It's a welcome return for the John Smith's Stadium for Huddersfield Town to take on Wolves on a wet Yorkshire afternoon.

Town are aiming for back to back wins, following the hugely impressive win last time out at the City Ground.

David Wagner is certainly out for all three points and wants his team to show hunger and greed as they welcome the opponents from the Black Country.

Home advantage has prompted the bookies to make Town favourites today .

And they have a 90 minute weapon in the shape of the new, improved, fitter Joe Lolley to call on . The forward is enjoying his football under the boss and is now capable of going the distance for Town.

Stick with us for all the build-up and live text commentary from this crucial Championship clash.

Signing off

Well, that was a good result!

Should set up a decent weekend for Town fans to finish off what has been a fantastic week for those of a blue and white persuasion.

It’s a short turnaround this week with the trip to MK Dons on Tuesday night.

We’ll be back then, but in the meantime - enjoy all the reaction to come!

I’m sure you will...

Thanks for following along and I’ll see you in Milton Keynes on Tuesday.

Wagner back to back

Rather unbelievably, that is the first time Wagner has won consecutive games as Town boss. A welcome and deserved three points.

Philip Billing was announced as Man of the Match and I do agree he was excellent. Lynch made some vital contributions as well, and Steer was called upon to save the clean sheet and the win at the end.

Matmour and Manu made a positive impact from the bench.

Good day!

FT Town 1-0 Wolves

That’s it! Nahki Wells’ goal is enough for all three points!

Playing with fire!

94. Dreadful back header from Hudson and Steer is forced to race out of his goal and get his body in the way of the onrushing Wolves front line. He just about does it.

Hearts in mouths

93. Nervous minutes here! Wolves corner isn’t properly cleared by Billing, and it falls to a Wolves man on the penalty spot but he strikes it first time and it skews well wide.

Final Town change

Nahki Wells is the final player to go off and he’s taking his time! He gets a warm round of applause as he ambles to the sideline.

He’s replaced by Martin Cranie for the final few minutes.

Save Steer!

92. GREAT, strong punch clear by Steer as Wolves loaded the box from a set piece. Billing gets a big cheer as he completes the clearance with a massive boot upfield.

Four minutes added

90. Four minutes to be added on by the ref. Tense here, a single goal is the difference...

Town playing the clock

87. Matmour wins a corner but Town don’t try to get it into the box, they play possession on the left side trying to work the overload. They win a free kick as a result in a dangerous area but only three Town players in the box waiting and Wolves regain possession.

Final five

85. Five minutes plus stoppages to see this out here.

Danny Batth intervenes to stop Elvis Manu running at goal.

Should be two!

81. Well that is painful. Harry Bunn wins the ball off Batth and is racing way beyond the defence and with just the keeper to beat he tries to lift it over the advancing Ikeme but misplaces his effort.

The voice of a fanbase

Wells goal

I think Wells has deserved that. Brilliant play from Matmour to find Manu, and he lays on it a plate for Wells to tap home from the closest of ranges.

Huddersfield 1-0 Wolves!

GOAL TOWN!

79. Nahki Wells scores for Town!!

Wolves sub

78. Nathan Byrne is on for the visitors replacing Tommy Rowe.

Town go close!

76. That’s brilliant work on the right hand side from Karim Matmour, who dances past two Wolves defenders and into the box before sliding the ball across goal. It ends up inches the wrong side of Ikeme’s goal.

Close!

Town change

75. It’s Elvis time! The January loan signing replaces Joe Lolley for his home debut.

Steer saves!

73. Well, there we go. Good stop from the on-loan keeper to deny Wolves, pushing the ball wide where it is turned desperately behind by a Town boot.

The resulting corner drifts out without touching anyone.

Wolves goal ruled out

71. Our wait for either keeper to make a save goes on!

Wolves think they’ve scored, but the assistant had his flag up and that won’t count. Saville was booked just before that chance.

Now a quick break in play to get a supporter off the field. All going on all of a sudden!


Wells down

65. Break in play as Wells is down and in need of treatment from the physio. A few groans around the ground but he is now up and ready to continue.

Argh!

64. BIG chance for Town that and there are groans around the ground.

Town attack down the left flank, and James Husband’s ball across finds Harry Bunn in the box all alone with the goal gaping, but he can’t sort his feet out and Wolves get back to defend.

Shoot!

61. Billing gets the ball about 40 yards out and there are cries of shoooot from the crowd remembering last week!

He doesn’t oblige.

In other news. Matmour has gone on the right wing with Bunn going central to accommodate the change.

Town sub

59. Jamie Paterson makes way for Karim Matmour in David Wagner’s first change of the day.

Wolves free kick

57. David Wagner is incensed with that decision! He’s jumping up and down in his technical area like a madman. Philip Billing won the ball deep into the Wolves half but the referee deemed it an unfair challenge and Town can’t believe it.

Wolves chance

54. The visitors are looking dangerous, and Joe Mason nearly turns the ball home from close range after the ball squeezes through a crowded penalty area.

Steer claimed that one, somehow, but then Town can’t get a hold on the ball and Wolves are able to shoot from distance - wide of the post though.

Wolves denied penalty

51. van La Parra goes down just inside the box under pressure from James Husband but the referee couldn’t be less interested in any penalty appeals.

Chance for Town!

50. First opening of the half for either team and Tommy Smith strikes the ball from 25 yards out but it rises narrowly over the top of the crossbar.

Second half

45. Back to the action where it remains all square. No changes at the break.
