Championship: Cardiff 1 Huddersfield Town 0

18 August 2012 00:03

Cardiff captain Mark Hudson struck an injury-time winner to open the Championship season with a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town.

It was a tough result on promoted Huddersfield, who deserved a point after holding out the home side at Cardiff City Stadium for all but 91 minutes of the clash.

Despite the return of hometown hero Craig Bellamy after his switch from Liverpool over the summer, it was Huddersfield who created the better of the chances at goal, most notably by Oliver Norwood and Scott Arfield, but they were ultimately denied by the smart work of Cardiff keeper David Marshall.

After a goalless first half, it was left to Hudson to claim all three points for Cardiff late as they seek a return to the Premier League next season.

Kevin McNaughton provided a long ball forward that was headed down by substitute Joe Mason, with defender Hudson on hand to slide in the winner - his first goal since his cracker against Derby last season.
