Terriers lap it up with £170m Wembley win


By Simon Peach

Huddersfield are back in the top flight after 45 years, clinching Premier League football and a £170million windfall by beating Reading on penalties in the Championship play-off final.

Christopher Schindler scored the winning spot kick for the Terriers to secure a 4-3 penalty shoot-out triumph over Jaap Stam's Reading after 120 goalless minutes at Wembley, and it led to wild celebrations on the field and in the stands. Schindler admitted: "It's unbelievable. We put so much effort into the whole season. I think we deserved it and the feeling is unbelievable now."

He said of his decisive contribution: "The heart rate was pretty high. I think nobody is 100 per cent comfortable taking a penalty.
