This Saturday Town are taking on QPR, so we thought we’d have a look back at the Terrier’s top four wins against the Hoops.
Over the years, Town have had a number of memorable wins against Queens Park Rangers.
Here’s some of our favourites!
QPR 1-2 Huddersfield Town – 11/02/2017
The Terrier’s earned their fifth straight win through two great goals in the first half and then holding a strong defence to suppress QPR’s second half fight-back.
Goals from Izzy Brown and Nahki Wells put David Wagner’s side ahead, however, QPR’s Luke Freeman managed to pull one back for the Hoops before the half-time whistle.
The Terrier’s managed to hold firm throughout the second half, with ‘keeper Danny Ward producing some stunning saves to keep the hosts at bay. This victory meant that the Terriers moved up to third in the Championship table.
Huddersfield Town 2-1 QPR – 17/09/2016
In their quest for Premier League promotion, Town beat QPR 2-1 at home to go two points clear at the top of the Championship table.
Kasey Palmer headed home Rajiv van La Parra’s cross to give Huddersfield the lead by the end of the first half. Town continued to dominate in the second-half and extended their lead through Elias Kachunga, who headed Tommy Smith’s cross into the back of the net.
A tense finish was ensured however after Idrissa Sylla scored a header for QPR but Town held on to claim the win.
Huddersfield Town 1-0 QPR – 04/12/1999
The Terriers rained supreme over QPR at the McAlpine Stadium in December 1999.
The only goal of the game was scored by Clyde Wijnhard, who towered above the QPR defence to head home a cross from close range.
Huddersfield Town 2-0 QPR – 17/10/1998
The two goals from this victory came from Rob Edwards and Ben Thornley.
Rob Edwards opened the scoring in the first-half, placing a cleverly taken free kick in the bottom left corner, way out of QPR keeper Ludek Miklosko’s reach.
The second came after the break as a failed QPR clearance fell to Thornley’s feet, who fired an ambitious long-range attempt right into the top right corner. A goal worth watching again and again!
