Following a 1-0 victory over Luton Town on Monday night, Huddersfield Town have booked themselves a place at Wembley for a battle to gain promotion to the top flight.

Although Huddersfield have played in the Premier League in their recent history, since their relegation in 2018-19 season they have come close to a subsequent relegation in the Championship in both the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons.

Their transformation under the management of Carlos Corberan has been brilliant and the fact they are now 90 minutes away from Premier League football again is a sign of their progress.

The Huddersfield boss feels as though the fans are deserving of this, as he told The Yorkshire Post: “In three seasons, they have suffered a lot, so there is nothing that can make me feel more proud to win this game [Monday’s] than to watch how much they enjoyed it with the team and [we] give positive news to our fans.

“It was my target on the first day I arrived at Huddersfield.

“Unfortunately, I could not do it last season and I am happy to help that identify and enjoy things with the team [this year].”

It’s not just the fans Corberan is pleased for, though, as he spoke of his delight saying: “First of all, I am very pleased that the players are going to live this type of moment. Secondly, I have full motivation to play in big games and there cannot be a bigger game than this next one.

“In my mind as soon as the [Luton] game ended, I was thinking about how we prepare for this game [the final].

“But now is the moment to relax to take time and analyse how we will try to perform.”

The Verdict:

Carlos Corberan deserves a lot of credit for the work he has done at Huddersfield and the progress he has made with the team.

They are now only 90 minutes away from Wembley and although it will be a tough game against Nottingham Forest, the Terriers will be hoping it’s them who come out on top.

Furthermore, they will no doubt be using the importance of the occasion for everyone at the club as the motivation to push them on to achieve their aims in the final.
