Huddersfield Town hold Wigan Athletic to a 1-1 draw at half time, courtesy of Oliver Norwood's late equaliser in the first half.
Oliver Norwood hit a 46th-minute equaliser this afternoon as Huddersfield Town hold Wigan Athletic to a 1-1 half-time draw.
The Latics enjoyed much of the possession throughout the opening stages without penetrating the Town defence.
They would soon find a breakthrough, though. Ben Watson's floating corner was found by the head of Leon Barnett, who rise highest to thump home the opening goal.
Huddersfield responded well to the deficit and nearly provided the perfect riposte, only for Adam Hammill to see his goal-bound effort deflected narrowly wide off Barnett.
The visitors came even closer from the resulting corner, with goalkeeper Lee Nicholls denying Mark Robins's men an equaliser by tipping Peter Clarke's header past the post.
Town soon saw their dominance rewarded, though, as Oliver Norwood equalised in the dying stages of the first half via a Ryan Shotton deflection.
