Cardiff City on away loss to Huddersfield at John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday. Huddersfield were looking to get back to winning ways after losing their last match 2-1 to Wigan Athletic. Cardiff, meanwhile, had been hopeful of extending their winning run, after a 3-2 victory against Middlesbrough. Huddersfield are now in 23rd place on the table and have 7 points while Cardiff sit in 18th with 11 points after 11 matches.

Huddersfield opened the score, when Jordan Rhodes gave them the lead, 8 minutes in, finishing the first half 1-0. With both teams struggling to produce anything meaningful in the second half though, the match ended 1-0.
