Why Huddersfield Town fans have 64 reasons to be happy Nahki Wells is leading the attack

Up with the great names of goalscoring

Sky Bet Championship - Huddersfield Town (3) v Preston North End (1) - Nahki Wells celebrates his second goal.

Huddersfield Town supporters have 64 reasons to be cheerful that star striker Nahki Wells stayed true to blue and white in the transfer window.

That’s because the Bermudian international, 25, is among the leading English league scorers over the past three and a half seasons.

He has scored an impressive total of 64 league goals since the beginning of the 2012-13 season to put him up with the very best – the top six marksmen around.

Wells – Town’s record £1.3m signing from Bradford City in January 2014 – is just three shy of arguably the best centre forward in the country, Sergio Aguero, who has 67 in the Premier League for Manchester City.

Inevitably, reports linked Wells with a possible move away from the John Smith’s Stadium last month.

However, Town’s record signing insisted he would remain with the club for the foreseeable future and head coach David Wagner, too, was adamant there would be no sale.

They were true to their word and fans will be hoping the returning Jordy Hiwula and loan signing Elvis Manu can help Wells maintain his scoring form as Town head to Preston on Saturday.

Former Town hitman Jordan Rhodes – who earned Town a slice of sell-on cash when he moved from Blackburn to Middlesbrough – unsurprisingly leads the scoring charts over the spell from August 2012.

Sky Bet Championship - Huddersfield Town v Preston North End - Nahki Wells opens the scoring.

The Scotland international has scored 85 league goals in that time (for Town and Blackburn).

Second in the list behind Rhodes is Charlie Austin, with 73. Troy Deeney totals 71, Aguero 67, Ross McCormack 65 and then Wells.
