Jonathan Russell scored a dramatic winner to help Huddersfield produce one of the narrow football scores of the midweek action in the Championship. Tommy Doyle put the visitors ahead in the 61st minute before Josh Koroma equalized in the 88th minute. Just when it seemed that both sides would share the points, Jon Russell scored in the sixth minute of stoppage time and literally the last kick of the game.
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “I remember Bayern Munich were winning the game. And Manchester United scored two goals from set-pieces in extra-time and won the Champions League. This of course is not the Champions League but one of the skills you need to have as a player is the skill to not give up. So, I am pleased because the players fought to the end. That is one skill in football if you don’t have it is difficult to compete. Every player needs to have that mentality. It was more about that desire than the tactical side, but the players appreciated the situation.”
Cardiff’s Steve Morison: “For 80 minutes it was a pretty perfect away performance and what we had asked if the lads. We should have gone in at half-time winning. They had a lot of the ball but didn’t really hurt us. We had all the chances and the place was getting frustrated. Then we get the goal. But games change on moments and the incident with Tom Lees geared them up and got the fans right behind them. Their bench is always vocal and loud. That’s what you get when you come here.”
