Huddersfield wins soccer's richest game, into Premier League

Huddersfield have made light of their tiny budget and modest recent history under Wagner Stu Forster  Getty Images

The rivalry between Huddersfield Town and Leeds United has been at an all-time high in the Sky Bet Championship this season, as both clubs challenged for promotion to the Premier League. We said no limits, now we know where our limit is.

"We wanted to find new ways to be competitive". Since I arrived, I was always confronted with "no experience, no experience of English football, no experience without the winter break, no experience of the play-offs".

"Experience is important, but if you have passion, desire and ideas, you can match it". After Christmas I thought we have a real chance to get into the play-offs.

But rather than copying those before them, Wagner is keen the club makes its own history. After what they did in the semi-final, I thought the circumstances wouldn't be a problem.

"We have had so many setbacks, so many problems, we don't have the biggest squad, but we trusted and believed in ourselves". Before I came last season we spoke about what we wanted to do to get in the Premier League.

Huddersfield Town earned their place in the Prem, after their 0-0 match with Reading saw them take the PK shootout 4-3.

But Liam Moore blasted his spot kick over the bar and Danny Ward saved from Jordan Obita before Christoper Schindler stroked home the decisive kick.

'I have a contract and I'm very happy here, ' said the Dutchman. You can talk about taking risks and taking the initiative but this is not just a league game, in the players' minds there are other things.

The Queens Park Rangers manager boldly stated the Terriers would drop down into League One, however they exceeded everyone's expectations by being promoted to the Premier League.

"Finals are there to be won and that's what we tried to do". Despite so many victories, they ended the regular season with a negative goal difference.

"We've had such a great season - what a wonderful pay-off to the season".

When asked if Huddersfield would survive in the Premier League, Hoyle added: "I'd like to think so, but it's a really tough division".
