Huddersfield manager David Wagner has claimed that his side were '1000%' denied a clear penalty in their 0-0 draw away to Cardiff on Saturday afternoon.
The low quality Premier League affair failed to produce many moments of interest, but the one notable incident of the game saw referee Lee Mason point to the penalty spot after Joe Bennett seemed to bring down Florent Hadergjonaj, only to reverse his decision after consulting with hi

"He said to me the first one wasn't a penalty and the second one I haven't seen - I don't know exactly what he meant. We will obviously speak to him because it is a decision that is anything but understandable and it's cost us points today.
Along with Burnley, the Terriers have not been awarded a single league penalty this season, and with Cardiff also struggling to score from open play, a chance from the spot would have likely settled the clash.
Huddersfield can however take consolation knowing they've ended their disappointing run of eight straight defeats, but would have felt disappointed not to claim all three points.
Wagner added: "Performance-wise and in terms of attitude, I think we left everything out on the grass. There was only one team who deserved to get anything out of this game.

"A point is not enough - this is the truth. We had to win this game today, this point is not enough. I have players in my mind [to improve the team] but I've had them in my mind for a long period.
