Keeper Danny Ward, on loan from Liverpool, saved from Sam Hutchinson and Fernando Forestieri to give Huddersfield a 4-3 win in the shootout after the match had finished 1-1 after extra time and by the same score on aggregate.

Huddersfield will face Reading in the Wembley final to decide which club joins Newcastle United and Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League.

Steven Fletcher had headed Wednesday ahead from Barry Bannan's cross, but Huddersfield drew level when Nahki Wells found the net via a deflection from Tom Lees.
