Missing being at the John Smith’s Stadium? #HTTV has you covered, with the full 90 minutes from Huddersfield Town’s 4-1 Premier League win over AFC Bournemouth back in February 2018.
The victory was Town’s biggest home Premier League win, and the Club’s joint-biggest in the competition overall!
In front of the BT Sport cameras, the Terriers’ afternoon got off to a perfect start at the John Smith’s Stadium when Alex Pritchard powered home the opener, and his first Town goal, inside seven minutes.
After Bournemouth had hit back through Junior Stanislas, Steve Mounié connected with Aaron Mooy’s whipped free kick to restore Town’s lead.
David Wagner’s side had a third on 66 minutes when a Mounié strike found its way in thanks to a deflection off Bournemouth defender Steve Cook, with just over 20 minutes left to play, on a sunny early Saturday afternoon in West Yorkshire.
Rajiv van La Parra completed a memorable day for the Terriers, deep into stoppage time, converting from the penalty spot to make it 4-1 to Town, with referee Michael Oliver’s whistle going soon after to bring an end to the encounter.
Following the final whistle, #HTTV caught up with midfielder Alex Pritchard, after a free-flowing attacking performance that saw him score his first goal in the blue-and-white of Huddersfield Town.
“It was a massive result; given the run we’ve had. I think the next seven games are massive, but I thought today it was fully deserved, I thought we came out the blocks brilliantly,” he said.
“It was a great feeling, a big weight off my shoulders to get the goal. When we conceded, we then didn’t stop, we kept going and we deserved the points.
“I think the way we worked off the ball to win it back caused them problems. They’ve got good players and keep the ball well, but we were dogged, and we deserved it.”
An overjoyed David Wagner also spoke to #HTTV after the game. He said:
“If you know that the players played 120 minutes on Tuesday and that AFC Bournemouth is on such a fantastic run in recent weeks, that makes this afternoon, the performance and the result even greater.
“This was for sure one of the best performances of the season from the lads so far.
“I am delighted, I’m very proud for everybody and what they’ve done.”
