Your comments:

great performance, we play much better with the ball on the ground, hopefully this is goodbye to hoofball, well done Mark Lillis. kev from lindley

Much better play from Town, Could have done with a few better passes in midfield, however they played well in defence. The referee didn't make many decisions in towns favour, but they finally got a win that they deserved! Well done! Laura, Huddersfield

An awesome performance by the Terriers. Best 90 minutes since we beat Wolves in October. Hunt has proved himself to be a future England right-back. James Robinson, Mirfield

Much better performances lately with the 4-1-3-2 diamond formation. The only drawback with it for me is we don't have wingers and it's relying on the fullbacks to get forward. We also lack pace until scannell comes on. But if this is the way to go to get points, so be it.
