0 ............ WAT­FORD to­wards stay­ing up!

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

for an­other penalty shortly af­ter­wards as Lau­rent De­poitre was wres­tled to the ground in the area, but Paw­son once again waved away Town’s claims.

It didn’t look as though Town would get a win­ner af­ter Jonathan Hogg fired wide from the edge of the box, but up stepped Ince in the dy­ing min­utes to send Town into dream­land.

Sub­sti­tute Philip Billing launched a long throw-in to­wards the box, but Wat­ford were able to clear, with the ball land­ing at the feet of Ter­ence Kon­golo on the half­way line.

The Nether­lands in­ter­na­tional hooked the ball back into the area, where De­poitre was able to beat Se­bas­tian Prodl and flick the ball to­wards the by­line.

Mathias ‘Zanka’ Jor­gensen was first on the scene for Town, opt­ing to roll a de­li­cious ball across the area for Ince rather than shoot­ing him­self.

The ex-Liver­pool man made no mis­take and con­verted from eight yards out to spark wild cel­e­bra­tions at the John Smith’s Sta­dium and send Town closer to Premier League sur­vival.

The win sends Town to 14th in the top-flight ta­ble, seven points clear of the rel­e­ga­tion zone with four games to play.

On a pos­i­tive day for the Ter­ri­ers, Southamp­ton blew a two-goal lead to lose to Chelsea, while Swansea City drew with Ever­ton.

Crys­tal Palace were Town’s only rel­e­ga­tion ri­vals to earn a vic­tory on Satur­day, with Roy Hodg­son’s men beat­ing Brighton and Hove Al­bion 3-2. Tom Ince sweeps in the win­ner (main pic­ture), Aaron Mooy feels the chal­lenge from Se­bas­tian Prodl (above) and head coach David Wag­ner and Alex Pritchard cel­e­brate (below)

Aaron Mooy re­leases Collin Quaner clear on goal with a lovely dinked pass - but Adrian Mari­appa makes a fan­tas­tic last-ditch tackle in the box.

Steve Mounie meets an Alex Pritchard cor­ner; his header is flicked to­wards goal three yards out by Quaner, but the shot is saved and the flag goes up for off­side.
