Soccer-Unfancied Huddersfield go top after home draw

* Promoted Huddersfield drew 0-0 at home with Southampton

* It put them top of the table before Manchester United played in the late game

* The home side dominated but could not beat Saints goalkeeper Fraser Forster

* He saved from Steve Mounie and Tom Ince

* Southampton rarely troubled the home defence until the last minute

* Huddersfield at West Ham next; Southampton host Watford HUDDERSFIELD TOWN 0 SOUTHAMPTON 0 Aug 26 (Reuters)-Promoted Huddersfield Town extended their unbeaten record after three games of the Premier League season but could not manage a third successive win as visiting Southampton held out for a goalless draw.

Seven points was still enough to put the Yorkshire side on top of the table on goal difference, at least until Manchester United play Leicester City in the late game.

Huddersfield were the better side but goalkeeper Fraser Forster kept them at bay with saves from new signings Steve Mounie and Tom Ince.

Nathan Redmond wasted two chances for the visitors, who otherwise failed to trouble the Town defence until the last minute, when Ryan Bertrand’s effort was cleared off the line.

They also remain unbeaten after three games. (Reporting by Steve Tongue,; Editing by Neville Dalton)
