Huddersfield   1 - 0   Walsall

Huddersfield v Walsall

Huddersfield 1-0 Walsall

Anthony Pilkington's superb individual effort condemned bottom-side Walsall to defeat at Huddersfield.

The Terriers earned the win with 10 men after Alan Lee was shown a red card for a suspected elbow on Manny Smith.

Pilkington, who has now scored six goals in five games, charged at the defence and fired in from 30-yards out.

The Saddlers saw Aaron Lescott's 25 yard effort well saved while Alex Nicholls should have done better with a free header in stoppage time.


Huddersfield Manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:
"When you go down to 10 men so early you always think it could be a horrible day, but the lads stuck together so well, showed determination and real desire.

"We showed we have creativity to get opportunities, we could have made it more than 1-0.

"Towards the end a little bit of nerves came in as they started throwing everything at us, but the experienced players are coming to the fore for us at the minute."
