Huddersfield Town ended Swansea City’s unbeaten start to the championship season as the Terriers’ first goal from Josh Koroma gave them a 2-1 victory at Liberty Stadium

Carlos Corberan’s side lost their first two games of the campaign without scoring a goal, but caused problems for a Swansea defense starting life without Joe Rodon

Swansea were the better team in the first half, but were left behind when Harry Tofolo hit a well-worked corner

Andre Ayew equalized from the penalty spot after Korey Smith fouled, but Huddersfield clinched a winner in a more even second half that had chances on both ends

Koroma, 21, guided the ball home from the edge of the penalty area to give Huddersfield a first away win of the campaign and seven points in their last three games

Swansea, for whom it was their first loss in eight regular-season outings dating back to July 11, will feel they should have had something

They had controlled the early stages, Marc Guehi forcing Ben Hamer to stop early before the Huddersfield keeper made a nice head-to-head save to deny Jamal Lowe

A short-turn routine called off Swansea, with Juninho Bacuna exchanging passes with Carel Eiting before firing a low shot into the penalty area which was hit at the net by Toffolo

After conceding in the league for just the second time this season, Swansea has found a quick response

But Swansea got a penalty kick after Smith beat Hamer on Ayew’s cross and was fired by the Huddersfield keeper

Ayew missed his last kick, in the play-off semi-final against Brentford in July, but he put this one away in a typically cool fashion, heading for the ball before sending Hamer into the wrong. meaning

Huddersfield carved out a half-chance just before the break as Koroma headed straight for Woodman, and they had a flurry of opportunities early in the second half

Isaac Mbenza sent a wide shot before a second effort beat Woodman, but came back from the far post

Then Toffolo wasted a golden chance to get his second of the afternoon as he shot away from target at close range

Then it was Swansea’s turn to waste it, with Ayew leading Matt Grimes’ free kick with the goal at his mercy

Next Lowe, after spotting Koroma’s ample pass, saw a parried shot before sending the rebound off the bar

It was the visitors who finally found an finish, with Koroma pulling low in the lower corner after Swansea failed to clear

The hosts threw the men forward in search of a second equalizer, but Jake Bidwell missed his best chance in the downtime
