Huddersfield grabbed a vital win that moved them into the playoff places with one of the comfortable football results against Hull City in the Championship. They were gifted the opening goal when Tom Lees capitalized on a blunder by goalkeeper Matt Ingram. Duane Holmes scored the second goal to put the game out of reach of the visiting Hull. Despite having the majority of the possession, the visitors could not conjure up any decent opportunities.
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “Being in the top six doesn’t change anything. We will have a very demanding game against Birmingham on Wednesday. It will be a tough game and the key now is how we recover and use the next three days. The players are thinking game by game. We just want to arrive at the games with the best level we can find to compete.”
Hull’s Grant McCann: “We gave ourselves a mountain to climb and I am disappointed. We felt there was a foul in the build-up, but we should have defended the corner better. Matty (Ingram) has got to punch it away.” he added. “They started strongly but we rallied after the first 10-15 minutes and got into some good areas. We got good balls into the box and it is really disappointing we didn’t get on the end of the crosses. Between boxes the play was good, but we have to be more ruthless at this level. We don’t feel we are that far away.”
