Huddersfield Town 4, Bournemouth 1: Terriers end losing streak in style to boost survival hopes

Alex Pritchard got off the mark with his first goal for the club and Steve Mounie was also on target for the hosts, leaving Wagner hopeful that Huddersfield can now climb back up the table.

Bournemouth found their opponents even more hard to deal with after the break, only managing to stay within touching distance as a result of Huddersfield's profligacy.

Rajiv van la Parra tucked away a stoppage time penalty to complete a satisfying afternoon for David Wagner's side.

Despite the understandable lack of confidence that comes with losing five in a row, Huddersfield started brightly and broke the deadlock after seven minutes.

Callum Wilson leads the club with seven goals, while last season leading scorer Joshua King has three goals, including one last week against Stoke.

Eddie Howe's side responded promptly as Stanislas coolly picked out the bottom-right corner from 10 yards after Ryan Fraser's cross found its way past Florent Hadergjonaj.

The 27-year-old had his head in his hands as he left the turf at the John Smith's Stadium with reports suggesting the former Wanderers and Melbourne City linchpin had suffered a deep cut following a clash.

Mooy started the match as the Terriers romped home in the second half to get themselves out of the drop zone for the time being.

Huddersfield had further chances to put the game out of reach, most notably when Tom Ince headed over Mooy's cross from six yards. Instead Van la Parra took responsibility to stroke home.
