On this day, Huddersfield Town recorded two memorable Play-Off Semi-Final wins against Brentford and Sheffield Wednesday.

The first came on 17 May 1995 and the Terriers beat Brentford in the Division Two Play-Off Semi-Finals.

Neil Warnock’s side drew the first leg 1-1 at the McAlpine Stadium before falling behind in the second leg at Griffin Park. However, Andy Booth’s 30th minute equaliser and a battling performance took the game to penalties.

Despite Pat Scully missing Town’s second penalty kick, goalkeeper Steve Francis became the hero saving spot kicks from both Mundee and Bates before Darren Bullock scored the winner.

12 years later, Town triumphed in the Play-Off Semi-Finals, once again, but this time in the Sky Bet Championship!

After drawing the first leg 0-0 with Sheffield Wednesday at the John Smith’s Stadium, the Terriers travelled to Hillsborough.

Town fell behind, but the impact of Collin Quaner helped David Wagner’s side equalise 15 minutes from time.

The game went to extra-time and penalties before Danny Ward stole the headline saving spot kicks from Sam Hutchinson and Fernando Forestieri. Chris Löwe, Michael Hefele, Nahki Wells and Aaron Mooy found the net in the shoot-out.
