Jonathan Hogg hit a stoppage-time winner against Barnsley to send Huddersfield top of the Sky Bet Championship and give David Wagner's side their third win of the season.
Chris Loewe curled a well-placed shot into the top corner to put Huddersfield ahead in the 27th minute but Alfie Mawson headed Barnsley level shortly after the break.
However, Hogg kept his composure in the Barnsley penalty area to score first league goal since 2009 in the 92nd minute to claim a 2-1 win and put the Terriers top.
Brighton remain second in the table despite only managing a 2-2 draw away at Reading, who edged out of the relegation zone with a point.
Reading's Joey van den Berg headed Anthony Knockaert's corner past his own goalkeeper to cancel out John Swift's opener for the home side.
Knockaert put the Seagulls ahead a minute into the second-half but the Royals' captain Paul McShane scored his first goal for the club as Brighton were knocked off top spot - despite maintaining their unbeaten start to the season.
Kevin McDonald ensured Fulham continue to defy early-season expectations by securing a point late on against Cardiff, with the Cottagers fourth in the table after two wins and two draws.
Fulham's 16-year-old left-back Ryan Sessegnon put the Cottagers ahead a minute before the break with the first senior goal of his career.
Joe Ralls' stunning 30-yard strike with his weaker foot put Cardiff ahead in the second-half and Anthony Pilkington added another brilliant solo effort, but McDonald scored four minutes from time to earn a 2-2 draw.
Newcastle's £9m signing Dwight Gayle scored his fourth goal of the season to give Rafa Benitez his second league win of the season as they overcame Bristol City 1-0 at Ashton Gate.
After defeats in their opening two games Newcastle kept a clean sheet for the first time in the league this season as the Magpies moved up to seventh in the table.
Wolves claimed their second win of the season in the Midlands derby against Birmingham City, who are yet to win at home this campaign.
Che Adams' first-time finish on his full debut for Birmingham put the home side ahead but Joe Mason drew Walter Zenga's side level. Danny Batth then put Wolves ahead in the second half before Iceland international Jon Dadi Bodvarsson scored his second goal for the club to make sure all three points went to Zenga's team.
The Blues' 18-year-old striker Jack Storer was also sent off in the second-half for a headbutt offence.
Blackburn remain bottom of the league despite earning their first point of the season in a 2-2 draw against Burton Albion.
Blackburn's Craig Conway blasted a 25-yard strike in off the underside of the bar midway through the first-half but Jackson Irvine equalised for newly-promoted Burton just before half-time.
After Sam Gallagher put Rovers ahead in the second-half, Burton's Tom Naylor scored two minutes from time to keep Owen Coyle's side rooted at the foot of the table.
A double from Oliver Burke helped Nottingham Forest get their second win of the season in a dramatic 4-3 victory over Wigan, despite two goals from Will Grigg.
Britt Assombalonga took just six minutes to give Forest the lead, scoring his third goal of the season after latching onto Dan Burn's short back pass, but Michael Jacobs drew the away side level five minutes later.
Oliver Burke and Grigg then scored two apiece in an end-to-end second-half before Forest's Thomas Lam snatched it in the 90th minute.
Queens Park Rangers suffered a surprise 2-0 home defeat to Preston North End but remain sixth in the league after two wins and two defeats from their opening four games.
Jermaine Beckford scored his first goal of the season for Preston North End in the first-half, and a Nedum Onuoha own-goal put the home side further behind after the break.
Rotherham still sit in the bottom three despite winning for the first time this season with a 1-0 victory over Brentford.
Striker Danny Ward calmly slotted past Brentford goalkeeper Daniel Bentley after racing through one-on-one to score the only goal of the game.
Garry Monk secured his first win in charge of Leeds in the lunchtime kick-off after goals from Marcus Antonsson and Chris Wood saw off Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
