Super sub Michael Hefele helped Huddersfield Town ease into the fifth round of the FA Cup with a two-goal blast.

David Wagner's Championship side overcame a strong start by League One hosts Rochdale, doing it with the help of a debut goal by Collin Quaner and their first penalty since last March.

Izzy Brown put away the spot kick on 66 minutes after German striker Quaner netted just before the break.

Rochdale made a strong start and had two good chances before Town went ahead - Peter Vincenti headed narrowly over from close range and Ian Henderson shot just wide after rounding Town keeper Joel Coleman.

The home side were left to rue those misses when Quaner netted from Brown's pass.

Brown doubled the lead with a 66th-minute penalty after a foul on Town skipper Mark Hudson.

And Hefele, on as a half-time replacement for Elias Kachunga, made sure of success with a 72nd-minute header from fellow substitute Aaron Mooy's free-kick and an 85th-minute sidefooted finish from Quaner's pass.
