Huddersfield   0 - 2   West Brom

West Brom edged past Huddersfield and into the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The match looked to be heading for a replay before Graham Dorrans latched on to Youssouf Mulumbu's pass to smash past Alex Smithies on 77 minutes.

Mulumbu was also the architect of West Brom's second late on, setting up young New Zealander Chris Wood for only his second senior goal.

Gary Roberts missed a good chance for the hosts but the Baggies were well worth their place in the next round.

It was Dorrans who should have handed Albion the lead after 14 minutes when he met Chris Brunt's cross from only six yards out but the Scotland international could only volley over the bar.

Brunt fired over from 20 yards just before the half-hour mark following some neat build-up play but the Terriers, in contrast, were giving the ball away far too regularly.

The home side started the second half in a much more positive manner, with Antony Kay heading Anthony Pilkington's cross wide after just 59 seconds.

But the Baggies soon proved their class again as Slovakia international Marek Cech turned on the edge of the area and fired a left-footed effort against a post.

Huddersfield enjoyed their best chance when Jordan Rhodes squared for Roberts but the midfielder could only fire at Scott Carson from about eight yards out.

Roberts then forced a routine save from Carson as the hosts started to pose more of a threat but it was Albion who finally broke the deadlock on the counter-attack.

Town gave the ball away and the visitors broke in numbers and when Mulumbu found Dorrans, the Scot coolly slotted home from 12 yards.

The clash was then put beyond any doubt in the 82nd minute when Wood converted a second from the middle of the area following another assist by Mulumbu.


Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:

"We started the game brightly but, after that, we showed them too much respect and let them play too much by standing off them.

"In the second half we were much better and they scored their first goal when we were actually on top.

"But again that's come from our error and it's crazy we keep saying the same things about that. We have to improve there.

"Our decision-making is not good sometimes and you will get punished and we were today against such a good team."
