"For sure we will be the biggest underdog next year, but that could also be our biggest strength and we can draw on that".
This confirmed a seriously impressive season for Huddersfield, who will be heavily fancied to go down next season.
The German has guided Town to the top flight in his first full season and joyous fans lapped it up as he stole the microphone off club compere Paul Ramsden to lead the chorus of club songs.
After helping Huddersfield secure promotion, Australia worldwide Mooy, 26, will be aiming to take the next step in his career by playing in the Premier League next season.
"I've told them to not talk to me until the end of the season".
Liam Moore and Jordan Obita, two of Reading's best performers this season, missed their penalties before Huddersfield's Christopher Schindler slotted in the winning spot-kick.
"The financial prize for Reading or Huddersfield, and Brighton, becomes at least £290m if the promoted club survives the first season in the Premier League".
Huddersfield Town's manager David Wagner praised the chairman after the game: "I have to give credit to everyone, especially the chairman who backed all our ideas over the last 18 months and every single employer of Huddersfield Town, they have invested so much into our club".
"I am so happy because when I arrived, people said I had no experience, no experience of British football, no experience of players - I always had to fight against that", Wagner said.
"They will have a de-brief on Tuesday, as I understand it, but that's football I'm afraid".
However, Huddersfield have a pretty serious grudge towards Holloway as he tipped them for relegation this season.
From that 19th-place finish, Wagner worked wonders on one of the smallest budgets in the division - signing many players on loan and from Germany - as the Terriers achieved what few thought possible.
"A lot of the pundits wrote us off before the season", said the 45-year-old German-born former United States global.
"Experience is important, but if you have passion behind an idea, you can match it".
