David Wagner guided Huddersfield Town to an extraordinary play-off win on Monday, marking a return to the top-flight of English football in 45 years and a first appearance in the Premier League for the club.
The game went to penalties after the match ended 0-0 after extra-time with the Terriers grabbing their place in the elite 4-3 on penalties.

"Experience is important, but if you have passion, desire and ideas, you can match it".

Reading manager Jaap Stam, who helped the club to third position in his first season in charge, felt his players did all they could to stand up to the pressure in the shoot-out.
