Nahki Wells rescued a point for Huddersfield Town - but they should have had all three.

The forward levelled with a stoppage-time free-kick from just outside the penalty area following a foul on substitute Jack Payne .

Blackburn Rovers had gone in front through Danny Graham's 81st-minute header - their first real attack of the game.

Town dominated throughout but were unable to make their possession count - Rovers keeper Jason Steele made first-half saves from Rajiv van La Parra , Kasey Palmer and Wells.

Then he denied Jack Payne late on before he was unable to keep out Wells' set-piece as the Bermudian struck in the third minute of time added on.

The game drew a recorded gate of 21,311, including 1,072 visiting fans.
