Huddersfield secured a spot in the playoffs as they produced one of the comfortable football results of the weekend in the Championship. Harry Toffolo opened the scoring in the 33rd minute before Danny Ward sealed the three points in the 44th minute. Huddersfield finishes the season in third place and will face Luton Town in the playoff semi-final while Bristol City finishes the season in 17th place.
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “This team has been growing by every minute in every game situation. Our target today was to finish in the highest position with the highest points possible and fortunately we’ve done that. The team was excellent, and I wanted to see this improvement the team because it can give us the confidence that we can dominate one game. The changes were to prepare every player and the team in the best way we can. I was prioritizing the individuals more rather than the collective because I wanted to help every player be ready for an important moment.”
Bristol City’s Nigel Pearson: “They’re as good as anybody in this league including the two that have gone up and they’ve got a great chance of progressing. When you have your chances against sides that you play who are better than you, you have to take them, and it didn’t quite happen for us today. For our fans, it’s been a frustrating year, it is for us as well. They’ve probably had a bit of an up and down season in terms of loving us, liking us, or disliking us. We’ll get better and the challenge for us now is to put together a campaign that gives us a chance of getting promoted ourselves. We need to aim high, there’s no point setting the bar low.”
