Ipswich Town hold a 1-0 lead over Huddersfield Town at the break of their Championship clash at Portman Road thanks to a rare goal from Tommy Smith.

A strike from Tommy Smith in the 21st minute has handed Ipswich Town a 1-0 lead at the break of their Championship clash against Huddersfield Town.

The Terriers should have taken the lead in the 12th minute when Jacob Butterfield released the run of Grant Holt through the middle, but the striker lost his composure and poked the ball past the post.

Ipswich made the visitors pay for the missed opportunity as they went ahead through Smith, who powered a header from Teddy Bishop's cross past Alex Smithies.

Nakhi Wells should have equalised for Chris Powell's side when he beat the offside trap and ran through on goal.

The striker saw his initial effort saved by Dean Gerken, and then somehow fired the rebound over the bar from close range.
