahki Wells twice having efforts saved after the break and Rajiv van La Parra firing over from a good position.

Barnsley remain without a win at Huddersfield in more than 10 years, with their last away victory coming in May 2006.
