Huddersfield Town Promoted to Premier League

Huddersfield Town has won promotion to the English Premier League with a 4-3 victory on penalties over Reading in the Championship play-off final at Wembley Monday afternoon.

Huddersfield finished the Championship season in the fifth position with 81 points before going into the play-off. Town will now join Newcastle United and Brighton as the teams to play in the topflight Premier League next season.

Christopher Schindler struck the winning spot-kick, after Danny Ward had saved from Reading’s Jordan Obita.
The Terriers’ Izzy Brown missed the best chance in normal time, placing wide from two yards at the far post.

Town will return to the top flight for the first time since 1972, but Reading who finished third on 85 points in the regular season now faces a fifth straight year outside the Premiership.
