Match ends, Charlton Athletic 1, Huddersfield Town 2.
Huddersfield recorded their first win of the season at the expense of Charlton Athletic at the Valley.
The Terriers went in front when Harry Bunn's volley bounced over Nick Pope in the home goal.
Wigan loanee Emyr Huws made it 2-0 with a free-kick before Naby Sarr pulled one back from Johann Berg Gudmundsson's free-kick six minutes later.
Zakarya Bergdich and Simon Makienok had chances to level for the Addicks but they failed to hit the target.
The Terriers had failed to win any of their opening seven games in the Championship and League Cup to leave Chris Powell's side just one point off the bottom of the table.
They got off to the perfect start thanks to Bunn's finish from Sean Scannell's centre, though home goalkeeper Pope could perhaps have done better.
Bunn and Mustapha Carayol both came close to making it 2-0 before debutant Huws did just that with a wonderful free-kick from 25 yards.
Berg Gudmundsson's free-kick was headed home by Sarr five minutes before the break as Charlton looked to mount a comeback.
Despite dominating the second half the Addicks were unable to really test Jed Steer in the Huddersfield goal as the Terriers held out for a vital win.
Charlton manager Guy Luzon: "Nick Pope did a great job the last seven games, he played very well.
"Also the last home game against Rotherham (a 1-1 draw) he played very well, he didn't have any problem with confidence. He's a good goalkeeper.
"We need to focus on how we improve our quality in attack and our quality in defence."
Huddersfield boss Chris Powell, who previously managed Charlton: "We should have won one or two games earlier, maybe it's fate. Who knows? I'm very happy at Huddersfield. Of course people will just connect my past with the result but it's about the now, and the future.
"I wouldn't expect anything less of the fans here, they've been superb with me from the day I walked in, in June 1998, they've been first class with me."
