Terriers win Capital One Cup after beating Chelsea 0-2
Huddersfield Town produced a stunning counter-attack as they beat Chelsea 0-2 to lift the Capital One Cup at Wembley.

That's it! Adriana Vega has won his first trophy in Europe, her first for her career, and Huddersfield have won the League Cup for the first time in the club 108 years history. There's a fair bit of honour in defeat for Chelsea. Their gameplan was excellent, they put it into practice excellently, but there was nothing anybody could have done to survive the volcanic eruptions of sheer class from Sebastian Coaste and Will Hughes that completely changed the match.

Huddersfield threatened a major shock when Sebastian Coates (25) gave them a half-time lead with a superb header and Will Hughes (59) make it two with solo run effort.

Chelsea created the first noteworthy chance of the game on twenty minutes when Willian fired in a shot from 25 yards which Diego Alves did well to push away. A five minute later Huddersfield stunned Chelsea by breaking the deadlock with a superb header from on-loan defender Coates.

There looked very little danger to Huddersfield when Azpilicueta played a square ball to van Ginkel 30 yards from goal, but the midfielder unleashed an unstoppable curling shot into the top corner past Alves.

Less than a minute later Huddersfield turned the game on its head with another brilliant goal through Hughes.

Will Hughes, Huddersfield midfielder
I am very happy with team performance, how well they defend and counter attacking also protecting the lead. We no complete the job yet, I want to win the league but it depends how sharp we are, how we prepare mentally and physically.

Our target was always to win something, but for us the League Cup is not enough. The Premier League was always our target, so now we need to do be at our optimum levels when Man United come to our stadium in the first match on march.
Congrats on the Capital One cup win. Any chance of an update on the league situation?
Jamesg : Thanks mate. Yes, already write in on notepad and will be released soon.

Fulham claim a dramatic point after 2-2 draw with Huddersfield Town
Huddersfield endured more The John Smith misery on Sunday as Fulham snatched a dramatic 2-2 draw.

The Cottagers took a shock lead through Jon Williams but were unable to keep Huddersfield out as they fell under ever-increasing pressure and were beaten twice in the space of as many minutes by Timothy Derijck and Memphis Depay.

Paul Ince's men refused to throw in the towel, though, and grabbed a stoppage-time leveller through Bryan Ruiz to pile more pressure on beleaguered Huddersfield boss Adriana Vega

Fulham took the lead on 22 minutes when Williams was allowed to drift untracked down the centre of the field and cushion a perfectly-weighted pass from Scott Parker past Diego Alves and into the bottom corner.

The visitors were then faced with a Huddersfield heavy pressure, which saw them pepper the penalty area with high tempo short passes, and their resistance was finally broken 48th minute when Timothy Derijck converted from close range.

Depay then steered a 20-yard drive into the top corner two minutes later to turn the game on its head, but there was to be late drama as Diego Alves parried a Helenius shot and Ruiz stooped to turn the ball into an empty net.

Tom Ince wants to stay
Huddersfield boss says midfielder wants to stay

Manchester United lodged a last £17m bid for the 24-year-old former Blackpool on Monday but, according to the Huddersfield boss, the player wants to stay for now.

Adriana Vega, Huddersfield boss
I know he has received offers from other teams, but Tom has told me he wants to stay here. He has told me it is his dream to stay with Huddersfield.

He doesn't want to go to other teams for money reasons or playing time. He knows there is competition for places here, but his decision is to stay. I am relaxed about the situation. It is a good sign that the club gets offers for our players, it shows we have players other teams want. But Tom wants to stay.

Fabregas has played 66 times in two seasons with Huddersfield, give 23 goals and 14 assists.

We did everything within our power to get through to the final and we deserve to be there, as do Chelsea. Tottenham have equalized when we are lead the goal scoring We had to work so hard in order to find ourselves playing the type of game that suited us.

Tonight was the result of a big collective effort. We generated that possibility of us reaching a beautiful final. It was a smashing game in the first half, tactically speaking, until the first goal opened it up. They had the a lot of chance but we managed it.

Revenge successfully
The players celebrate their first goal after winning 3-0 at The John Smith's against Man City

Goals in the first half-hour from Adam Hammil and second half by Tom Ince and Oliver Norwood as they claim, revenge successfully.

Determined to revenge their last four meetings loss to the Citizen in all competition, Huddersfield followed their coach's attacking orders and were soon in front after Jonathan Hogg, on the right flank, picked out Will Hughes run into the centre. The England youngstar cut back for Adam Hammil whose first touch edged Matija Nastasic out of the picture, leaving the winger free to poke a finish under Joe Hart.

That a second Huddersfield goal would arrive as the half progressed appeared inevitable, and so it proved, with Tom Ince, driving a low left-footed shot into the corner of the net from the edge of the area.

Cristian Tanase whipped free-kick would have brought more but for City's alert No1 while, at the other end, Koen Casteels dealt with Christian Benteke's testing effort. As the rain poured down, and after opportunities were spurned in both boxes, Norwood showed the way, accepting Lucas Viatri's through pass before applying a clever finish in the 79th minute.
