13. VAN LA PARRA, MAGNIFICENT!

Despite struggling on their travels, Town had amassed 8 early points at home including an impressive win over Manchester Utd. Town smarting from a hiding and poor performance at Liverpool the week before were looking to beat a side classed as "in and around them" for the first time since August, and West Brom provided the perfect test. Despite losing Christopher Schindler to a harsh red card, Town clung on to take the 3 points courtesy of a goal of the season contender from Rajiv Van La Parra. The Dutchman had lined up the same shot, at the same end around 23 times in the previous season and had put the ball 3 yards wide of the angle every time. Practice made perfect on the 4th of November.

12. Good things come to those who wa(i)tford

"Quaner shoots, Kachunga scooooooooores!"

Without an away win in 4 months, and on the back of 5 comprehensive away defeats, Town travelled to Vicarage Road as rank outsiders as Watford looked to build on their impressive early season form. The Terriers though bucked their recent pedestrian away style and came out of the blocks like greyhounds. Aaron Mooy orchestrated the game from midfield as he scored twice to add to goals from Kachunga and Depoitre which sealed a memorable away day. The game was made even better by a rousing vocal following that was fitting of such a scoreline.   


11. Izzy secures Towns first ever championship playoff qualification.

"Mooy finds Brown, Brown's shot... GOAL HUDDERSFIELD TOWN!"

Town were like an express train in February, a sleeper in March but had hit the buffers by April. A small squad was now looking worn and torn and like a wounded foot soldier were trying to limp towards the safety of the playoffs. Having had Newcastle worried weeks earlier, Town now were nervously looking over their shoulders. A win at Molineux would secure our first ever Championship playoff campaign. In a bitty encounter, Izzy Brown whipped the ball at goal which young Wolves keeper Harry Burgoyne flapped at and the deal was sealed. History made.

10. lEAGUE lEADERS lEATHERED

Automatic chasing Brighton swaggered into Town looking to go 4 points clear at the top of The Championship. As the SKY cameras amassed, the majority of the focus was on the form team from the south coast. However much to the chagrin of the media, Town blitzed Brighton in a rampant first half display. A controlled 2nd half completed Town's best home performance of the 2016/17 season and The Seagulls were sent back down south without so much as a breadcrumb of comfort.
