Little was expected from Huddersfield Town this season, after they finished 19th in the 2015-16 season, a mere two points from the relegation zone.

QPR boss Ian Holloway, not short on Football League experience – was among the first to suggest Huddersfield would be in trouble this season; predicting that they would finish 23rd.

“I haven't seen much progression from the club during the back end of last season,” Holloway told Sky Sports in August last year.

“David Wagner is pretty inexperienced and if results turn, then they may struggle to turn things around.”

As reported by ​GiveMeSport, Holloway’s predictions have been emphatically rebuffed as Wagner’s side have secured promotion to the Premier League for the first time following Monday’s penalty shootout win over Reading at Wembley.

The Terriers have not appeared in the top flight of English football since way back in 1972.

Speaking to the press, Wagner said; "I'm one of the most happy men on the planet today. I'm so proud of this group of players, what they've done over the whole season.


"There was no doubt about whether we were able to handle the atmosphere. After what they did in the semi-final, I thought the circumstances wouldn't be a problem.

"This competition is really hard. If you win it you like it, but my thoughts are as well with the other three teams which had unbelievable seasons, especially Reading."

Huddersfield will be pitted against the financial might of English football’s super-clubs next term, but loyal supporters will be able to watch their beloved Terriers at the John Smith's Stadium for an absolute steal.

Fans of the West Yorkshire club who have held season tickets since 2009 will reportedly be able to buy one for just £100, a figure eclipsed by exorbitant average price of their Premier League competitors.
