Owls boosted as Terriers end run

Have your say

SHEFFIELD Wednesday players and supporters had a relaxing night watching their two closest rivals battling it out yesterday evening and after a 2-0 victory for Charlton over Huddersfield the Owls remain in second place in League One.

The defeat for Huddersfield is their first in 44 league matches and ends the longest unbeaten run ever in the Football League.

Both teams showed at times why they are two of best in the third tier of English football but it was the Addicks who preserved their unbeaten home record with two first half goals.

Yann Kermorgant opened the scoring in the 23rd minutes as he glanced in from a Danny Green free kick.

And just before half time debutant Hogan Ephraim drilled the ball home after Bradley Wright-Phillips had been denied by Ian Bennett.
