Charlton 2 Huddersfield 1

The first chilly day of the season, and a cracking game. Huddersfield were a delight to watch - totally committed to going forward, even before they went behind (to a headed goal by Sam Sodje from a really badly defended corner) after 7 minutes. It looked like it might be a high-scoring game, but although that didn't really happen, it could have. Huddersfield were always keen to try a speculative shot, and both sides had chances. They equalised (with a brilliantly taken freekick) shortly before half-time, and the second half saw Semedo on to strengthen midfield. Almost instant result, with Macleod scoring within five minutes. After that it was a flowing, open game, certainly the best this season.

Despite the referee. He was really hopeless. Huddersfield's goal - although they deserved it - came from a completely invisible foul, while other fouls were completely missed.

No home league game now for a month.
