Huddersfield Town suffered last-minute heartache in the West Yorkshire derby as Billy Sharp headed home a dramatic 90th-minute winner.

The Terriers fell behind after just seven minutes thanks to Sam Byram's lobbed effort, but responded just 20 minutes later as Bunn capitalised on slack defending, and goalkeeping from Marco Silvestri, to nod home at the far post from a Jacob Butterfield corner.

Both sides had chances to win it, with Town's best openings falling to Sean Scannell just before half-time as he drilled wide and a Butterfield cross-shot which zipped across the face of goal before Sharp had the last laugh by meeting Mirco Antenucci's right-wing centre.

Town team (3-5-2): Murphy; Smith (Lolley, 99), Hudson, Lynch (Wallace, 88); Scannell, Butterfield, Edgar, Coady, Robinson; Vaughan, Wells (Bunn, 10). Not used: Allinson, Dixon, Gobern, Majewski.


Too much respect paid - Town simply failed to get going here and allowed Leeds United to dictate the flow of the game from deep in midfield as Luke Murphy showed when he was handed far too much room to lay on the opener for Sam Byram.

It was a theme which carred itself into the second period, but it wasn't until Sharp arrived in the game that the visitors found the cutting edge in attack.

Main man

Joel Lynch - It was difficult to pick any above the rest on a day when none deserved any praise, but Lynch at least showed the battling qualities so sorely lacking throughout Town otherwise.

He stood up to the pugnacious Rudy Austin and gave as good as he got defensively until he was forced off with injury.

Bigger picture

Bragging rights are well and truly Leeds' - This was the first occasion Neil Redfearn's side have completed the double over their neighbours, incredibly, since the 1938/1939 campaign and the celebrations in the away end at full-time showed just how much it meant.

Chris Powell and his side have come on leaps and bounds since that defeat at Elland Road but he was unable to stop the Whites once again ultimately, even if the scoreline was slightly different.
