Huddersfield wallop Bournemouth for vital victory

HEAD COACH David Wagner believes Huddersfield Town displayed the belief that can carry the club to survival when sweeping aside in-form Bournemouth.

The Socceroos star played a decisive role for the Terriers as they secured a key victory in their battle against relegation, laying on two assists for Steve Mounie in their 4-1 win over Eddie Howe's side.

Junior Stanislas had cancelled out Pritchard's early opener - which was also the 24-year-old playmaker's first Premier League goal - but Huddersfield halted their five-game losing run in the Premier League in style. "We said before the game that this is massive for us and that after Old Trafford we had the hard fixtures behind us". It looked bad but Wagner said that it was a cut rather than ligament damage. Now it's the first time that we've been in the bottom three, because of goal difference, and now we are the team who can chase.

One player who is definitely out though is Tommy Smith after suffering concussion against Birmingham on Tuesday evening, while Christopher Schindler and Laurent Depoitre are doubtful but Danny Williams is back in contention after suffering a dead leg.

Last week's 2-0 defeat at Manchester United had plunged Town into the bottom three for the first time and Wagner was delighted with his players' response. "He is a talent and this is why we signed him".

Mounie raised the mood and could have iced a fine individual display with a hat-trick had he been given the ball for the late penalty, but watched as Van la Parra took responsibility.

"Steve worked very well with Pritchard as the first defender".

"The most important was the win, even if I wanted to take the penalty".

For Bournemouth, in contrast, a seven-game unbeaten sequence came to an end in West Yorkshire.

Mooy had once again had an impressive game for Huddersfield, and anxious the home side when he picked up a knee injury in a 74th-minute collision, and had to be stretchered off to be replaced by Billing. Instead of doggedly attempting to defend their lead they kept going forward trying to increase their advantage, and gained a reward just past the hour when Mooy, inevitably, sent in a low cross from the left that MouniƩ met with a first-time side-foot finish.

Howe explained how he was finding it very hard to take any positives from the game. We fought back very well, but after that, we just faded away.

"Unfortunately for us, we allowed that to happen by conceding early".
