Huddersfield moved into third place on the table as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Jon Russell opened the scoring with a sumptuous strike in the 59th minute before Naby Sarr came off the bench to seal the three points in the 89th minute. They are four points behind Bournemouth in second place but have played two games more than them.
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “I think it was a very equal, very balanced game and in these games, the details can be the difference. Today, in my opinion, they were in our favor, which allowed us to win that game, plus the mentality of the team was very good and the defensive level of the team was high, too. Every game that we are going to play from now until the end of the season is going to be crucial; every game that we have played since the international break we knew would be crucial, too. Our mentality is game-by-game. Every time we are thinking of the future, we need to be focused on the present.”
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “First of all, credit to Carlos and Huddersfield. I thought they sat off, wanted to soak up pressure, and hit us on the counter-attack because they know the threat we have. But I thought we tried to push constantly to try and win the game so I know we’ve lost the game, but I thought, at times, we were excellent. They have scored a real freak goal, which has broken the deadlock; we were excellent and then we switched off for a corner. It could be one of the best things to happen to us, actually. We’ve got five games left and it is going to be a barnstorming finish.”
