Four big goals secure important home win for the Terriers!

- Huddersfield Town 4-2 Middlesbrough
- Back-to-back wins for the Terriers
- Goals from Ruffels, Koroma and a Pearson brace

Town secured back-to-back wins this afternoon with an inspired 4-2 home victory against Middlesbrough at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Despite going into the second half a goal down, four second half goals secured this important Sky Bet Championship win for Town, with goals from Josh Ruffels, Josh Koroma and a brace from Matty Pearson.

Town started the game strong with skipper Jonathan Hogg having a shot from outside the box, but this went well wide of the Middlesbrough goal.

Following on from this, within five minutes of kick-off, the Terriers had a great chance to take the lead – Duane Holmes sent a lovely cross into the ball, which was kept in by a nice touch from Michał Helik and then sent to Josh Koroma, his shot from the edge of the box was cleared and hooked off the line by Darragh Lenihan.

Middlesbrough had their first chance of the game in the 13th minute as Chuba Akpom headed the ball wide of Tomáš Vaclík’s goal.

Town were forced to make a first half change due to an injury with Holmes, which sae Ben Jackson come on in the 25th minute.

Aaron Ramsey fancied his chances and shot from outside the box, but this was anticipated and scooped up by Vaclík.

Helik produced a great block just before the half hour mark as he denied a close range cross and sent the ball out for a corner.

The Boro created nice play between Cameron Archer and Ramsey for their next chance, Ramsey’s shot went high and was chipped over the goal.

The Terriers had a chance in the 38th minute through a low shot from first half substitute Jackson after he was headed the ball from Jack Rudoni, but this shot went wide of the Middlesbrough goal.

This afternoon’s first goal came for Middlesbrough in the 43rd minute from Marcus Forss after he was squared the ball from a stuck Archer who couldn’t shoot due to being stifled by Town’s defence by the near post.

Due to this late first half goal, Town went into the break a goal behind.

Just 22 seconds into the first half, Ruffels scored Town’s equaliser and sent the John Smith’s Stadium into uproar. The full back carried the ball towards the box and beat several Middlesbrough players to make it one-on-one with Zack Steffen, it was a great finish into the side of the goal.

Koroma scored our second goal of the afternoon after Danny Ward sent a lovely through ball into the final third for our number 10 to run onto, he carried it to the edge of the box and curled it beautifully into the bottom far corner.

Our third goal in 12 minutes was scored by Matty Pearson, but this was created by Koroma who had skipped past his man and carried the ball into the box. He squared the ball to find Ward, but this was deflected out for a corner. The corner was played into the box and headed back towards the centre of the box by Helik, then volleyed into the back of the net by Pearson.

Pearson scored his brace in the 67th minute as he ran onto Ward’s cross, which had drifted wide, and tucked the ball into the back of the net.

Middlesbrough found the back of the net and thought they had scored a second, but the referee gave a free-kick to Town instead.

Akpom eventually scored the second goal for the Boro in 74th minute as he headed the ball into the back of the net after Riley McGree’s cross to the far corner,

Rudoni’s shot went just wide in the 84th minute after an excellent break from Town, which was led by Ward – his cross found Rudoni who took a touch, but his left-footed shot went just wide. This was the last chance and the Terriers finish with a 4-2 victory in the Sky Bet Championship.
