An even start in Yorkshire saw both teams keep the ball well but then the Terriers were punished for overplaying.

Jonas Lossl took a goal kick and played it to Joe Lolley who had three West Ham players around him. Noble was the first to react and won the ball, drove forward and smashed home to make it 1-0 to West Ham.
