Huddersfield Town promoted to the English Premier League after 45 year wait
Championship side Huddersfield Town became the third team to secure a place in next season’s Premier League, beating Reading at Wembley.

Goalkeeper Danny Ward was the hero as Huddersfield Town beat Reading 4-3 on penalties to win promotion to the Premier League for the first time.

Izzy Brown missed a glorious early chance for Huddersfield which proved to be the best of a tense and scrappy 120 minutes of action, which ended 0-0.

Huddersfield’s Michael Hefele and Reading’s Liam Moore then missed in the shoot-out, before the decisive moment saw Ward save from Jordan Obita, allowing Christopher Schindler to hit the winning spot-kick and spark delirious celebrations.

Promotion in David Wagner’s first full season as manager means Huddersfield end a 45-year wait for top-flight football, reaching the highest level for the first time in the Premier League era.

The stakes were huge, with the value of Huddersfield’s promotion estimated at £170million, a figure that rises to £290m if top- flight survival is secured next season.
