Huddersfield beaten by Sheffield Wednesday

Fernando Forestieri scores a penalty

Fernando Forestieri has now scored on his last four visits to Huddersfield

Huddersfield Town missed the chance to go back to the top of the Championship after losing to Sheffield Wednesday in the Yorkshire derby.

Fernando Forestieri scored the only goal from the spot after Rajiv van La Parra handled Tom Lees’ shot.

Huddersfield, who would have gone top with a win, went close to an equaliser when Elias Kachunga’s effort was cleared off the line by Daniel Pudil.

Forestieri and David Jones had earlier both hit the woodwork for the Owls.
