Playoff champions Huddersfield 11-8 to remain in Premier

Terriers triumph over Reading after penalty drama at Wembley

Jonathan Hogg celebrates Huddersfield's Premier League promotion
1 of 1

Huddersfield won a place in the Premier League for the first time after a dramatic penalty shootout success over Reading in the Sky Bet Championship playoff final at Wembley.

There was not much excitement in a goalless 120 minutes but all that changed in the shootout as Huddersfield ran out 4-3 victors with German centre-back Christopher Schindler slotting home the winning penalty.

David Wagner's side are the rank outsiders in the Premier League and 11-8 with bet365 to stay in the division at the first attempt.

The Terriers, in the top flight for the first time since 1972, are the only team to seal promotion from a Football League division with a negative regular-season goal difference.

Huddersfield are 11-10 with Betway to be relegated, while bet365 quote 25-1 that all three promoted clubs - Newcastle and Brighton went up automatically - finish in the bottom three next season.

Without wishing to put a dampener on Huddersfield's truly great story, Betway are likely to see plenty of interest in their 11-10 about Wagner's side going straight back down. Betway and Coral are both offering 3-1 that Town finish bottom. 

It was heartbreaking for Reading, who are 6-1 with Sky Bet to claim immediate compensation by gaining promotion to the Premier League next season. They are 25-1 to win the Championship.
