Nahki Wells provided admirer Kenny Jackett with a reminder of his goal-poaching prowess by clinching Huddersfield Town’s 1-0 win over Wolves.
Molineux manager Jackett, reportedly interested in the Bermudian during the January transfer window, could only watch in anguish as Wells’ 79th-minute strike made it two victories running for Town and six games without a win for the visitors.
It was a third goal in four games for Town’s top scorer, who now has 13 for the season.
Head coach David Wagner, whose side are 15th in the Championship, smiled: “Nahki is very strong mentally and he kept going.
“He knows he will always be offered chances so he has to stay focused, and it was a great goal.
“I was proud of our performance because we worked very hard to get the win and showed we have learned from past matches.”
Jackett, who fielded ex-Town midfielder Conor Coady, said: “I felt it was a battle, a scrappy game.
“In the first half probably Huddersfield had more of it although we defended well.
“In the second period I thought we got on top of them and had some good breaks.
“But there’s a key moment in the game, obviously Wells is a goalscorer, and he’s put the chance away.”<p/>
