Lee Nicholls was the hero for Huddersfield in the shoot-out, saving spot-kicks from Massimo Luongo and Liam Palmer.

Huddersfield beat Sheffield Wednesday 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out to progress to the second round of the Carabao Cup after the game finished goalless in normal time.

The first chance of the game fell to Huddersfield's Scott High in the 12th minute when his shot from the edge of the area forced a fine save from Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

Lewis O'Brien had another chance for the visitors after dispossessing Dennis Adeniran, firing a low shot which was well saved by Peacock-Farrell to his left.

A 20-yard shot from Adeniran was comfortably saved by Lee Nicholls.

Huddersfield threatened again when Levi Colwill's header went just wide and a Danny Ward header was comfortably saved by Peacock-Farrell.

At the other end, a low shot from Callum Paterson was straight at Nicholls.

As the visitors continued to threaten, a chip from Duane Holmes went over the bar, Ward's deflected shot hit the side-netting and Peacock-Farrell saved an effort from Holmes.

When Sorba Thomas found himself through on goal, Barry Bannan raced back to make a vital challenge.

In stoppage time, Huddersfield substitute Jordan Rhodes' goal-bound header was cleared by Sam Hutchinson and the former Owls striker also headed wide.
