Jon Stead
Jon Stead went closest for Huddersfield

Huddersfield picked up their first point under new manager Chris Powell as the Championship side were held to a goalless draw by Wigan.

The Terriers, who also kept their first clean sheet of the season, went closest when striker Jon Stead saw his late effort saved by Scott Carson.

For Wigan, Andy Delort drew a fine save from goalkeeper Alex Smithies in a game of few chances.

The point was Wigan's first away from home this season.

Uwe Rosler's side are 16th in the Championship with eight points from seven games.

Huddersfield, who have not won in the league since beating Reading 2-0 on 19 August, are 22nd with five points.

Huddersfield manager Chris Powell:

"Considering the way it ended on Saturday, we had a few knocks against Middlesbrough. So the 18 I had tonight were the most senior players available really.

"Obviously pleased with the clean sheet because we haven't had one. I'm pleased for Alex Smithies, because you need those - it definitely gets you a point."

Wigan manager Uwe Rosler:

"Overall we didn't get what we deserved from the game.

"We had 15 attempts, 60% possession but we're standing here with only one point.

"I was happy with how we shifted the ball and controlled the game in comparison to the Blackburn game, but I'm not happy that we only got a point from the game because we should have won."
