JORDAN RHODES captured the headlines again with a hat trick, despite commentators and pundits claiming the first was an own goal by Jimmy Smith.
The Terriers hit-man claimed the match ball at the end of the game and referee James Linington confirmed in his match report that the goal was indeed Jordan's.
Huddersfield had to do things the hard way after conceding the opening goal to former Leeds midfielder Matthew Spring on 14 minutes
It took just FOUR minutes for Town to fight back with Rhodes scoring a backheeler into the net that was deflected in off an Orient defender.
Jack Hunt picked up his 10th yellow card of the season in the 33rd minute - a booking that will now rule him out of the Sheffield Wednesday and Bournemouth games.
That man Jordan Rhodes was there to pop up in first half stoppage time to put the visitors in-front for the first time in the game.
Sean Morrison launched his delap-esque throw into the Orient box, Alan Lee flicked it on and Rhodes pounced to prod the ball home from close range.
HALF TIME: Leyton Orient 1-2 Huddersfield Town.
Huddersfield emerged for the second half showing two changes with Scott Arfield replacing Lee Novak, who had picked up a knock. Also entering the fray was Calum Woods who replaced Jack Hunt who was carrying a knock and a booking.
The change saw Tom Clarke move to right back and Woods went to left-back.
Town played well in the second half and soaked up Orient pressure without really coming under any serious threat and it was that man Rhodes who sealed the three points and the game for The Terriers in the 90th minute.
Alex Smithies launched a long ball forward and substitute Danny Cadamarteri challenged for the ball which broke loose to Rhodes, who saw off three Leyton Orient defenders before prodding home past the helpless Rachubka from around 12 yards out.
