HUDDERSFIELD Town recorded their biggest home league victory for four years, as they defeated Chester City 4-1 in emphatic style.
A dominant performance was capped by two goals either side of half-time, while their superiority could have brought more goals.
With Eoin Hand’s side finishing just four points off the play-off spots, this performance showed what the Leeds Road side were capable of on their day.
Mick Byrne opened the scoring in the 28th minute after Chris Hutchings, Craig Maskell and Keith Edwards had all gone close.
And it was Edwards who threaded the ball through to Byrne who finished coolly.
Town continued to control the game, searching for the second goal that their play deserved.
And they got it just a minute before the break.
A long clearance clipped off the head of defender Chris Lightfoot, and Maskell pounced, rounding the keeper for his 21st goal of the season.
If Chester thought Town would take their foot off the gas in the second-half they were wrong.
It took the home side just four mintues to add their third.
Clever play on the left-wing from Hutchings allowed Edwards to meet his cross with a diving header.
A two-year low Leeds Road crowd of 3,514 were being treated to some fantastic football by the home side.
O’Regan, Edwards and Andy May all came within inches of adding a fourth.
However, Town did eventually grab a fourth when David Reeves scooped the ball past his own keeper.
The 87th-minute goal completed the rout, and left Hand with a positive result to build on for next season.
