Beckford, who is on loan from Leicester, made it four goals in three matches as Town scored three goals at home for the first time this season, James Vaughan also on target.

Robins said: "It was Premier League finishing from Jermaine. He has been unfortunate with injuries and he would be some player if you had him for 46 games a season.

"I love watching him. He is a master finisher and on his day he is unstoppable and unplayable.

"As a pair Vaughan and Beckford are as good as any in this league. James' work-rate is phenomenal and he doesn't let defenders rest.

"I can't expect any more. The performance was exactly what we needed and what we wanted.

"No team has gone down on 54 points but we still need points from our last two matches and it's still all to play for. It's been an incredible season."

Huddersfield go to bottom club Bristol City next week and Robins said: "Another three points and we should be over the line. Fortunately we don't need favours from anybody."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
