Huddersfield suffer first defeat

Nahki Wells came on as a second-half substitute as Huddersfield Town suffered their first defeat of the season away to Brighton and Hove Albion in the Sky Bet Championship yesterday.

Huddersfield's unbeaten run of six games — their best start to a Championship season — came to an end when goalkeeper Danny Ward's error allowed Anthony Knockaert's 80th-minute shot to roll past him. Wells came on for Harry Bunn in the 67th minute.

The loss reduces Huddersfield's lead at the top to just a point over Newcastle United, who hammered Queens Park Rangers 6-0 away from home, and Barnsley who won 4-0 away to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Huddersfield are at home to fourteenth-place QPR on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Reggie Lambe believes Carlisle United are shaping up to hand out a thrashing once they start converting their chances into goals.

Carlisle have struggled to turn draws into wins this season and had to share the spoils at home to Leyton Orient at the weekend to leave them ninth in League Two.

Lambe came on as a second-half substitute in that game but was unable to add to the three goals he has scored this season.

“Everyone feels it in the dressing room — there's going to be one day where we score four or five on a team and totally walk away with the game,” Lambe told the News & Star.

“But we're coming together as a team and as long as we're creating chances that's the good thing. We're still unbeaten and although we'd also like to have a few more clean sheets, that's something we're going to work on together as a team and push on for the weeks to come.”

The 25-year-old signed a one-year deal Carlisle after joining from league rivals Mansfield Town in the summer.

Lambe, who had several clubs competing for his signature, made 73 appearances and scored ten goals for Mansfield during his two seasons at the club.

“Personally, I feel good about my game and performances, coming to a new team, fitting in and having the confidence from the manager to be able to play me every game,” he said.

“I just want to do my best and give back to the manager [Keith Curle].”

Carlisle are away to fifteenth-place Blackpool on Saturday.

Goals galore: Lambe believes there is plenty more to come from Carlisle
