    Liam McGuire named a very strong starting 11 for the tie against Sheffield Wednesday, with Foderingham, Egan, Freeman, Bodin and Maddison all making their debuts.

    It only took 8 minutes for the season's first goal.
    Billy Bodin made a run down the left, before laying the ball off to Vaughan, for the striker to smash into the top corner.
    Just after the half hour, Nahki Wells got Huddersfield's second.
    Maddison played a perfect through ball for Wells to run onto, and on the edge of the box, the striker hit the ball first time, right into the top corner.
    Hammill almost made it three before half time, but Westwood denied him with a great reaction save.
    James Vaughan picked up a knock in the first half, and was replaced by Danny Ward at half time.

    Huddersfield continued their pressure into the second half, causing more trouble for Wednesday's defence.
    The visitors got one back after the hour, when May broke through The Terrier's defence, and guided the ball off the post and in.
    With 3 minutes left, Wednesday equalised.
    Despite being at least 5 yards offside, Mendy received the ball, and finished it past Foderingham.
    But on his debut, Billy Bodin found the winner.
    He used his pace to beat the defence, before finishing the ball off at the near post.

    James Vaughan suffered a hyper extended knee injury, and will miss the next 3 weeks.

    This game saw Liam McGuire's 100 goal scored for his team, and also his 100th goal against, in his managerial career.

    Another quick start gave Huddersfield the lead after 7 minutes.
    Ward drove a low cross into the box, for Maddison to poke in his first Huddersfield goal.
    Ten minutes later, Bodin doubled the lead.
    He was played in by Maddison, and finished the ball into the far corner.
    Huddersfield were running riot, and on the half hour Danny Ward got their third.
    Maddison again played the ball through, and the winger smashed the ball into the bottom corner.

    James Maddison went down in the second half after a collision in the box, and had to be taken off.
    Thankfully his injury wasn't as bad as first feared and he'll only be out for around a week with a bruised shoulder.

    A very dominant game, that showed Huddersfield's firepower.

    Formose Mendy was handed his debut at stadium:mk, replacing Adam Hammill. Harry Bunn gets given his first start of the season, replacing the injured James Maddison.

    Neither team could create much in the first half, going into the break at 0-0.

    Just 5 minutes after half time, Huddersfield opened the scoring.
    Ward found space on the right of the box, and fired the ball past the keeper and in.
    Not the debut Mendy had dreamed of, as he was shown a second yellow card after the hour. Two very harsh bookings, with very little contact or malice in either challenges.
    Bodin could've sealed the game near the end, but Martin's diving save kept the game to one.

    A very good performance after going down to 10 men. We did lack that clinical finishing of Vaughan and Maddison, but thanks to our good defencive work, we only needed one goal.

    Definitely need to give a mention to Wes Foderingham, pulling off 7 saves to win us the game.

    James Vaughan returns from injury, looking to secure his place in the side ahead of James Maddison.

    Ipswich had a chance after just 5 minutes, but the strike from the edge of the area struck the foot of the post, before being cleared away.
    Adam Hammill had a great effort a few minutes later, but his curling shot from outside the area just missed the far post.
    Neither team could open the scoring in the first half.

    With just 10 minutes left, after a good spell of pressure, Huddersfield got the first goal of the game.
    James Vaughan was given too much space in the box, and lashed his shot into the far corner of the net.
    Nahki Wells finished the game off soon after, volleying home a Forrester cross from close range.

    Another great performance, continuing our perfect start to the season.
    Also, another great game for Foderingham, making 5 saves to get his 3rd clean sheet in 3 league games.

    Unfortunately, Adam Hammill suffered a sprained ankle in the second half, and will miss the next 3 weeks.

    Despite some early pressure by Huddersfield, it was the home side who opened the scoring.
    Chalobah got away from his man, and volleyed home a low cross.
    The visitors had the better of the ball in the first half, but it's Burnley that go into the break a goal to the good.

    Huddersfield were denied a clear penalty just after the hour mark, when James Maddison was taken out by Kwak Tae Hwi's poorly timed slide tackle. The defender clearly took the striker's legs away from under him, and was well away from the ball, so the whole ground seemed bemused when the referee pointed for a goal kick.
    But James Vaughan made amends just minutes later.
    Forrester played the ball into the striker in the box, and he smashed the ball into the corner of the net.
    Five minutes later, and Huddersfield took the lead.
    Onomah played the ball behind the Burnley defence for Vaughan to run on to, and the striker made no mistake in curling the ball around the keeper and in.

    What a performance! Brilliant from every player!

    With Wales' internationals Billy Bodin and Joel Lynch away representing their country, Liam McGuire had to alter his starting line up at Craven Cottage.

    A very poor first half created no real chances for either team.

    Fulham took the lead in the second half.
    Despite being in an offside position, McCormack volleyed the ball home, and the goal was allowed to stand.
    Huddersfield created loads of chances at the end, but couldn't find the target.

    Liam McGuire hands Lee Peltier his first start of the season, with Bodin and Lynch returning from international duty.

    With half an hour gone, Harry Forrester won a free kick 40 yards out.
    Maddison rolled the ball to Bodin, who took a touch, and smashed the ball right into the top corner.
    Contender for goal of the season!

    Billy Bodin went off limping in injury time, and he'll miss 4 weeks with a sprained ankle.
    Bournemouth pushed hard, but couldn't find a goal.
