Huddersfield edge up Championship table with stoppage-time equaliser
Huddersfield Town edged up to fourth spot in England's Championship on Saturday, rescuing a point in a 1-1 draw at home to Blackburn Rovers with a stoppage-time equaliser from striker Nakhi Wells.
Rovers were denied victory by a Wells free kick in the 94th minute, having gone ahead in the 81st when Danny Graham headed in his seventh goal in his last eight games.
The draw left Blackburn in the relegation zone ahead of their Monday meeting with table-topping Newcastle United. None of the leading three teams in the second tier were playing on Saturday.

Lukas Jutkiewicz levelled the scores for City from the penalty spot in the 52nd minute after Marc Roberts was sent off for bringing down Che Adams.
