Huddersfield Town suffered a second defeat in five days as Fulham scored twice in seven minutes late on at Craven Cottage.

Joel Lynch had Town's 2,700-strong travelling contingent singing in the West London rain when he headed home in the 76th minute to cancel out Hugo Rodallega's first-half opener.

But Lasse Vigen Christensen steered Fulham back in front within 60 seconds, then Ross McCormack lashed home a shot to seal the win.

Town boss Chris Powell made two changes in the bid to bounce back from Tuesday's defeat at Derby.

Paul Dixon replaced Jack Robinson at left-back while nine-goal top scorer Nahki Wells was sacrificed for an additional midfielder in Jonathan Hogg.

Powell named Diego Poyet, his new midfield loan signing from West Ham, on the bench.

 

Town made a decent start, and skipper Mark Hudson had a header cleared off the line before Harry Bunn went through one-on-one with keeper Marcus Bettinelli only to slide his shot wide.

Town were behind in the 19th minute when Rodallega finished neatly after good work by McCormack, and George Williams shot into the side-netting before crossing for Rodallega to head over just before the break.

Town had a string of second-half efforts, with Jacob Butterfield firing a free-kick into the side-netting before Hogg volleyed wide.

Harry Bunn had a shot cleared and Grant Holt volleyed over.

Meanwhile, Alex Smithies made a great save to thwart Rodallega.

The equaliser finally came when Lynch headed home from a free-kick, but Fulham were back in front within 60 seconds, Christensen beating Hudson and finishing coolly.

Then ex-Leeds man McCormack smashed a powerful shot into the top left-hand corner.
