Terriers fairytale goes on

18 May 2017 03:22:26 EST

Huddersfield Town are one match away from gaining a place in the Premier League after beating Sheffield Wednesday in a penalty shoot-out.

Terriers goalkeeper Danny Ward saved two penalties as David Wagner's side won the shoot-out 4-3 after the Championship play-off semi-final had finished 1-1 on aggregate.

Having drawn 0-0 at home in the first leg, Town fell behind in the 51st minute at Hillsborough when Steven Fletcher headed home only for a Tom Lees own goal to bring the tie level.

Wales international Ward - who is on loan at Huddersfield from Liverpool - then saved spot-kicks from Sam Hutchinson and Fernando Forestieri as Town set up a play-off final encounter with Reading at Wembley.

Huddersfield are 27/20 to win the final and reach the top-flight for the first time since 1972 while a Reading victory can be backed at 11/4. Jaap Stam's Royals side edged past Fulham in the other play-off semi-final.

Wagner said after the game: "Everyone knows most pundits said we would be in relegation trouble or we'd get relegated and now we're one step away from the Premier League. We are the small dog, the terrier, but we have belief.

"Now we are in the final the fairytale goes on and we want to write the last chapter at Wembley."
