Surging Huddersfield Win Again – Beat Leeds 2-1


With an 89th minute goal today the Terriers had their second big scalp in just four days as they beat Leeds United 2-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium this afternoon.

A late goal from Michael Hefele gave Huddersfield all 3 points, after they had destroyed leaders Brighton on Thursday night 3-1 at home, so it’s been a great four days for Huddersfield.

The Terriers went ahead after 27 minutes of the game through Isaiah Brown before Chris Wood equalized eight minutes later.



In stoppage time both managers Garry Monk and David Wagner were sent off after a touchline clash.

That was after the German manager did a Jose Mourinho and ran the length of the pitch to celebrate the late winner with his players.

Oh my – Rafa Benitez would never do that.

Huddersfield now move above Leeds in the Championship table by a single point – and that was the Terriers 6th win in the last 8 games in the league.

Brighton are at Brentford in another important Championship game today with the kickoff at 3:00 pm.

Here’s the current standings after the Huddersfield win.

    I feel bad wanting Hoots to lose because he seems like a genuinely canny bloke (and his hair matched our strip) but I’ll be watching Brighton and wanting them to get battered today.

    True we should be careful about completely overhauling the team for Prem league and not do that but we should also ensure that we have prem quality players in the starting xi – for example ciaran clark has played really well for us this season – but i’m still aware of how bad he was for villa for years in the prem so it’s highly likely he will get found out again next season – so bench for squad depth yes – starting xi for prem fixtures – no.

    There are a few key positions which need top quality signings to be filled so we can finish top 10 next season. CB, No. 10 and CF definitely

    Aye Leeds was the one team I thought was maybe capable of catching us a few weeks ago. So I’m glad to see them dropping off.

    I think Wagner done the same thing a few months ago when they scored a late winner.

    And Monk has probably been moaning and crying about every decision all game.

    Another good result today. The teams below us keep dropping points and leap flogging each other without really closing the gap much. We just need to keep winning and not worry too much about those below us. We’ve still got to play them again so it’s in our own hands completely.
    For all the huff and puff of the Hudd v Leeds game, I lost count of the times both sides unnecessarily gave the ball back to their opponents. If we wanted any team to win, it was Huddersfield. Let those beneath us keep scratching each other’s eyes out whilst we ease away.
    So Jordan’s expertise on Newcastle comes from living occasionally next to SJH in Spain then? SJH must have had a better house, because his bitterness towards us is pathetic. So we wanted Pardew out? So did Palace fans – and a damn sight quicker than us. His point is? See how much his club’s attendance drops if they go down again in May. 12-15k, you watch.

    Bobby, and others at the game yesterday.
    Was wondering if you had seen Shelvey getting very tetchy and treading a fine line yesterday after someone kicked him.
    He was getting involved in some daft stuff when the ball had gone, and leaving his foot in, over the ball / high challenges with studs up.. I was cringeing, sure he was gonna get sent off cos he seemed to have the red mist for a time. Lads watching on streams might not have had a view of some of it, with cameras following the ball.

    Nov, not wrong there mate. Also, for all the stick he gets, having Colback team up with Shelvey again will help. Some midfield partnerships just work and theirs is one. I think Hayden is the most skillful, but Colback is the perfect foil for Shelvey. He does the dirty work for both of them, which allows Shelvey the freedom to express himself.
    The return of Atsu will also give us more options as well. Diame is clearly the better choice between himself and Perez, so we’ll be back to full strength soon.
    Although I thing Hanley did OK yesterday, he was at fault both times when players got in behind us towards the end. Maybe due to him tiring, I don’t know, but he really should’ve stopped both balls coming through. Like to see more of Findley tbh. Looks calm on the ball.

    Sing, Aye, he’s like that though. I wish he could learn to control himself a bit more, but that said, he does get more than he gives. He clearly gets targeted, but he does need to let his skills do the talking more. The more of an edge to his game the better he plays, but it is a fine line he’s treading. I’m sure Rafa knows it though mate. He constantly calls him over for a word during any hold ups and it’s probably to reinforce his orders to keep it down.

    sing in the corner @14 – I have to say I didn’t notice it yesterday. However last Wednesday Shelvey got involved with A QPR player and the argy-bargee carried on after our first goal – he was lucky a boy then.

    He’s a marked man and needs to be smarter, as Rafa said last time. I don’t think he looks to have learned too much. By God, do we need him to keep out of all that stuff..!

    Novo, they’ll miss Dunk though. Dunk and Knockeart seem to keep then going. Swans just equalised against City, so I’m away to watch the end of that. Later though.

    What a cruel game football is. Swansea worked their socks off only to be robbed of a deserved point right at the end. Keeper should’ve held the header though, it wasn’t the most difficult.
    Leicester must be getting worried now. All those below them starting to play well…

    Like I said, Brighton missing Dunk. Those two I mentioned are the glue that holds them together imo. If they lost both at the same time I think they’d go to pieces!

    Yeah hard to believe the Leicester story, whichever way you look at it!! Wonder if a few are looking back at the lucrative offers that were on the table last summer. Vardy, for one!

    Howay Brentford!

    As much as I like Hoots and appreciate what he did for us, I’d love to see us be joined by Leeds and 1 from either Sheff Wed or Huddersfield.

    Palace, Swansea and Sunderland to go down, would be great for the North. We’d have a derby with Boro and Yorkshire would suddenly be well represented again with Hull, Leeds and one other.

    Would spare our away acolytes a few miles on the clock over the course of a season too.

    Could it be that Brighton have hit the wall?
    Still early in their game of course, but if it stays like that suddenly things are looking a lot rosier at the top of the Championship!
