Instant Reactions - Huddersfield v Bournemouth (11/2/18)

Following today's clash between Huddersfield Town and Bournemouth, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Huddersfield Town hosted Bournemouth at the John Smith's Stadium for a 12pm kick off on Sunday February 11, with the hosts taking a four one victory.

Alex Pritchard gave Huddersfield the advantage seven minutes into the first half, but Bournemouth did level through Junior Stanislas in th 13th minute, but the hosts kept plugging away and saw further goals come from Steve Mounie an own goal and a late Rajiv van La Parra penalty.

The start of the day saw Huddersfield in the bottom three for the first time this season, but that didn't last long as they lifted themselves out again.

Speaking to the BBC's cameras a short time after match day referee Michael Oliver blew the final whistle, Huddersfield Town head coach David Wagner explained.

'It was a huge win for us. Now it's time to build up momentum against opponents which are in front of us, against whom we are more competitive. We said before the game that this is massive for us and that after losing at Old Trafford we had the difficult fixtures behind us. It was one of the performances of the season.'

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe in his comparative interview explained.

'I apologise to the fans for the performance. There's not much else I can say. When you're aware of the financial and time sacrifices that people make, you want to reward them with an inspiring performance, one that they can go away and talk about for many years. I don't think that will be happening after that.'
