Okay, so the actual nature of the game was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests, but the Terriers can be very happy with their afternoon’s work nonetheless.
Not so happy will be Newcastle United, who witnessed defenders Paul Dummett and Florian Lejeune pick up injuries in the 0-2 defeat at Spurs to join DeAndre Yedlin on the sidelines. Factor in the red card shown to Jonjo Shelvey for a moment of madness – not the first time in his career he’s accomplished the feat of being an idiot, and it was a pretty dour day all round for the Magpies.
So happy, confident Huddersfield against a down in the dumps Newcastle….if the hosts can keep Christian Atsu quiet, they have every chance of another decent day at the office.
Huddersfield -0.25 Asian Handicap (27/25 with bet365)
