Horror start for Rams
Danny Ward scored after just 47 seconds as a toothless Derby fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of newly-promoted Huddersfield.
The former Bolton winger caught the Rams cold when he turned in Adam Hammill's cross and that proved to be enough to give the Terriers their second win of the season. After a terrible start, Derby played some attractive football but they lacked a cutting edge and were unable to rescue a point which would have been no more than they deserved. Huddersfield have lost just once since returning to the second tier and look very much at home at this level, with Simon Grayson having blended together a well organised side. Referee Trevor Kettle waved play on late in the game when Jeff Hendrick went down in the area after a strong challenge in the air and the Terriers held on for all three points. Huddersfield now climb to eighth in the npower Championship, while Derby find themselves in 19th.
