David Wagner celebrated unbeaten Huddersfield Town's third win in four Championship games by giving his top-of-the-table side two days off.

Substitute Jonathan Hogg's injury-time strike sealed a 2-1 home derby win over Barnsley and the boss said: "After a busy start to the season and the story of this game, they deserve a rest.

"We will be back together on Tuesday to prepare for Wolves (at home next Saturday). We are happy, but we know it is early in the season and there is hard work ahead."

A crowd of 20,001 saw Chris Lowe put Town ahead in the first half before Alfie Mawson's equaliser two minutes into the second.

"It was another great atmosphere," added Wagner. "We started well with the help of the supporters and had some good opportunities.

"Our first half was good. We restricted the danger from Barnsley to set-pieces and scored a great goal through Chris Lowe.

"Unfortunately in the second half, they got the equaliser and we took 10 to 15 minutes to get back into the game.

"We have to be fair and say we were lucky they didn't score a second goal, but in Germany we say 'only the hard worker has luck', and we
worked hard.

"If anyone deserved the luck it was my players for how hard they have worked in the past and how hard they worked today."
