Lee Peltier has his sights set on back-to-back wins tonight.
The skipper, who hopes to overcome a calf niggle in time to figure in the West Midlands, wants the home triumph over Millwall to kick-start a climb up the Championship.
It was a long-awaited second league success of the season for Huddersfield Town, sealed by a Nahki Wells double (the second a penalty) and featuring a debut from the bench for new Wigan Athletic loan signing Grant Holt.
“It’s crucial we build on Saturday,” said versatile 27-year-old Peltier.
“Back-to-back wins could change everything for us.
“It’s important to get something from this game, but of course we want all three points.”
Like his boss Chris Powell, who is going into his fifth match as manager and seeking his second victory, Peltier would like a clean sheet.
“Sometimes it’s just the little things that can make a difference,” he said of Town’s defending.
“Sometimes we’ve been a bit naive. But we’ve now got more experienced lads who know how to play.
“We can manage the game better and I think it showed against Millwall.”
The close-season signing from Leeds United continued: “The new manager’s had a calming influence on the team.
“He’s got everybody onside. And the better we all get to know each other then the better things will be.
“I’m sure the manager’s going to do really well here.”
Peltier played on the right of a back three against Millwall with Mark Hudson and Joel Lynch and added: “I’ll play anywhere I’m asked.
“I thought we had a good shape with Huddy in the middle.
“We went back to 3-5-2 and it worked for us.
“We looked more solid with wing-backs and at the same time we were stronger going forward.
“The wing-backs (Tommy Smith and Jack Robinson) defended really well against Millwall, but they got forward too.”
Town are also assessing the fitness of midfielder Jonathan Hogg after he, like Peltier, took a knock during the Millwall meeting.
