Huddersfield Town snatched a point from the jaws of defeat as defender Magnus Okuonghae scored a comical own goal as the clock was running out on The Terriers.

A draw was probably a fair result overall, and with Town having trailed for much of the game following Smithies early error that allowed Steven Gillespie to score an easy opener, it is definitely a point gained rather than two lost
