Let's hit the goal trail urges Huddersfield Town defender ahead of Bristol City clash

Joel Lynch says the rest of the team need to help out Nahki Wells

Sky Bet Championship -Blackburn Rovers (0) v Huddersfield Town (2) - Nahki Wells celebrates Town's second goal.

Joel Lynch wants Huddersfield Town to hit the goal trail in the final two matches of this season – and into next.

David Wagner’s side head to Bristol City having scored 58 times in 44 Championship games.

That’s the total reached over the full 46 matches in both of the last two seasons.

Nahki Wells has contributed 17 of this season’s league haul, with 16 other Town players making the scoresheet.

Centre-back Lynch is among them, and scored his second of the season in last Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with Birmingham City.

“Nahki is under a lot of pressure playing up front on his own,” said the 28-year-old.

“He’s done really well, but he can’t do everything. I think a few more lads, including myself, need to dip in with goals.

“I’ve only scored two, but I feel I should have more because I’ve had opportunities.

“I’m sure that’s something we can all work on, and we can all chip in to help Nahki.”

Lynch has nine Town goals in total since moving from Nottingham Forest in 2012.

Boss Wagner appreciated the first under his command against Birmingham.

“Lynchy was very quick in his head, and he took the goal well,” he said.

Bristol City, 20th to Town’s 16th, have bagged 50 goals in their 44 games.

Frenchman Jonathan Kodjia has got 17 of them.
