Huddersfield keeps Premier League dream alive by securing top six which sends Barnsley to League 1 with Derby


Huddersfield confirmed their place in the top six in the Championship to end the season with a 2-1 home win that relegated opponents Barnsley.

The Terriers will at least compete for a Premier League place via the play-offs, and could even steal an automatic promotion spot from Bournemouth if the Cherries slip up.

Barnsley, meanwhile, will join Derby in third tier, bottom of the Championship with 30 points from 42 games.

It marks a huge change in fortunes for both sides, with Huddersfield finishing two places from the relegation zone in 20th last season, while Barnsley finished fifth.

Expectations were low at the John Smith Stadium after last season’s relegation, but the club kept faith in Carlos Corberan and were rewarded.

The 39-year-old former assistant to Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds saw first-half goals from Jordan Rhodes and Harry Toffolo ensure their Premier League dreams could continue into March.

Callum Styles earned a superb consolation in stoppage time for the away side but it wasn’t enough to save Poya Asbaghi’s men.

Barnsley will return to League One, where they last played in the 2018/19 season, ahead of last campaign’s heights.

Things quickly went downhill for Barnsley after a blistering campaign last season

Valerien Ismael had taken the team to an astonishing finish in the play-offs after nearly being relegated from the Championship the previous season, and he was later snapped up by West Brom.

His replacement, Markus Schopp, only lasted until November, while Ismael didn’t fare much better with the Baggies, who were sacked in February before joining Besiktas.

Two other managers coached the Tykes to finish the season, but neither was able to make a difference enough to ensure the team’s survival.
