Goodnight

FT: Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

That's all we have time for this evening.

EFL Cup action takes centre stage for the next two evenings, but if you love your Championship football then we'll be back on Thursday evening when Wolves travel to QPR.

Until then, goodbye. 

Wigan climb a place

Wigan climb one place in the Championship table after Warren Joyce's first victory as boss, going above Cardiff on goal difference to 21st

They're also level on points with Wolves, and are only behind Paul Lambert's side on goals scored.

With Rotherham cut adrift at the bottom, only one point separates the sides from 19th to 23rd.

Huddersfield remain sixth, only a point above Sheffield Wednesday.

If you want to relive the action then take a read of Ian Westbrook's report.

Post-match reaction

FT: Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Wigan captain Stephen Warnock told Sky Sports: "Yanic has been asked to play a new role which is a bit alien to him but he's dealt with it really well and he was a threat all night.

"We knew that if we came here and made it hard for them that with Yanic's pace up front we were always going to make chances and it's important that you take those chances when they come about."

Post-match reaction

FT: Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Wigan forward Yanic Wildschut told Sky Sports: "We're happy we won, we needed the points because we didn't want the gap to become too big.

"It was hard today against a good team, but a goal and assist for me was not bad as it was only my second game up front."

FT: Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Former Huddersfield goalkeeper Matt Glennon on BBC Radio Leeds:

"Huddersfield shouldn’t be conceding two goals like that against Wigan who are 23rd in the league

"The manager’s going to go absolutely berserk in there and rightly so and they’ve let him down and they’ve let the supporters down.

"They need a target man who is a bit of a player as well. We know they can do better at the back but you've got to score goals and they never look like they are going to score more than one goal."

FULL-TIME

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

And there we have it, the full-time whistle goes and Wigan have their first win under Warren Joyce.

Huddersfield's slump in form continues as they have now gone four games without a win.

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Huddersfield send keeper Danny Ward up but it's a poor deliver and Wigan clear. Anywhere will do for the Latics.

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Rajiv van La Parra earns Huddersfield a late corner - and Luke Garbutt earns a yellow card for time wasting.

Last chance for the Terriers?

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

And what a chance that was for Huddersfield to equalise.

Philip Billing climbs highest in the box to reach Tommy Smith's cross but can only head over the bar.

Jussi Jaaskelainen will take his time over this goal kick.

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

We're into four minutes of stoppage time...

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

That's some header from Wigan defender Jake Buxton to clear Aaron Mooy's teasing centre.

Elias Kachunga was waiting to nod in if he failed to make contact.

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Two minutes of normal time left and Wigan are defending resolutely.

The vigour has gone out of the Huddersfield fans' drum beat in the stands.

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Time is running out for Huddersfield. They've not really tested Jussi Jaaskelainen since Wigan went back in front, although they might, on another night, had had two penalties.

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Max Power tries his luck for Wigan from the edge of the box but Danny Ward gets across to save.

Only 11 minutes now between Wigan and their first league win at Huddersfield. Only Sheffield Wednesday have beaten the Terriers on their own turf this season.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Wigan again look to take the sting out of this game by making their second change.

Off comes Nathan Byrne and on, in his place, is former Manchester United attacking midfielder Nick Powell.

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

There was the chance for Wigan to wrap this up.

Yanic Wildschut nicks the ball off Jon Stankovic near halfway and races towards the Huddersfield goal before teeing up Michael Jacobs.

The former Wolves man should really hit the target but can only scoop his effort high, wide and handsome. A wasted opportunity.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

It's Wigan's turn to make a change as the scorer of their first goal, Reece Burke, is replaced by centre-half Dan Burn.

It looks like the Latics will defend deep and rely ever more on their pace on the break.

YELLOW CARD

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Huddersfield defender Tommy Smith grabs a handful of David Perkins' shirt as Wigan look to break and earns his fifth booking of the season.

He will miss the Terriers' next game at Blackburn.

PENALTY APPEAL

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Huddersfield want another penalty as Stephen Warnock twice has a nibble at Elias Kachunga inside the box.

In fact, the first coming together is more than a 'nibble' as Warnock appears to shove the striker over. Again referee Tony Harrington is unmoved, much to the dismay of the Terriers fans behind the goal.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Huddersfield boss David Wagner looks to his bench and makes his last change, throwing on Danish midfielder Philip Billing in place of Jonathan Hogg.

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Wigan's second goal hasn't stemmed Huddersfield's tempo as they again set up camp in the visitors' half.

Rajiv van La Parra tries his luck with a cross-shot that is hit with plenty of venom but which is just too high for two onrushing Terriers attackers.

PENALTY APPEAL

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

That's got to be a penalty hasn't it?!

Nahki Wells bursts into the Wigan box and goes down after appearing to have his ankles clipped by Luke Garbutt.

Huddersfield want a spot-kick but referee Tony Harrington says no. That could be controversial, although replays suggest the man in black may not have had a clear view.

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Yanic Wildschut is almost at it again as Huddersfield get caught short once more.

This time the powers down the left and dinks the ball goalwards, but with no support the Terriers can this time clear their lines.

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Former Huddersfield goalkeeper Matt Glennon on BBC 5 live sports extra and BBC Radio Leeds:

"The defence have let the team down again. All that fantastic forward play is a waste of time if you can’t defend."

GOAL Yanic Wildschut

Huddersfield Town 1-2 Wigan Athletic

Unbelieveably Wigan are back in front despite all Huddersfield's pressure - and the home side have only themselves to blame.

The Terriers commit too many men forward, Max Power dinks a pass over the top and Yanic Wildschut runs unchallenged from inside his own half to round Danny Ward and tap in.

Think Fernando Torres for Chelsea at the Nou Camp and you've got it.

Huddersfield Town 1-1 Wigan Athletic

Huddersfield have had almost 70% of possession in the first 10 minutes of the second period and they're playing at quite a tempo.

Can they keep it up, or will Wigan hold on and come back into the game later on?

Huddersfield Town 1-1 Wigan Athletic

Huddersfield's tails are really up now as Aaron Mooy tries his luck from range after more good work by Nahki Wells.

The on-loan Manchester City midfielder's effort swerves all over the place but Jussi Jaaskelainen gets behind it and palms it down before gathering at the second attempt.

The momentum in this game is currently all one way.

Huddersfield Town 1-1 Wigan Athletic

Former Huddersfield goalkeeper Matt Glennon on BBC 5 live sports extra and BBC Radio Leeds:

"Now Huddersfield have got the breakthrough, Wigan can’t sit back and this is an opportunity to go on and win this game. Aaron Mooy’s midfielder has not gone with him and he gets his goal."

YELLOW CARD Max Power

Huddersfield Town 1-1 Wigan Athletic

That goal seems to have rattled Wigan as Max Power needlessly clatters into Chris Lowe near halfway and earns a booking for his troubles.

GOAL Aaron Mooy

Huddersfield Town 1-1 Wigan Athletic

Huddersfield have a reward for their fast start to the second period.

Nahki Wells drives into the box and pulls the ball back across the face of goal to the back post where Aaron Mooy is on hand to tap in.

We're all level.

Huddersfield Town 0-1 Wigan Athletic

The Huddersfield fans certainly can't be accused of not getting behind their side this evening. The drums are going and they're making an absolute din.

Their side has started the second half on the front foot too, as Nahki Wells flicks a header from Chris Lowe's cross straight at Jussi Jaaskelainen.

KICK-OFF

Huddersfield Town 0-1 WIgan Athletic

Wigan get us back under way. They're halfway to their first ever league win at Huddersfield after scoring their first league goal at the John Smith's Stadium.

In case you missed it earlier this evening, there's been another managerial casualty in the Championship, with Rotherham United boss Kenny Jackett resigning after only 39 days in charge at the New York Stadium.

The 54-year-old drew one and lost four of his five games in charge, with a club statement saying that "Kenny's resignation came as a shock to the club and is disappointing".

It was quite a weekend in the EFL, which started on Friday night with Henri Lansbury's hat-trick inspiring Nottingham Forest to a stunning 5-2 win at Barnsley.

And it continued on Saturday with Blackburn Rovers bringing Newcastle's nine-game winning run to a shuddering halt by winning at St James' Park, while Peter Odemwingie not only had an early bath but also took to Twitter to apologise for being sent off while Rotherham's game against Leeds was still going on.

For a full catch-up on the biggest stories across the Championship, League One and League Two, take a read of Brent Pilnick's take on Saturday's action.
