Grayson could not watch penalties

Published Add your comment

Huddersfield manager Simon Grayson did not watch any of the 22 nerve-shredding penalties which eventually saw his side secure promotion back to the npower Championship.

Town missed their first three spot-kicks but still won a dramatic shoot-out 8-7 against Sheffield United after a goalless 120 minutes at Wembley.

Grayson said: "I couldn't affect anything so I just sat down on the bench next to my chairman, I didn't watch any of them. I could tell by the crowd what was happening, basically we just had a laugh and a joke about what was going to happen. It's down to the players. Sometimes it's written in the stars, you get your bit of luck and we managed to do that."
