Town took a two-goal lead through Oliver Norwood, who scored on the rebound after his initial penalty was saved, and Lee Novak's header. Reda Johnson's header made it 2-1 and Town had Joel Lynch sent off for a late tackle, but  Joe Mattock was then red carded for a second booking. Adam Clayton scored the third from the spot after a handball in the area.  Huddersfield were handed a penalty when Jack Hunt was brought down in the area by Jermaine Johnson after James Vaughan's excellent half volley rebounded off the crossbar. Norwood saw his initial spot kick saved by Our keeper Chris Kirkland but was quickest to respond to tap home the rebound. We found ourselves 2-0 down, Novak showing excellent movement to head home Danny Ward's centre. Johnson reduced the arrears with a header from a Jose Semedo long throw before Town were reduced to 10 men when Lynch needlessly scythed down Antonio on the touchline. The teams were soon level, in terms of players at least, after Mattock pulled a rampaging Ward back and was sent off for a second bookable offence on the stroke of half-time. Our substitute Nejc Pecnik came close to equalising for us after the break before Town were awarded a second penalty in controversial circumstances. Referee Graham Salisbury had initially waved play on after Hunt's cross hit McCabe's hand but awarded the spot kick after speaking to his assistant. Clayton stepped up this time and made no mistake.
