The Myanmar Times - - Sport -

HUD­DER­S­FIELD earned its first English Premier League win and moved off the bot­tom of the stand­ings af­ter beat­ing Ful­ham 1-0 on Mon­day.

Ti­mothy Fosu-Men­sah com­mit­ted an own goal in the first half, un­der pres­sure from Hud­der­s­field’s Christo­pher Schindler’s header. Hud­der­s­field hadn’t scored at home in eight games, or 659 min­utes.

The Ter­ri­ers’ win­less run in the league dated to April — 14 games in to­tal — but man­ager David Wag­ner was able to cel­e­brate on the night of his third an­niver­sary in charge.

Ful­ham suf­fered a fifth con­sec­u­tive loss, an eighth straight match with­out a win, and dropped to sec­ond to last over­all, above only Cardiff.
