|Wells 90||Venue: John Smith Stadium
MILLWALL suffered a heart-breaking defeat to Huddersfield in new manager Ian Holloway's first game in charge.
The Terriers broke their transfer record on Friday to sign Bradford City striker Nahki Wells and he stepped off the bench to score the winner in the final minute.
Holloway's Lions looked to have done enough to earn a point but Jack Smith's lapse was punished by Wells to send them home empty-handed.
At his media unveiling on Thursday, Holloway stated he would be making two changes to the side beaten 4-1 at Southend in the FA Cup last weekend.
In fact, his first starting XI showed just one alteration from the previous match, with Scott McDonald replacing the suspended Jermaine Easter up front.
There was, however, a change of formation from 4-4-2 to 4-3-3.
Both goalkeepers were largely untroubled during the opening 20 minutes, with midfielder Adam Clayton's deflected shot the only notable effort on goal.
Steve Morison pounced on Oliver Norwood's under-hit back pass in the 22nd minute but drilled tamely into the arms of Alex Smithies.
Forde made two stunning saves in the space of five minutes to deny Martin Paterson as Huddersfield began to build up a head of steam.
But the Lions came within inches of breaking the deadlock on the stroke of half time when Scott McDonald's low shot cannoned off the post via slight deflection.
In the 51st minute, winger Adam Hammill skipped past the challenge of Shane Lowry before drilling narrowly wide of the far corner.
Substitute Martyn Woolford fired a shot on the turn straight into Smithies' midriff before fellow sub Andy Keogh arrowed a half-volley narrowly wide with his first touch.
Holloway made his final change with 15 minutes to go, bringing on Liam Trotter for Jimmy Abdou, and the midfielder's first act was to fire into the side netting from Richard Chaplow's pass.
It looked as if both sides had canceled each other out but a long ball forward was flicked towards his own goal by Smith, and Wells stabbed in to win it.
