JACK HUNT hailed a “massive” win against Wolves as Huddersfield Town bounced back after two below-par Championship displays on home territory.
“The tempo wasn’t right against Watford or Leicester, although in the majority of games this season it has been,” said the right-back.
“I thought we started this game extremely well – we could have had four or five at half-time.
“Wolves are a big club – one of the favourites for the title – and we’re delighted to get the three points.”
While Town controlled the first half, when Hunt supplied the cross for James Vaughan’s opener and Jermaine Beckford doubled the lead, Wolves came right back into it after reducing the arrears in the 63rd minute.
“We stood the test well in the second half,” added Hunt.
“I thought their goal had a touch of luck about it. I thought I’d stopped the cross, but (Bakary) Sako squeezed it through my legs and then (Sylvan) Ebanks-Blake hit it against Pete Clarke before it went in – I don’t think you’ll see too many like that this season.
“After that they had a couple of moments, as they will do when they’re chucking bodies forward, but we did really well and withstood the pressure.”

Hunt also hailed the Town support in a 16,401 crowd, the best at home since 17.185 watched the visit of Sheffield Wednesday in April.
“The crowd were like a 12th man, they really got us going,” he added.
“They got behind us and stayed with us when we conceded, so it’s great we could get the result for them.”
