World News – GB – Stoke 4-3 Huddersfield: Potter’s triumph in the seven-goal thriller


. .

Tyrese Campbell scored a brace after an end-to-end game to reach Stoke within one point of the SkyBet Championship play-off positions against Huddersfield Town.

Five goals in a frantic 20-minute break in the first half ensured that both sides took the lead to return to the lead in an exciting match in dire weather conditions.

With the win, Michael O’Neills’ men climb to seventh place in the table, while the visitors, despite three goals in the bet365 stadium, climb to 16. Fall behind.

After a quiet opening for both sides, Huddersfield almost gave The Potters an early goal when veteran defender Richard Stearman passed the ball straight to Stoke playmaker Nick Powell 20 yards from goal.

Powell’s shot from the edge of the box was hardly a test for Terrier goalkeeper Joel Pereira. However, it was a sign of the upcoming action.

After 25 minutes the game exploded and it was the visitors who made the breakthrough. The impressive Carel Eiting met Harry Toffolo to make it 1-0 after a good job on the Huddersfield.

The lead didn’t last long, however, as the home team equalized within five minutes.

Sam Clucas drifted with a free kick from the left, which Scottish striker Steven Fletcher nodded to the penalty spot where Tyrese Campbell was lurking. Campbell scored a powerful right-footed shot for his fifth goal of the season.

Three minutes later, Campbell struck again. Terrier captain Jonathon Hogg was stripped of the ball by the incriminating Powell. He found Fletcher pushing Campbell a concise ball down the inner left channel. His vigorous effort went through the goalkeeper’s legs to put The Potters in the lead.

Stoke didn’t have much time to celebrate, but when Eiting played a clever ball behind the Stoke defense seven minutes later to find Isaac Mbenza in space, he drilled his first shot over the onrushing Josef Bursik to make the tie then equalize 40 minutes.

Another drama followed before halftime when Huddersfield passed the ball behind. Stoke’s oppressive front line forced goalkeeper Pereira into a poor pass that found Campbell on the edge of the box. He turned his chipped flank into his own net. Richard Stearman gives The Potters the lead during the break.

After a frenzied end of the first half, it took 12 minutes of the second to score another goal. This time the home team extended their lead.

Returning Stoke captain Clucas picked up the ball at the corner of the penalty area and ran to defend Huddersfield after Clucas’ skillful footwork fired a stake driver with his left foot past the helpless Pereira to make it 4-2.

It wasn’t long before visitors replied again. Two minutes later, Mbenza’s free-kick found towering central defender Naby Sarr unmarked in the Stoke box, his header giving Bursik no chance and bringing The Terriers back into play.

The game had scored seven goals in a frenzied 60 minutes, but Huddersfield shouldn’t equalize in the next 30 minutes.

Both sides used the new five substitution rule to refresh some tired legs late in the game, but The Potters held onto an important win.

Stoke and Huddersfield seem to be enjoying scoring goals against each other. The last two games between the teams have scored a staggering 14 goals: nine for The Potters and five for The Terriers.

While Stoke took all three points from that game and continued their impressive start to the season, Huddersfield has shown that they are capable of scoring goals outside of their home country and were unlucky to lose the game.

The 20-year-old striker continues his striking start to the season and scores his fifth and sixth goals of the season. His straight run and precise finish caused again problems for the defenders of the championship and will surely attract the attention of the Premier League scouts.

Stoke: Bursik, Smith, Batth, Souttar, Fox, Mikel, Clucas, Powell (from 85), Brown (from 66), Campbell (from 85), Fletcher (from 73).

Huddersfield: Pereira, Duhaney (from 59), Stearman, Sarr, Toffolo, Eiting, Hogg (from 87), O’Brien, Mbenza (from 87), Campbell, Koroma (from 59).
