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.
