    Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship match between Cardiff and Huddersfield

    Cardiff secured back-to-back Championship victories for the first time this season with a 3-0 home triumph over Huddersfield.

    Kieffer Moore took his goalscoring tally to nine for club and country this term with a crucial brace either side of half-time before substitute Robert Glatzel completed the win.

    The Wales striker produced a composed finish to put the hosts ahead before capitalising on Naby Sarr's defensive error.

    Their second success in four days has taken the Bluebirds up into 11th place after starting last weekend just three places clear of the relegation zone.

    Cardiff were unchanged after their 4-0 thumping of Luton eased the growing pressure on manager Neil Harris.

    Among the starters was Mark Harris, who marked his return to the side after a three-year absence with a crucial goal.

    Terriers boss Carlos Corberan also celebrated a victory at the weekend but was forced to make five changes to his winning side.

    Goalkeeper Ben Hamer returned in place of Ryan Schofield, who dropped to the substitutes bench.

    Hamstring injuries to Richard Stearman and Juninho Bacuna meant a return to the side for captain Chris Schindler and Demeaco Duhaney.

    Matty Daly was given his first senior start in the Welsh capital and Danny Ward led the line against the club he left in the summer.

    The Terriers dominated the ball for large spells of the first period but it was Cardiff, with their physical presence, who looked more likely to break the deadlock.

    Sean Morrison, fresh from scoring his first goal of the season against Luton, had a chance to double his tally after meeting Joe Ralls' corner at the back post but he could only head wide.

    Ward looked set to haunt his old team in the 29th minute when Duhaney got to the by-line and clipped the ball in but his tame shot was straight at Alex Smithies.

    Moore never looked like making the same mistake when he broke the deadlock in the 35th minute.

    Sheyi Ojo shifted the ball onto his left foot and worked a yard of space to beat Duhaney and whipped in a low cross which Moore calmly side-footed into the back of the net for his third goal in four matches.

    Corberan's men piled on the pressure in search of a leveller after the restart but some kamikaze defending undid all their progress in the 68th minute.

    Sarr was pressed hard by substitute Junior Hoilett and eventually coughed up possession in his own penalty area.

    Hoilett pounced on the ball and squared it across the six-yard box for Moore, who had a simple tap-in.

    There was still time for Glatzel to turn Rarmani Edmonds-Green and fire past Hamer with five minutes left to secure another comprehensive win for the Bluebirds.

    What the managers said...

    Cardiff's Neil Harris: "Again, Kieffer has bullied the centre-halves for the 75 minutes he was on the pitch. He is looking like a top acquisition by the club. He was a handful in the air, he is quick when he runs down the sides, he is taking care of the ball for us and scoring goals at the moment. He is making life very difficult for the opponents. Huddersfield changed to a three to deal with him and Mark Harris and I thought he was a real handful again.

    "Spurs are very good at the moment because of Harry Kane. No disrespect to Jose Mourinho, he is a legend, and there are very good players around him, but Harry Kane sets the tempo. Kieffer Moore and Gareth Bale do that for Wales and the players around them are very good."

    Huddersfield's Carlos Corberan: "We started the second half better and played in their half but then we conceded a key second goal in a situation we can avoid. We have to accept the result as they were better than us in both boxes. We had a lot of the ball but we didn't create enough chances - especially in the first half.

    "After the second goal, they protected their goal and the game became difficult for us. That is no excuse; this is one situation that we have to be prepared for."
