David Wagner accused referee Lee Mason of costing Huddersfield a precious Premier League win at Cardiff after he overturned his decision to award the Terriers a 76th-minute penalty.

"Everybody knows the referee gave a big decision that cost us the game," said Huddersfield boss Wagner. "It was the most clear-cut chance of the game and they took it away from us. After seeing the footage, it's a clear penalty."
