First Half Proves Costly
Huddersfield's Championship season continued with a defeat, which follows the recent pattern of results, when they lost four-two to Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday.
It couldn't have been a worse first half for Huddersfield with Sergi Canos, Lasse Vibe and Alan Judge all scoring in the opening 45-minutes to put Brentford three-up by half time, the Bees were three-nil up around the 30-minute mark in fact!
A goal in the opening minute of the second half from Joe Lolley gave Huddersfield hope but Judge soon ended this again when he converted a penalty having been fouled by Ben Chilwell.
Town had the last say when Kyle Dempsey scored in injury-time but this was a mere consolation.
At four-one, and with 10-minutes to play, Nahki Wells did strike the post, which had that gone in it might have made for an interesting finale....Despite this defeat Huddersfield remain in 19th place but others collected points below Town to close the gap.
These were the other results.

Some interesting results with some expected outcomes, and some not so!
Middlesbrough consolidated their place at the top of the Championship, and ended Brighton unbeaten start to the season, with a resounding three-nil win at the Amex Stadium to know they'll go into Christmas top of the pile.
It's been a difficult few weeks for Burnley but the Clarets got back to winning ways with a resounding four-nil win against struggling Charlton with another struggling side Rotherham causing an upset to see off the challenge of Hull with Neil Redfearn's side winning two-nil at the New York Stadium.
Rivals Derby and Nottingham Forest also collected good wins against Ipswich and MK Dons respectively.
On Sunday we saw a great result for Sheffield Wednesday with the Owls going into Christmas with a four-one win Wolves at Hillsborough with the second Brian McDermott era of Reading beginning with a one-nil win over Blackburn, who had been on an unbeaten run, at the Madejski Stadium.
Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
