Stoke City began the New Year with a great display. The Potters returning home with the three points after goals from Sam Vokes, Nick Powell, Lee Gregory and two from Tyrese Campbell.
Despite going ahead, the Terriers came back to  lead early in the second period but Michael O’Neill’s side were relentless as they hunted down their opponents.
The Potters were first to show after a bright opening to the game when Vokes tapped City ahead.
A mix up in the Terriers defence gave Nick Powell time and space to pick his pass, and his low cross was coverted by the on rushing Welshman.
The home side came out on the front foot and Karlan Grant tested Butland for the first time in the match,from the resulting corner Munié rose highest to level.  With the Potters still asleep the Terriers completed the turnaround on 50 minutes when Bacuna’s free-kick went in off the shin of Batth and the comeback was complete.The response from O’Neill’s side was immediate however as Powell turned in Campbell’s low cross to restore parity once more. The  Potters were ahead once more just under 25 minutes remaining.
Martins Indi’s free-kick was only palmed away by Grabara who had come flying out of his goal, and Campbell returned it with interest to send the travelling Potters wild behind the goal.
City were starting to run away with the match when a long pass forward found Vokes’ head, and he found Campbell who finished superbly for his side’s fourth of the afternoon.
There was a little scare as Karlan Grant tested Butland with a free-kick, but the City stopper did well to turn his effort away from goal.
Gregory rounded off the scoring when he superbly placed the ball beyond the Huddersfield ‘keeper and the points were sealed for their return to Stoke in the final minute.
