Huddersfield Town held on for a hard-fought win against West Bromwich Albion on an afternoon of high drama at the John Smith's Stadium.

After beating Manchester United, the 1-0 victory was the club's second successive top-flight home win for the first time since November 1971.

Yet it wasn't without controversy – Christopher Schindler sent off in the 57th minute for a second bookable offence after Rajiv van La Parra's thunderbolt had opened the scoring.
