Huddersfield Town 4-1 Bolton Wanderers

Emyr Huws
Emyr Huws has scored three goals in four days to help Huddersfield Town to successive wins

Emyr Huws scored twice and created a third as Huddersfield overcame a Bolton side that finished with 10 men.

Liam Feeney burst into the box inside three minutes to drill home Bolton's first goal away from home this season.

Bolton's Prince-Desir Gouano sliced a clearance onto his own bar before Huws levelled with a 25-yard shot.

Huws found Mustapha Carayol to put the Terriers ahead then added a second of his own before Joel Lynch made it 4-1 and Derik Osede was sent off.

Former Real Madrid defender Derik picked up his second caution late on after bringing down Nahki Wells.

Bolton finally strike on the road
Bolton were the last remaining Championship team this season to score an away goal.

Victory puts the Terriers 13th in the table but Bolton are just one place off the relegation spots.

Feeney, whose first goal in almost eight months helped the Trotters to their first victory of the campaign last week, put Bolton ahead when he latched on to a lofted Dean Moxey ball and skipped behind defender Jason Davidson before finding the bottom corner - but that was as good as it got for Bolton.

First Emile Heskey limped off injured, then Prince miscued a clearance against the woodwork.

Huddersfield's Elliott Ward then hooked Wellington Silva's header off the line, while at the other end keeper Ben Amos almost gifted the hosts an equaliser after a back-pass slipped through his legs, before Huws found the net in first-half injury time.

He wasted a good chance for 2-1 after good work from Carayol, who minutes later turned scorer himself, with a fine curling shot.

Carayol set up Huws' second, turning the ball in at the back post, before Lynch dispossessed Lawrie Wilson to make it 4-1, with Derik's dismissal rounding off Bolton's miserable day.

Huddersfield Town manager Chris Powell:

"We scored four but it probably could, and should, have been more.

"In the Championship you rarely have a 90-minute total performance but we got close to that with 85 minutes.

"If the players get anywhere near their potential they can be a real force."

Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon:

"I felt we were a bit leg weary and there was a lack of physicality and we can't rely on the defence to keep teams out.

"We were far too passive in the second half and gave away sloppy goals.

"We have created decent chances but we are not converting them. That's a concern and if we don't find that bit of quality in the squad it's going to be a long, hard season."
