Huddersfield Town 5-1 Yeovil Town
Danny Ward scored twice and made another two as Huddersfield romped to their first win in five games, a 5-1 thrashing of Yeovil.
The Terriers trailed early on when Yeovil's Ishmael Miller fired in from close range following a corner.
But Ward crossed for Adam Clayton to tap in, before another centre found Martin Paterson to give Town the lead.
Joel Lynch's header made it 3-1 before the break and Ward made it a convincing victory with two long-range strikes.
First, Ward cut inside from Oliver Norwood's pass and lashed in a 20-yard drive. Three minutes later, Norwood created another opening for Ward, who blasted past Yeovil goalkeeper Chris Dunn, who replaced Marek Stech at half-time.
Victory means that Huddersfield are now five points from the Championship play-off places, while Yeovil remain second from bottom, four points from safety.
Yeovil, who were seeking only a fifth league win, looked comfortable early on, despite the Terriers dominating possession.
And the Glovers could have been in front before Miller scored when home goalkeeper Alex Smithies made a mess of an attempted clearance. Miller was denied by a goal-saving block from Joel Lynch.
Huddersfield responded to the opener and led 3-1 at the break.
Yeovil were hit when Ed Upson had to go off in the first half with an injury, but came out strongly after the break, though they could not stem Ward's influence as Huddersfield equalled their biggest win of the season.
Huddersfield boss Mark Robins:
"We did well today and the lads deserve massive credit.
"We scored five but I think we were good value for more. We have a healthy points tally but our first target has to be 54 points, then we can see where we are.
"The players are enjoying themselves and so are the supporters. This is a healthy club but it's still early days for us."
Yeovil boss Gary Johnson:
"We were very poor in the first half and a bit weak.
"We had words at half-time and we came out and created three or four chances early in the second half but we weren't good enough to take them.
"We only have to be better than three other teams in this division, and one of them isn't Huddersfield.
"At this stage a manager looks at it and sees which players can cut it and which can't. Some big decisions have to be made. I have given the players every chance to show they are capable at Championship level.
"At 5-1 you can scream and shout but maybe it's time to make a few changes."
