Cardiff City captain Mark Hudson struck in injury time to earn his side victory against Huddersfield Town.
It seemed neither team could force their way through in a game which Cardiff had the better of, with Craig Bellamy returning to action in a Bluebirds jersey.
But with the ball bouncing around in the Terriers' penalty area Hudson was in hand to lash it home from close range.
More to follow.
