In fact, Lee Clark's side twice had to rely on the woodwork to prevent a Yeovil goal.
Jordon Rhodes, who had scored 14 goal in his last six matches, was kept quiet as the Terriers were pinned back for part of the first half. But he did have the visitor's best attempt on goal, forcing a fine save from goalkeeper Marek Stech with a header after 39 minutes.
Yeovil came close to taking the lead after 66 minutes when Nathan Jones fired across the goal at the end of a well-rehearsed free-kick, and six minutes later Dominic Blizzard hit the crossbar. The rebound was fired wide by Edward Upson.
The goal came after 80 minutes. Scott Arfield had his fierce shot well saved by Stech but Rhodes picked up the clearance and crossed into the goalmouth where substitute Anton Robinson provided the final touch.
As Yeovil pulled out all the stops in the search of an equaliser, Oli Johnson hit the bar.
