TERRIERS ARE FEELING THE PAIN AGAIN
HANDS up who wants to face Fulham in the playoffs? Thought not.
This is a Huddersfield side that kept Sergio Aguero quiet, stymied Dwight Gayle and prides itself on defensive rigour. But for the second time this season, the Terriers were powerless to resist a fluid, razor-sharp attacking unit that will frighten the top six.
The visitors were greatly aided by a system that left their full-backs fatally exposed and lynchpin Aaron Mooy stranded up the pitch. Either David Wagner dropped a tactical clanger or his wingers are in for a rollicking. But any formation would have struggled to contain the movement of a front five that interchanged, broke at speed and finished with clinical detachment.
Trying to stop Fulham scoring is like trying to plug holes in a colander; whoever does draw them may find fighting fire with fire the only viable policy.
If that is Huddersfield, Wagner will face the toughest task of his burgeoning managerial career.
