Brad Potts, Ched Evans and Scott Sinclair scored the goals, the first time North End have scored three in a game for more than two months. Here are the PNE player ratings from the Champiosnhip clash.
1. Daniel Iversen 8
The PNE keeper saved well from Mbenza, O'Brien and Bacuna in the first half on his way to a deserved clean sheet.
2. Sepp van den Berg 7
Another decent display at right-back for the Dutch teenager. Started to gain the confidence to push forward too.
3. Jordan Storey 7
Got to grips with Huddersfield's attack as the first half went on and was comfortable in the second half as North End got on the front foot.

4. Andrew Hughes 7
Got the benefit of the doubt with a a penalty call in the first half but otherwise solid and won his headers. A second clean sheet in a row with the Welshman playing in the middle.
