Comments:

League position: 4th Although a number of sources credited Huddersfield Town's first goal to Kasey Palmer, the match report on the club's official web site confirmed that it was an own goal by Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic: "A corner was the source of the 53rd minute equaliser. Holmes-Dennis made his way to the left and pulled a low ball to the edge of the penalty area for Mooy’s late run. The Aussie uncharacteristically miscued his shot, but the ball ended up on the head of Kasey Palmer. He hit the bar, but as Stojkovic dived the ball ricocheted off his back and into the net."
