Matty Pearson was the nemesis for Burnley once again as Huddersfield produced one of the comeback football scores of the weekend in the FA Cup. Jay Rodriguez opened the scoring for the Premier League side in the 28th minute before Josh Koroma equalized for the visitors in the 74th minute. Just as the tie was heading for extra-time, Pearson scored with three minutes of regulation time left to put the Championship club into the fourth round for the first time since 2018.
Burnley assistant manager Ian Woan: “We need wins to bring a bit of a smile to the lads’ faces. They feed off wins. That’s what football is all about. The win today was needed. We planned really diligently and put out the strongest 11 possible. It’s very disappointing. Huddersfield came out strong in the second half but the game should have been all over at half-time. If there had just been a little bit more belief it could have been all over.”
Huddersfield manager Carlos Corberan: “What is special is to be seven games without losing, but I cannot talk about the future. To go seven games without losing means the players are playing really well. What I want to see is my team competing well and the challenge is to keep playing well. As soon as you are on the pitch, you are not thinking about them being a Premier League team or a Championship team. You are thinking about the situations and how you can solve them.”
