Huddersfield players celebrate after Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s own-goal/

Fulham on Monday night replaced Huddersfield at the bottom of the Premier League table after a Timothy Fosu-Mensah own goal gave the Terriers a 1-0 home win over the West Londoners.

Huddersfield’s first home goal since April 14 was enough to give them their first win since the same day, and came from a stroke of good fortune when Fosu-Mensah diverted Christopher Schindler’s header from a Chris Lowe cross beyond Sergio Rico.

Fulham managed only a solitary shot on target throughout the whole 90 minutes at the John Smith’s Stadium to further crank up the pressure on manager Slavisa Jokanovic, whose £100m summer spending has returned only five points from 11 games.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, celebrated David Wagner’s third anniversary in charge by moving above Fulham in the table with victory, and remain inside the relegation zone only on goal difference behind 17th-placed Newcastle.
