The Terriers were cancelled out by Reading over the course of 120 minutes in world football’s richest fixture.
With neither side able to find a breakthrough, a goalless draw led to a penalty shoot-out, with on-loan Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward the hero for Huddersfield, before Christopher Schindler rolled in the winning spot-kick.

David Wagner has transformed Huddersfield during his short time at the club.

He was as delighted as anybody after seeing his side prevail on Monday, taking in the celebrations both on the field with the club’s supporters and back in the dressing room.
