Huddersfield Town earned a superb three points over West Bromwich Albion at the John Smith's Stadium today.
The Terriers dominated the opening period and were ahead on the half time whistle as Rajiv Van La Parra curled a stunning shot into the top corner, leaving Ben Foster static in the West Brom goal.
But it wasn't all plain-sailing for the Terriers as Christopher Schindler was sent off in the second half for a second bookable offence.
There was no complains from the German for his second card, although he received a first yellow after Hal Robson-Kanu looked to have fouled him.
Here we'll get David Wagner's take on that incident as well as the win, and also hear from Tony Pulis, who cut an image of a man under pressure during the second half shut out.
That’s everything from David Wagner and that brings the post-match press conference to an end.
On home support
We have one of the best - if not the best - home support in the Premier League at the minute.
As long as this home crowd supports this group as well as they have in the past, we have every chance against every opponent at home to be competitive.
On point total
We arrived in the Premier League so far.
15 points after 11 games is very good, but it’s only 11 games.
This day is too great to discuss a referee’s decisions even though I don’t think the first one was a foul or a yellow.
For 80-85 minutes he didn’t really have anything to save, but then he was there for these two world class saves.
This is now the fifth clean sheet he conceded and an important one because they are three massive points for us.
Van La Parra
He for sure adapted.
Scored his first Premier League goal - a wonderful one.
He worked very well in the defence and had some great moments in the offence too.
In the last two minutes Jonas Lossl made two world class saves.
We are all together over the moon, ot only because of the result but the performance as well.
We showed our identity and we were very aggressive.
We controlled the game for 60 minutes and scored a wonderful goal through Rajiv Van La Parra.
Here comes the Town head coach.
Short and sweet from the Albion boss - didn’t even sit down!
There was times where we had people spare but we didn’t pick them out.
It was just a lack of quality.
On John Smith's Stadium
This place was absolutely rocking.
Everyone was as one. It makes a massive difference.
The club is in a better position now than when I joined.
No, I won’t criticise the players. They’ve been fantastic and they’re a great group of lads.
We lacked that little bit of quality at times, but the keeper has made to grat saves.
The kid scores a wondergoal.
It was absolutely fantastic.
It was just a wonderful strike.
The West Brom manager to go first...
Still waiting for the bosses.
Issues to be addressed
Not too much to assess today after the teams’ performance, but Wagner will likely be quizzed on:
- Schindler’s red card
- The performances of the officials
- His teams’ unbelievable work ethic
- Rajiv Van La Parra’s wondergoal
We’re in place at the John Smith’ Stadium for David Wagner and Tony Pulis’ post-match press conferences.
