Nahki Wells' second-half goal earned Huddersfield Town a first win in six Championship games.

Town took a 10th-minute lead when Elias Kachunga headed in his seventh goal of the season, but Bristol levelled on 33 minutes, with the home side claiming offside as Tammy Abraham finished from Aaron Wilbraham's pass.

There was more controversy early in the second half as Bristol City keeper Frank Fielding handled outside the area as Wells gave chase, but escaped with only a yellow card, much to the frustration of Town and their fans.

But it was a case of poetic justice as Fielding's 59th-minute slip allowed Wells a simple finish for his fourth goal of the season.
