Huddersfield flies with tremendous power to the Championship9-01-2019
Huddersfield`s team has stepped up with a tremendous power to fall into the Championship. Tonight, the Terriers won eighth consecutive loss in the Premier League, but this time it was even more painful because it was a direct competitor in the battle for survival. David Wagner`s graduates fell 1:2 from Burnley at home and once again disappointed their supporters. The hosts first found the score in the 33rd minute. Isaac Mbenza centered to the left and Steve Muni headed the ball to the 1 - 0 goal. But the players of Burnley quickly returned to the match. In the 40th minute, Dwight McNeil flipped his opponent`s defender into the penalty box and landed on Chris Wood, who immediately knocked the ball into the net for 1:1. A minute later the situation for the hosts got worse. Christopher Schindler kept MacNeil away and received a second yellow and red card, leaving his teammates with a man less on the pitch. The guests took advantage of their numerical advantage and in the 74th minute they made a full turn. Ashley Westwood brought Ashley Barnes to a shot, and he did not make a mistake for 1:2. At the end, Burnley finished the match in a reduced turn after Robbie Brady also saw the red card in the judge`s hand.
This was the second consecutive win for Burnley, who went over the line and scored 18th place with 16 points. Huddersfield remains at the bottom with only 10 points in his asset.
