Huddersfield Town were beaten 4-1 by an in-form Fulham side today, with the Terriers having to wait to secure their spot in this season's Championship play-offs.
Chris Lowe put the hosts in front from the penalty spot just four minutes into the match, but first half goals from Scott Malone and Tom Cairney put the Cottagers in control and a Stefan Johansen brace secured all three points before the interval.
Despite the loss, Leeds United and Reading also failed to record a point today, with one win in their last three now enough for Town to cement a spot in the play-offs.
