Michael Hefele has fast become a fan favourite at the John Smith's Stadium since joining from Dynamo Dresden over the summer.

And on Monday Town boss David Wagner confirmed the big German would get his first league start for the Terriers against Rotherham on Tuesday night.

The news quickly filtered through to Town fans on social media, with many of the Town faithful ecstatic that they would finally see the eccentric centre-half for longer than 10 minutes.

Hefele has already notched his first goal for Town, scoring the all-important equaliser at Villa Park last month, but has had to settle for a spot on the bench in recent weeks.

Most Town fans were over the moon to hear the cult figure would be starting against the Millers...

Some greeted the news with some classic Town pessimism...

And others went straight to the bookies!
