David Wagner leads Huddersfield away for sunshine break ahead of play-off final


The Wales worldwide denied Sam Hutchinson and Fernando Forestieri in the penalty shootout to help his team to a 4-3 win on penalties in the semi-final tie.

Huddersfield, which was the English champion each year from 1924-26, was most recently in the top flight in 1972, so would be a debutant in the Premier League.

Mooy, who was outstanding yet again for Huddersfield, converted his penalty in the shootout.

The game was due to be played at the John Smith's Stadium on Monday, May 29, but will be rescheduled for Friday, June 16, which was a blank weekend for both clubs following their exit from the Challenge Cup.

The first leg had finished goalless, and the second leg at the Hillsborough Stadium on Wednesday evening ended 1-1.

Inflation in Iran skyrocketed to 40 percent during the term of Ahmadinejad, while it dropped to 7.5 percent under Rouhani. Raisi is widely seen as Khamenei's preferred candidate - indeed, he is often mentioned as his possible successor.

Liverpool now sit fourth in the Premier League, knowing a win against Middlesbrough on Sunday will see them into next season's Champions League.

The 23-year-old has been a key figure in guiding the Terriers to the Championship play-off final, making two saves in the semi-final penalty shoot-out victory over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Operating with one of the smallest budgets in the second tier, Wagner has worked wonders with Huddersfield, with many of his signings being loan players.

Town eventually prevailed when Ward dived to his right to keep Forestieris effort out and set up an appearance against Reading in the final at Wembley.

We asked three dedicated supporters - one from Reading and two from Huddersfield - for their views. "Even if I speak about it, it sounds ridiculous, but it is true".
