Alex Pritchard has described Huddersfield's 4-1 Premier League win against Bournemouth as 'massive' in their battle for survival.

The 24-year-old attacking midfielder scored his first goal for the Terriers following his January transfer window move from Norwich City, as David Wagner's men secured a first win of 2018 against the Cherries at the John Smith's Stadium on Sunday lunch-time.

We've got to keep this momentum up and we've got to get points on the table because there are loads of teams in this.

Pritchard put Town in front after just seven minutes, but Bournemouth hit back to level just six minutes later through Junior Stanislas.

However, Steve Mounie put the hosts back in front on 27 minutes and then added his second of the game midway through the second half to make it 3-1.

Pritchard won a stoppage time penalty which Rajiv van la Parra converted to put the icing on the cake as the Terriers ended a five-game losing streak in the league and moved out of the relegation places.

Afterwards, Pritchard told BT Sport: "It was a massive win after the run we've had.

"We've got to keep this momentum up and we've got to get points on the table because there are loads of teams in this.

"We've got big games coming up and we have to show that week in week out."

Wagner added: "We needed a few minutes at the start where Bournemouth were strong but after that we played superb football. It was one of the performances of the season.

"It was our idea to press the opponent high up the pitch and win the ball. It was a fantastic afternoon for us."

Town, who are 3/10 not to be relegated this season, are 4/1 to win their next Premier League game at bottom club West Brom on 24th February, while Albion are priced at 17/20 to win and the draw is 5/2.
