Goodbye!

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Thank you for joining us on the live blog today. That had all the classic components of a derby, and was a tasty encounter between two sides who will most likely be in the top six come the end of the season. 

Goals, late drama, brawls - phew. We're all spent. Join us on Saturday, when Leeds United host Cardiff. 

KYLE BARTLEY: New signings bring the competition back

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Kyle Bartley
PA

We're just taking every game as it comes and we can't look too far ahead. We prepare well and try and get the three points as they come.

Mo Barrow is very direct - he has great pace, is electric and can have a massive impact. It gives us a bit more strength in depth and we have young boys in the team, but we can't be relying on them every week. It brings a bit of freshness and brings the competition back. 

KYLE BARTLEY: We didn't play well

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Kyle Bartley
PA

We are disappointed but we've taken disappointments before, always been able to bounce back. We're strong and we'll pick ourselves up to try get the three points on Saturday. 

I didn't think we played very well - they were the better team. But we've had games before where we didn't play well and we dug in and got a point. I thought that wouldn happen towards the end but we never seemed to be able to break their lines.

For me, their manager has lacked a bit of class and caused the chaos that happened. I said to him that he should have showed more respect to us, to his players and to football - football is a game of respect. 

Town changes key

Matt Glennon, Huddersfield Town summariser for BBC Leeds

I think it was the forced change in Palmer and Brown that changed the game - Brown was so effective. Quaner got lost towards the end, as did Van La Parra, and Wells countered that. 

Where do Leeds go from here?

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

We didn't create enough, didn't get into that final third - we didn't rival the amount Town created. We gave the ball away too often and didn't dominate in the midfield in the second half. 

Huddersfield moved it quickly and got into dangerous areas with the kind of play they've delivered all season. Leeds waned and Town gained the territorial advantage, winning the 50-50s.

More on Wagner's celebration

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Gareth Jones

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

We know how passionate these two managers are and how similar they are in their beliefs - but fans do want to see passion from their managers. Monk and Wagner haven't conducted themselves in the best way and I think they will be disappointed when they see the footage again, as they were both as bad as each other, but fans want to see that kind of happiness. 

GARRY MONK on David Wagner brawl

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Garry Monk
PA

The only thing I'll say is I've been brought up with the values of having humility, having respect and having class. I don't stand for [a violation of] that, ever. They're the values I hold my team to and if someone else goes against those values, I think it's wrong. Those are the values I hold dearly and he can answer his own actions. But those are the values I hold myself to.

Garry MonkLeeds United Head Coach

GARRY MONK: My players deserved more

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Garry Monk
PA

I really felt for my players - they didn't deserve that at all. We were very committed, followed a good game plan and our performance deserved something more than that result. That performance and that commitment deserved much more. But that doesn't change anything for us - we'll show the same fight and spirit and put our football on the pitch.

I didn't think they were really great chances for them. They scored the two goals and it's a bitter pill to swallow, to be honest. we disrupted them and didn't allow them too much time on the ball. 

They were very open for the counter and we didn't quite use the ball well enough to get in positions and find those passes, but I thought my players were committed and deserve more than what they got.

Leeds didn't help themselves

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

You can't carry players against quality sides - I just think we don't help ourselves, sometimes. We give away too many slack passes. 

Wagner: right or wrong?

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

There are ways of celebrating. If you want to do it, do it with your fans. Don't run across the other manager - that's just disrespectful. 

Wagner: right or wrong?

Matt Glennon, Huddersfield Town summariser for BBC Leeds

It will deal with itself, what happened between the two managers. The point is it's a a great derby. I can understand why Wagner wants to celebrate with his players and he should be allowed - but you can understand why Monk is angry. His team have conceded a last-minute winner and then the other manager is running across him - it's not what he wants to see, but Monk should have just gritted his teeth and walked away. 

DAVID WAGNER on Garry Monk brawl

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

David Wagner
PA

I celebrated with my players in the corner and wanted to go back into the technical area. Garry tried to nudge me and I think this is just not OK. Then I wanted to speak with him but this wasn't possible in this moment - and then there were a lot of people around us and we both had to go to the stands. For me, it isn't problem - it;'s part of the emotion. I understood that in this British football culture, it seems to be disrespectful if I celebrate with my players - it's different in Germany, but I have to accept it.

David WagnerHuddersfield Town Head Coach

DAVID WAGNER: The better team won

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

David Wagner
PA

The mood is fantastic. Everybody has a smile on their face and is happy about this afternoon that we were able to celebrate and enjoy together. This was the next level in terms of the atmosphere and the energy from the stands. What the players did todsy, after Thurday - I'm delighted. It was a great football match, energetic, exciting, high-speed, battles all over the grass - the better team won today. 

We created more opportunities and better opportunities. It was ncie to see they trusted and believed the whole time, even when they missed opportunities, that they were able to win this match. 

Brown was outstanding with the workload he brought onto the pitch. The winner was a great moment - maybe not the nicest goal we will score this season, but one of the most emotional. If you score the winner in this big, big match shortly before the final whistle - there are emotions all over the pitch. 

Doukara's off-day decisive

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Sacko can blow hot and cold, as can Doukara - you don't know which one is going to turn up. Doukara won some headers, took people on, linked-up well at times - but he didn't do it enough. Barrow might have been a better choice but they didn't use him enough. 

Brown did well

Matt Glennon, Huddersfield Town summariser for BBC Leeds

Brown rides the challenges a lot better than Palmer. Palmer is a good player but he was a bit off the pace today. Brown doesn't give the ball away and wants the ball all the time - you can see his confidence in his body language. 

Brown was impressive

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

I think he gave Town a bit more physicality and invention. he is good on the air and on the deck and he is very intelligent - his Chelsea pedigree is obvious. His goal and the timing of his run was great. He came on and got straight into the game. He trusts his ability. Huddersfield play with an intensity and he's a perfect fit for that. 

MICHAEL HEFELE: I was nearly crying

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Michael Hefele
PA

That was a very lovely Sunday - it is like a story in a book or a film. I'm so proud of the team. We played such good football and showed England we are a very strong team. We were very aggressive, and we have a brilliant team spirit - that's the most important thing. 

I always dream about the big games to make the difference and help my team - I was just so, so unbelievably happy when the ball came to me. I just thought, you just have to concentrate and sink it in. It was so emotional - I was starting a little bit to cry. It was a dream to get this little trophy - all the boys said I couldn't get this - but I'm just so proud of this very, very, very good team.

Leeds are a strong side - that is why they are where they are in the table, in the top six. But in such games, there are just details that make the difference. We made the details right and we believe in us - I think, all in all, it was a deserved win for Huddersfield Town.     

Noel's reaction

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

We never got near Brown, Lolley linked up play, Kachunga was dangerous - we could't match them and Town won every second ball. They won ball after ball and we couldn't stop them. 

The first 50 minutes, I thought Vieira was excellent - and when that intensity drops off, it's hard.

More reaction to come

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

22,400 here today - including 1,958 Leeds fans. They say it's the derby that always delivers for a reason - and that's why. A last-minute winner, a brawl, both head coaches sent to the stand... Mad. Stay with us for more reaction. 

Leeds in a rough patch

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Adam Pope

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

I was disappointed Leeds didn't release Mo Barrow enough. I think, if any team did deserve to win it, it was Town, but I do think Leeds did enough for a point. 

Leeds are going through a tough moment at present. They're having to grind stuff out a lot more than they have before.

What went wrong for Leeds?

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

We dropped the pace, dropped the intensity and they upped their game to a level we couldn't match. When we had the opportunity to turn and attack them, we just couldn't find that one, good pass - we kept giving it away. They put the pressure on and were turning and driving into our box too easily sometimes.

A historic day

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Paul Ogden

BBC Sport

Town have leapfrogged Leeds United into fourth with just 16 matches left to play for Town, and 15 for Leeds. Leeds are down to fifth. After a tight, hard-fought derby, Town edged it, with the hero a boy who holds cult hero status around Huddersfield. 

Those are three precious, precious points, and the celebrations will live long in the memory. The winner was an unforgettable moment in Town history, to say nothing of the two head coaches squaring up afterwards. I think these two sides might end up meeting again this season. 

This is the first time since 2009 that Town have done the double over Leeds and won three in a row against them.

Caution for Nahki Wells - handball, we reckon.

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

You think about the second half chances Town have had - but it is hard to take. Leeds haven't been at it as they have been before, but they started the better side. They really struggled to command the second half after 20 minutes, so it's disappointing. 

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Pedraza rounds Schindler but Town have a free kick for a handball and a foul from O'Kane. 

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Mooy stabs the ball across the park and Pedraza wins it back. His shot is on target but hits Kachunga, who battles well with the Leeds man as they try to scamper away. The ball rolls back into the arms of Rob Green. 

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Matt Glennon, Huddersfield Town summariser for BBC Leeds

You can get frustrated about offside but you have to follow your runners - do that, and there is nothing they can do. 

There is only one quiet section of the ground now - a riveting atmosphere.

BreakingFOUR ADDED MINUTES

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds

Confrontation on the halfway line - David Wagner is celebrating with his team, Garry Monk reacts and IT. ALL. GOES. OFF. That's probably overselling it slightly, but still. Monk may have stepped in Wagner's way - Leeds are claiming offside for Hefele's goal, so are not happy, and both bosses are sent to the stand in the aftermath. Wouldn't be derby day without it, eh? 

GOAL: HUDDERSFIELD 2-1 LEEDS - HEFELE

It had to be the cult hero! Wells' free kick bounces off the wall and Bartley clears. Mooy hits it and Hefele meets the defelection.

Huddersfield 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Leeds are just dwelling on the ball a bit too much. Pedraza - I know he is new to the division, but he needs to know you won't get things for going down like that in this kind of game, when there is so much at stake.

Huddersfield 1-1 Leeds

Hogg robs Pedraza as the derby grinds up a gear - some heavy challenges going in here. Challenge on Bridcutt from Hogg hands Leeds a free kick and Hogg squares up to Vieira. 

The crossfield ball finds Pedraza, but he won't get a penalty as he goes down in the box. Town have a free kick from the edge of the Leeds box as Kachunga invites the foul. 

Huddersfield 1-1 Leeds

Matt Glennon, Huddersfield Town summariser for BBC Leeds

There are three Leeds players on Brown every time he gets the ball - they know how dangerous he is, but that should leave some space on the rest of the pitch. Kachunga has had a quiet last ten minutes, and I'd like to see more from him. 

Huddersfield 1-1 Leeds

Town free kick as Berardi is heavy in the challenge. Hefele floats it in but Leeds clear. Hogg tries to find Lolley but Jansson meets Brown's arcing cross, and it goes out for a Leeds throw.

That is poor defending and a dangerous ball - Green can do nothing about the cross. You cannot allow yourself to be turned like that. 

Huddersfield 1-1 Leeds

Mooy's right hooded ball is headed away - just - by Bartley. Schindler plays it across ball as he turns Ayling - and Kachunga fluffs his lines in the box as his shot runs wide.
