Florent Haderdjonaj 7: Replaced Tommy Smith at right-back, for his Premier League debut. Impressed and looks a really good player.

Mathias Zanka 7: Solid game, up against the experienced Jay Rodriguez and Hal Robson-Kanu.

Christopher Schindler 7: Unlucky to be booked for a clash with Hal Robson-Kanu. Seemed a 50-50 moment. Excellent recovering tackle, to deny Jay Rodriguez when clear on goal in first half. Sent off for second yellow card.

Scott Malone 7: Left-back had a great battle with Baggies right-back Allan Nyon all afternoon. Deserved standing ovation when replaced late on.

Jonathan Hogg 6: The rock in Huddersfield's midfield, which allowed others to push forward.

Elias Kachunga 5: Had a quite first half. Replaced in second half by Martin Cranie.

Aaron Mooy 7: Quick-thinking saw free-kick taken early, which resulted in goal for Town just before half-time. His experience key when Town had to play with 10 men.

Rajiv Van La Parra 7: Had a penalty call rejected in first half after clash with Kieran Gibbs. Netted a stunning goal from 30 yards. Subbed for Danny Williams.

Tom Ince 6: Had Town's best chance in opening 45 minutes, but blasted over under pressure from Baggies defenders.

Laurent Depoitre 6: The big striker battled away all afternoon as Town's lone forward. Won his share of headers, and was a focal point up front.
