Ross Wallace's long-range sizzler and Fernando Forestieri's stoppage-time strike condemned Huddersfield Town to a first defeat in eight SkyBet Championship matches.

And to make matters worse, the visitors had forward Jack Payne red carded after 70 minutes - leaving Town with an uphill task in front of 28,173 at Hillsborough.

Wallace had struck after 54, providing one of the few moments of real quality while Forestieri, so often a thorn in Town's side over the years, netted from close range.

The first half was a low-key affair, with Town having the best chances early on, when Nahki Wells' header was saved, and just before the break, when keeper Keiren Westwood tipped away Chris Lowe's angled free-kick.
