:Headline: Result: Garry Monk starts Sheffield Wednesday reign with a win at Huddersfield:
Monk's Owls reign started with a 2-0 win at Huddersfield.

Garry Monk won the battle of the new two new Yorkshire managers as Sheffield Wednesday beat Huddersfield 2-0 in a hard-fought derby clash at the John Smith's Stadium.

Steven Fletcher's 10th-minute header and a rare goal from substitute Sam Winnall proved the difference between the two sides as Monk celebrated his first game in charge in style.

But it was disappointment for new Terriers manager Danny Cowley who, along with his brother and assistant Nicky, suffered defeat in their first outing at the Huddersfield helm.

Both sides created good chances, but it was Fletcher who gave the Owls the lead with his fourth goal in six games.

The 32-year-old striker timed his run to perfection to head Kadeem Harris' cross past the helpless Terriers goalkeeper Kamil Grabara.

And striker Winnall came off the bench to score his first goal since December 2017, which came during a loan spell at Derby. It was his first Owls goal since August 2017.

Owls striker Adam Reach shot straight at Grabara in the fifth minute as the visitors started brightly, before Chelsea loanee Trevoh Chalobah forced a smart stop from keeper Keiren Westwood at the other end.

But it was Scotland international Fletcher who gave the visitors the start they craved.

Winger Harris whipped in an inch-perfect cross from the left and Fletcher rose to head home.

Terence Kongolo combined well with Fraizer Campbell, but the defender volleyed over at full stretch as the Terriers nearly caught the Owls on the counter.

Kongolo let rip with a stinging drive 10 minutes before the break but Westwood palmed the ball away.

A loose ball fell fortuitously to Jacob Murphy on the edge of Huddersfield box on the stroke of half-time, but the on-loan Newcastle midfielder blazed high and wide.

Former Manchester United forward Campbell latched on to a cross from Adama Diakhaby, but his goalbound effort lacked any sting.

Town boss Cowley made a double substitution 10 minutes after the restart to try and impact the match with Isaac Mbenza and Juninho Bacuna introduced.

And it was replacement Bacuna's brilliant work and cross from the byline which set up Kongolo to force a smart one-handed block from Westwood at his near post.

The Owls kept pushing, though, and Reach went close with a left-foot shot which just whistled past the right upright and also rifled a left-foot shot straight at Grabara.

Winnall then settled the game with 18 minutes remaining as he glanced in a header from skipper Barry Bannan's delightful cross.

Reach had a shot deflected wide as the Owls nearly grabbed a third, but they had already done enough to earn their first points in three league outings.
