Huddersfield Town took apart a hapless Charlton Athletic side in a 5-0 hammering on Tuesday night, leaving the Addicks staring relegation from the Championship in the face.
The Terriers are now ten points clear of the relegation zone after this fine win, and now have decent buffer between them and the bottom thee.
Charlton never really threatened the home side and found themselves two nil down at half time, the goals scored by Hudson and Wells respectively, effectively ending the game at the interval.
After the restart, Huddersfield carried on where they left off and completely dominated a woeful Charlton team adding three more goals to heap on the misery for the visitors.
Charlton look like a beaten side and even though they are just three points behind MK Dons, it’s hard to see them surviving the battle to avoid the drop.
Here are THREE things we learned from Huddersfield 5-0 thrashing of Charlton……
1) Charlton Look Doomed
Playing like this they would struggle at the bottom of League One, however they are still in the Championship, but only just and not for long.
They looked for all intensive purposes a team that had given up, there was no fight from the players at all.
It’s hard to envisage seeing them put enough results together to stay up – if they are not careful they could free fall all the way down to League Two.
2) Huddersfield can start thinking about next season
The Terriers played well, and although not mathematically safe they have enough of a buffer to start planning for the next campaign, and decide what they want to achieve next season.
There is definitely three worse teams than Huddersfield, in Charlton, MK Dons , Rotherham and Bolton.
Life goes on for the Terriers in the Championship.
3) Nahki Wells could do a job in the top flight.
Wells got his tenth goal of the season last night, his fifth goal in as many games, and has hit a rich vein of form.
The Bermudan striker has certainly caught the eye this season with his performance for Huddersfield, and has got the talent to play at a higher level than the Championship.
If a Premier League team came in for him, it could be difficult for the Terriers to keep hold of him.
