Huddersfield’s winless start to the season continued as they were humbled by League One new boys Lincoln City in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

Town boss Jan Siewert made 11 changes and had seven debutants, and it showed as Danny Cowley’s side impressed with their third successive win of the new season.

Huddersfield were indebted to goalkeeper Ryan Schofield as he pulled off four fine saves to keep the score goalless at half-time.

Harry Anderson gave the Imps the lead when he side-footed in unmarked at the back post from Harry Toffolo’s cross.

It could have been worse for Huddersfield, relegated from the Premier League last season, as Reece Brown shot just wide from the edge of the box while Jack Payne managed to scuff a chance from two yards out after Tyler Walker’s shot fell to him in front of goal.

Huddersfield – without a win in all competitions since February – had two big penalty appeals turned down in the dying moments.

First substitute Steve Mounie collided with Toffolo before Rajiv van La Parra’s corner appeared to strike the arm of Michael O’Connor.
