David Wagner says squad rotation will be a crucial feature of the week as Huddersfield Town aim to build on a second successive win at the expense of Wolves.

The German boss has back-to-back victories for the first time as head coach ahead of the Tuesday-night trip to MK Dons and Saturday’s visit of Ipswich Town.

It’s very much one match at a time for Wagner, whose side went 15th in the Championship thanks to Nahki Wells, whose 79th-minute goal edged a tight game 1-0.

The boss made just one change from the 2-0 triumph at Nottingham Forest, replacing Karim Matmour with Jamie Paterson for the visit of Wolves.

But he hailed Algerian international Matmour’s performance from the bench, as well as that of on-loan Brighton and Hove Albion winger Elvis Manu, who made his home debut as a substitute.

“Like most players, it has taken Elvis a few weeks to get used to our way, but we know he has quality,” said Wagner.

“Karim gets stronger and stronger with every game and every day here, and he had a very good week in training.

“It was a tough decision between him and Jamie, but I think we got it right because they both made a contribution to another win and another clean sheet.

“We have the ability to rotate and make sure the side we have on the pitch is as fresh as possible and that we have a strong bench.

“This will continue and we want to take our confidence onto the pitch again at Milton Keynes.

“I was proud of the win against Wolves because they were excellent opponents who made it a tight match. It was another good step on our way.”
