Huddersfield’s Championship season continued with a defeat against Sheffield Wednesday at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.
An emphatic Yorkshire derby win over Leeds, heading into the international break, couldn’t be followed up with another as Wednesday went away with a one-nil win.
With the deadlock not broken, and a goalless draw on, Fernando Forestieri grabbed an 83rd-minute winner for Wednesday finishing off from a Lucas Joao cross to see Town dropped to 18th and still far to close to the bottom three for comfort.
Here’s a round up of the Championship action from the other games played at the weekend….
These were the other results.

Middlesbrough (three-two) were arguably the ‘biggest winners’ from the weekend with the win at QPR on Friday moving them up to second, which is a place they retained to close to within three-points of leaders Burnley (two-two) who drew with third placed Brighton.
Only four-points separate the three team though!
A Hull (four-nil) win at the KC Stadium over Bristol City got Steve Bruce’s side back to winning ways with a positive reaction shown now back following the international break, they’re only four-points off second so it’s all very tight for automatic promotion.
Looking at the other end, and the battle to stay in the second tier, with Bolton (one-nil) beaten by Reading I think we discount them now with it the final two places being battled for.
Charlton’s (two-one) win against Birmingham revived hopes but the Fulham (two-one) win against relegation rivals MK Dons means both sides remain in the relegation zone with the Cottagers having a three-point lead over MK Dons and a six-point one over Charlton, with a much better goal-difference than both, that being worth a extra point.
Rotherham’s (two-one) win at the New York Stadium against Leeds saw Neil Warnock, against a former club, move the Millers that little bit closer to safety.
Play-off wise Sheffield Wednesday (one-nil) winning at Huddersfield strengthened the Owls’ chances of that with Derby’s (two-one) defeat to Cardiff leaving it looking like it’ll be these two clubs fighting it out for the fourth and final place at the moment….
