Nahki Wells at centre of Huddersfield Town fans debate after defeat by Ipswich Town

How supporters responded to the Championship setback

Give Nahki Wells a bit of help!

That’s the plea from one Huddersfield Town fan after the 1-0 home Championship defeat by Ipswich Town.

After scoring four times in five games, top scorer Wells drew a blank against the Tractor Boys and remains on 14 goals for the season.

Iain, from Ravensthorpe, said: “It’s one step forward, one step back.

“Possession means nowt in football, only goals count.

“Wells is good but it’s unfair to ask him to shoulder it all on his own.

“Besides, I’m old school and don’t believe a team playing at home with only one striker deserves to win!”

However Phil, from Mirfield, believes Town need a new goal-getter.

“Excellent approach play in first half. If we had a half-decent striker we would have been out of site after 20 minutes.

“When is David Wagner going to realise Wells isn’t even an average striker.

“If he was his 13 (league) goals would be 33 by now.

“This team produces a hatful of chances. Get a real striker and Town would take off under Wagner.”

Chris Green, from Dalton, said: “Perhaps the most nonplussing football match involving Town I can recall.

“We had 67% possession, 22 attempts, no goals and an unappetising 1-0 loss to boot says it all.

“We don’t have an issue creating chances, but it’s the perturbingly poor conversion rates that unsettle me.

“I am a fan of outplaying the opposition and having a Barcelona-style attacking approach.

“But when you have a profligate forward line that lacks the artisanship to net chances, you are going to taste defeat repeatedly.”

Danny, from Outlane, said: “How frustrating was that?

“We completely dominated the game and lost.

“But there’s no need to lower the lifeboats - on another day it could have been 5-0.

“One thing I couldn’t understand was why we took our best player off.

“Kyle Dempsey was doing okay.

“Bunn has gone right off and the full-backs weren’t up to scratch, but overall, we were unlucky. Up the Town!”

Eamonn, from Leeds, is still feeling positive.

He said: “It was a disappointing result but it highlights where out areas of greatest needs are for the summer. Keep the faith!”
