FT: Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

I'm afraid that's all we've got time for this afternoon.

It was certainly a strange West Yorkshire derby...absolutely nothing for 45 minutes and then one of the most exciting, intense games you are likely to see.

You can read more in Steve Marshall's match report here.

Thanks for joining us. Goodbye.

FT: Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Leeds United boss Steve Evans tells Sky Sports:

"I think it was disappointing for 40 minutes and the two goals didn't change what we said to them at half-time.

"We said that when you play for this football club it means the world to teams to beat you and I thought Huddersfield would be like that with a new manager.

"We rode our luck a bit early doors but with the first bit of quality we get a goal and the second bit of quality we get our second goal."

Derby joy for Leeds

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

BBC Radio Leeds' Leeds United commentator Adam Pope captures the scene at the final whistle.

FT: Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Leeds are now up to 14th in the Championship after recording back-to-back wins for the first time since March.

Huddersfield remain in 19th, five points clear of the relegation zone. 

But we're about 20 minutes away from our 15:00 GMT kick-offs so plenty could change over the next couple of hours.

FULL-TIME

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Well it was all pretty convincing in the end for Leeds.

A desperately poor first half burst into life in stoppage time when Mirco Antenucci pounced on the end of Stuart Dallas' pinpoint cross before Chris Wood fired into an empty net to double the advantage at the break.

Alex Mowatt made it 3-0 with a stunning 30-yard half-volley into the top corner.

Huddersfield dominated the second half but struggled to create many clear cut chances.

The new boss, David Wagner, takes the hot seat on Monday. Plenty for him to think about.

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

It's just not going to happen for Huddersfield. Kyle Dempsey is sent clear but he tries to cross the ball when he should have shot.

Frustrating for the hosts.

This victory will move Leeds to within six points of the play-off places...for the next couple of hours or so at least.

Steve Evans has won seven promotions in his managerial career...too early to be saying such things?

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Leeds are just playing possession football now. That's all they need to do. 

There will be four minutes of stoppage time.

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

If the scoreline stays the same, this will be Leeds' biggest win at Huddersfield since 1938.

It will also be the first time Leeds have earned back-to-back wins since March.

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Jordan Botaka almost makes an immediate impact after coming on.

The forward performs a couple of cheeky stepovers before unleashing a fierce right-footed shot which Joe Murphy does well to tip over the bar.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Leeds make their final substitution.

Jordan Botaka comes on for Stuart Dallas who set up their first goal with that fantastic cross.

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Huddersfield appear to have run out of steam now. They know this game is beyond them. 

But we've seen stranger things in football! Just over 10 minutes left.

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Leeds have kept just one clean sheet in their last 13 games - and that was against Cardiff on Tuesday. It's looking like they will make it two in 14 matches.

Huddersfield have had 13 shots in this second half, but crucially they haven't made any of them count.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Scott Wootton is replaced by Tom Adeyami for Leeds just moments after Dean Whitehead flashes a shot over the bar for Huddersfield.

Huddersfield also make a change as Duane Holmes comes on for Joe Lolley.

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Marco Silvestri pulls off another marvellous save to keep Huddersfield at bay.

Harry Bunn fires a powerful right-footed shot towards goal from a tight angle, but Silvestri dives at full stretch and tips the ball away.

You feel that had to go in though as time is quickly running out for the hosts.

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

This game is now end to end. Leeds have a couple of corners which come to nothing before Emyr Huws finds space in the box at the other end but can't get his shot away.

He needed to be a bit quicker with his decision making.

James Vaughan then fires a shot over the bar for the Terriers. That dull first 45 minutes has quickly been forgotten about, this is now enthralling viewing.

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

What a magnificent save from Leeds goalkeeper Marco Silvestri. James Vaughan hits a powerful shot on the turn and Silvestri pulls off a fine one-handed stop low to his right.

That's Huddersfield's best chance of the match.

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Huddersfield will be completely deflated by that goal as they were on top in this second half.

But there was nothing they could do about that from Alex Mowatt, it was the sweetest of strikes. It was arguably better than his stunning winner against Cardiff on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, James Vaughan comes on for Murray Wallace for Huddersfield. They need a goal from somewhere and quickly.

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

That is an absolute screamer from Alex Mowatt. Leeds United are almost out of sight in the West Yorkshire derby. Town need to shut the back door quick because otherwise this is going to get painful.

GOAL (Mowatt)

Huddersfield 0-3 Leeds

Leeds celebrate
Rex Features

WOW! Alex Mowatt has done it again!

Mowatt picks up the ball 30 yards from goal and thumps an unstoppable half-volley into the top right corner.

It was one of the best strikes you will ever see and this game is as good as over.

Huddersfield 0-2 Leeds

This is so much better from Huddersfield. Joe Lolley has been a livewire throughout this match and he once again races down the right but his attempted cross is deflected for a corner.

Nothing comes from the set piece, but the home fans will be buoyed by their side's start after the break.

Huddersfield 0-2 Leeds

Huddersfield have created more in the first four minutes of the second half than the whole of the first half.

Harry Bunn weaves his way into the box, but can't get enough power behind his effort and it's saved easily by Marco Silvestri. 

Just before Joe Lolley went down in the area, but the referee waved away his penalty claims. 

Huddersfield 0-2 Leeds

Two chances in the space of two minutes for Nahki Wells.

The Huddersfield striker just can't get on the end of Joe Lolley's pinged cross before he races clear but Sol Bamba pulls off a fine sliding tackle.

Much brighter start from the hosts.

KICK-OFF

Huddersfield 0-2 Leeds

Huddersfield get us under way for the second half. Big, big half needed from the Terriers.

HT: Huddersfield 0-2 Leeds

So what will Mark Lillis be saying to his Huddersfield players in the dressing room?

He needs to find something inspirational because that was a real sucker punch from Leeds just before half-time.

The Terriers registered just one shot on target in the first half and will certainly need to show plenty more attacking flair.

HALF-TIME

Huddersfield 0-2 Leeds

After 10 minutes of injury time, the half-time whistle finally blows. 

But what a 10 minutes it was for Leeds United.

It's fair to say absolutely nothing happened for the first 45 minutes, but then everything burst into life.

Mirco Antenucci put Leeds ahead with a predatory finish from six yards out, before Chris Wood netted his sixth goal of the season in the seventh minute of stoppage time.

Huddersfield will be shell-shocked.

Huddersfield 0-2 Leeds

It's a double sucker punch in first-half injury time. Town have got to come out roaring in the second half to get something out of this West Yorkshire derby.

Paul OgdenBBC Radio Leeds' Huddersfield Town commentator

GOAL (Wood)

Huddersfield 0-2 Leeds

Chris Wood scores
Rex Features

And now it's 2-0! Unbelievable.

Mirco Antenucci breaks clear and takes the ball round Huddersfield goalkeeper Joe Murphy.

He gets a shot away which is blocked, but the ball comes back to Chris Wood in the centre of the area and the striker is left with the simplest of finishes into an open net.

Where did that come from?!

GOAL (Antenucci)

Huddersfield 0-1 Leeds

Mirco Antenucci
Rex Features

Finally we have a bit of quality and it's led to the first goal of the game!

Stuart Dallas puts in a fantastic cross from the right and Mirco Antenucci is perfectly placed to fire home.

Antenucci is then booked for taking his shirt off in the celebrations. Why do players do that?

Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds

There will be eight minutes of injury time after Liam Cooper's nasty head injury.

Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds

That pretty much sums up this first half. The ball breaks to Leeds' Alex Mowatt in the box and he fires a shot away which goes out for a throw in.

Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds

At the moment you can see why this is 19th v 18th in the Championship. Both teams have flaws as well as talent on view.

Paul OgdenBBC Radio Leeds' Huddersfield Town commentator

Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds

There may be a distinct lack of quality and clear cut chances so far, but that isn't deterring the Huddersfield and Leeds supporters.

Both sets of fans are in fine voice at the John Smith's Stadium.

Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds

We've now got another nasty looking injury. Dean Whitehead is down for Huddersfield after a clash with Luke Murphy.

Thankfully Whitehead is back up on his feet shortly after.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds

Philip Billing is coming off for Huddersfield and appears to be limping. He's replaced by Emyr Huws. 

Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds

Just as I said that, we finally have our first shot on target. Huddersfield's Harry Bunn finds some room in the box and fires a low left foot strike towards goal but Marco Silverstri saves well.

Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds

It's been 15 games since these two sides have played out a goalless draw. 

But almost half an hour in and neither goalkeeper has been troubled.

The game needs a spark from somewhere. Desperately!

YELLOW CARD (Cranie)

Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds

That is as cynical as it gets from Martin Cranie and the Huddersfield defender rightly goes into the referee's notebook.

Mirco Antenucci breaks for Leeds on halfway but Cranie pulls him back and is immediately shown a yellow card.

Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds

Nahki Wells finds Kyle Dempsey on the right wing with a wonderful reverse pass, but the midfielder can't get the ball from under his feet as he makes his way into the box and his weak effort is blocked.

Still a lack of real quality in the game midway through this first half.

Huddersfield 0-0 Leeds

The Leeds corner is too long and is cleared by the Huddersfield defence.

It may take a while for the players to find their feet again after that lengthy delay.
