Huddersfield wins soccer's richest game, promoted to EPL

Vera Richards | 07 June, 2017, 04:33

Goalkeeper Danny Ward, who saved two penalties in their semi-final shoot-out win over Sheffield Wednesday, replicated his heroics in the final by keeping out Jordan Obita's spot-kick.

"We wanted to find new ways to be competitive, I'm so happy we've proven that experience is not everything, particularly here in England".

"We need to give it another shot next season".

Huddersfield created their two killer chances of a tight match in the opening 15 minutes, neither of which they could make the most of. "Such a small club is now in the best league in the world, it's just insane".

Gab Marcotti provides insight into Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner as the Terriers move up to the Premier League.

A lively start to the match did not offer a true reflection of what was to follow, with the teams - separated by just four points at the end of the regular season - cancelling each other out all over the field.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "By the way, Ian Holloway, all the best for next season".

Huddersfield manager David Wagner, who was greeted with scorn when Hoyle plucked him from his role as Borussia Dortmund's reserve team coach in November 2015, said he was delighted the team had disproved the critics.

"A lot of the pundits wrote us off before the season", said the 45-year-old German-born former United States global. Every year we are competing with some real big boys.

Jaap Stam's team grew in confidence as the game opened up but quality efforts on goal were few and far between.

"It's very hard to take", admitted Al-Habsi.

"That's how it goes".

"We have to be focused on ourselves and this football club has to be focused on themselves", Wagner said. We have been working for 11 months - its hard but that's how it goes.

However, Nahki Wells kept the Terriers in the game, firing home to make it 3-2 to Reading.

Wagner and the squad will travel from the John Smith's Stadium to St George's Square, via Northumberland Street, arriving in the town centre at around 18:20 local time. Normally you don't get in the play-off final in the first season but we did.
