Huddersfield Town secured a first away win since October and a first success at Wigan Athletic since 1991 thanks to Conor Coady's late stunner in a 1-0 triumph.

In an evenly-contested game, Coady broke the deadlock with just nine minutes remaining with a curling effort from the left flank to send the 1,890-travelling Terriers fans into ecstasy.

Wigan pushed late on but Town were good value for their win after a resilient defensive display and some slick counter-attacking football.

In pictures: Wigan Athletic 0-1 Huddersfield Town

 

Smithies - Dealt well with any shots that did come his way, but Wigan's shooting was largely wayward and he was able to repel most crosses into his area. 6.

Smith - The dangerous McClean often threatened to get the better of him but he defended well throughout as he chose to limit his forward forays to help his backline. 6.

Hudson - The Town captain excelled and really relished the battles up against McClean and Martyn Waghorn. Led by example too in helping his side fend of some late pressure superbly. 7.

Lynch - A shaky start threatened to expose Town down the left-hand side but he recovered admirably to put in another masterful defensive performance in which he seemingly won every header, tackle and other challenges he competed in. 7.

Scannell - Looks back to his best after a tenacious performance in which he targeted left-back Andrew Taylor and should have got his just rewards of an assist, but for some good Wigan defending and poor finishing from Wells. 7.

Butterfield - Not his greatest game but he still worked hard for the Town cause. Unable to get his normal passing game going from early on and it was his off-the-ball work which drew the biggest credit. 6.

Edgar - An excellent debut for the new loan signing, who cut out so much of the Latics' forward threat stationed in front of the back four and made one crucial intervention to deny substitute Marc-Antoine Fortune. 8.

Coady - Typically purposeful but he seemed to be frustrated for much of the game as he failed to break the lines consistently with his passing or running, until he popped up with his stunning winner. 7.

Robinson - A brilliant showing from Town's bona fide No.1 choice at left-back, who did well to cope against the speed and trickery of McManaman and even embarked on some attacking raids in the second half. 7.

Wells - Was naturally relentless in his running and it caused all sorts of problems for the Latics back four but he was wasteful with his finishing and general final-third play until he teed up Coady for the winner. 7.

Vaughan - A surprise starter and he was understandably a little cautious in his playing style as he was passed fit to play with his facial injury but showed some good touches in his hold-up play. 6.

Substitutes:

Wallace - Came on to boost Town's defensive unit and he helped contribute to a precious clean sheet. 6.

Bunn - A fresh pair of legs late on and his running pushed Town higher up the pitch in the face of a late Wigan barrage. 6.
