“We went up by getting wins like that,” said the Wales ace, whose initial stay at Town runs until December 8 and takes in five further matches.

“Often the others don’t get the praise they should, and it took a good team effort to earn this win.
“It’s a great position to be in at this stage of the season, and I hope there are a lot more wins to come.
“It’s great to be here, I owe Huddersfield a lot for giving me this opportunity of regular football, and I just want to do as well as I can in the month I’m here and see what happens.”
