Feb 11 (Reuters) - Huddersfield Town snapped a five-match losing sequence to beat Bournemouth 4-1 and move out of the Premier League’s relegation zone on Sunday.

Goals by Beninese striker Steve Mounie either side of halftime put Huddersfield into a deserved two-goal lead after Bournemouth’s Junior Stanislas had cancelled out Alex Pritchard’s early strike for the hosts with a precise finish.

Mounie headed in Aaron Mooy’s free kick in the 27th minute to put the hosts back in front and Mounie struck again in the 66th minute with a superb finish after more good work by Mooy.

Rajiv van la Parra tucked away a stoppage time penalty to complete a satisfying afternoon for David Wagner’s side.

Victory did come at a cost for Huddersfield with Australian midfielder Mooy leaving the pitch on a stretcher in the second half after a clash of knees. (Reporting by Martyn Herman; editing by Clare Lovell)
