Philip Billing lashed in his first goal for Huddersfield Town to end a four-match losing streak and seal a first victory in six.

The 19-year-old Dane drilled in a sizzling 30-yard strike in the 84th minute to double the lead supplied by a first-half own goal from Nottingham Forest defender Matt Mills.

A first clean sheet in six games against a side who had gone unbeaten in 13 Championship matches and blanked their previous four opponents was an added plus.

First Half

Huddersfield Town made a bright start and took a 14th-minute lead with on own goal by Nottingham Forest defender Matt Mills.

The centre-back could only turn a Tommy Smith cross into the net after a neat passing move involving James Husband, Joe Lolley and Harry Bunn.

A foul by Mills on Husband then gave Town a free-kick 25 yards out, but Nahki Wells' effort was held by Dorus De Vries.

Forest finally found some rhythm and Nelson Oliveira came close with a dipping shot from the right-hand corner of the area.

Robert Tesche headed wide from a corner before Oliveira, the Portuguese striker on loan from Benfica, fired wide after good work by Ben Osborn.

Town came back into it towards the end of the first half, and Karim Matmour and Wells were denied by de Vries while Bunn had a shot blocked.

Second Half

With his side struggling to make any real inroads, home manager Dougie Freedman made a double change, with Oliver Burke and Jorge Grant coming on for Jamie Ward and Gary Gardner.

But it was Town who had the next chance, with the advancing Smith bringing another save from Dutch keeper de Vries with a low strike.

Forest came close through Oliveira, who drilled in a fierce shot which Town keeper Jed Steer scooped away for a corner.

Then the visitors survived a handball claim against Billing, with referee Darren Deadman waving play on despite vociferous penalty claims by the home fans.

The 1,193 Town fans behind the goal their side were attacking were in their feet as Billing advanced in the 76th minute, but his shot was well wide.

The busy Lolley was closer but still off target when cutting in from the right soon after, while Forest made their third change when Dexter Blackstock replaced Tesche.

But it was Town who got the key goal of the contest in the 84th minute when Billing unleashed a 30-yard beauty which flew in.
