Billy Sharp's first-half strike is enough for Reading to beat Huddersfield Town 1-0.
Reading have beaten Huddersfield Town 1-0 at the John Smith's Stadium in the Championship.
Billy Sharp headed home Pavel Pogrebnyak's cross just after the half-hour mark to
give the Royals the points.
Huddersfield hammered on the door in the second half and the visitors had Alex McCarthy to thank for a string of saves to deny the home side.
Joel Lynch was sent off for a second bookable offence late on when he committed a poorly timed challenge on Pogrebnyak.
Result: Early Sharp effort clinches Reading win >
