Two years-ago to the day, Huddersfield Town gained promotion to the Premier League for the first time after an intense penalty shoot-out at Wembley.

After finishing the 2016/17 Sky Bet Championship season in fifth place, the Terriers made it through to the Play-Off Semi-Finals beating Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Town faced Reading at Wembley on 29 May 2017. The Terriers had some great chances in the game to go ahead but neither Michael Hefele or Izzy Brown could find the net. The game remained deadlocked and went to penalties.

It was advantage Reading in the penalty shoot-out after Michael Hefele’s spot kick was saved. However, Semi-Final hero Danny Ward came to the fore, once again, saving Jordan Obita’s penalty, immediately after Liam Moore missed.

That save gave Christopher Schindler the opportunity the write his name into Huddersfield Town folklore and he did so, burying the penalty and sending the Club into the Premier League for the first time.
