Two-goal Mounie helps Huddersfield to shock win at Palace

Football: Huddersfield's Hudson retires, joins coaching staff

Hands up, who thought they'd ever see Huddersfield Town sat atop the pyramid of English football?

Tom Ince, the only player in the Huddersfield starting XI with Premier League experience, saw a right-wing cross fall to him inside two minutes, but could only direct his half-volley straight at Wayne Hennessey.

The pressing system that proved so key to their success in the Championship meant Palace were hassled and harried out of their stride, particularly in the first half. I am sure there will be more pundits who have their opinions on what clubs will do and how they will play.

Twelve months ago on the eve of the new Championship season Holloway, then working as a pundit for Sky Sports, tipped the Terriers to finish second bottom and be relegated to League One.

Huddersfield Town's last top-flight match was in April 1972 and also away at Crystal Palace, a 0-0 draw.

Cristopher Schindler flicked Aaron Mooy's corner to the far post, where Mathias Jorgensen's off-target effort found the net via the unfortunate Ward.

It didn't take long for Huddersfield to double their advantage.

Welcome to the @premierleague, Steve Mounié!

Jairo Riedewald, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Timothy Fosu-Mensah have all recently arrived at Selhurst Park and it has been confirmed all three have been included in the matchday squad for the visit of the Terriers. "Hudson's exact role in the coaching setup will be defined soon and in the interim, he will support the preparations and training for Town's Premier League debut in 2017/18 alongside Wagner and the technical staff". "The Premier League is a great competition to be involved in and it is a great opportunity to be working under Frank de Boer once again having been with him at Ajax".
