Worryingly for the Terriers, the result saw their goal difference take a battering, and that could prove costly if they're dragged further into the relegation battle over the course of their final seven matches of the season.
Speaking after the game, a crestfallen Carlos Corberan took the blame for his side's display, and admitted: "We feel so sorry for our people - all the staff, all the players do - because we are embarrassed by the performance and the result.
“We cannot just forget this match and move on to the next one straight away. We need to feel the pain of this defeat, just like our supporters. They were too much better than us and we just didn’t have the answers.
“I must take responsibility as head coach - the plan I had for this match didn’t work, the ideas I gave to the players didn’t work. Literally everything went wrong.”
