Nahki Wells is Huddersfield Town’s Player of the Year.
The 25-year-old Bermudian polled more than 60% of supporters’ votes placed on-line with the Examiner to carry off the Hargreaves Memorial Trophy.
Wells – who was taken off at half time during the 4-0 defeat at Bristol City suffering a knee injury – was also voted Players’ Player of the Year, the ultimate accolade from his dressing room colleagues.
It’s a reflection of how smartly Wells has led the line for David Wagner’s side this season, also taking away with award for the leading goalscorer with 18 to his name ahead of the home clash with Brentford on Saturday which brings down the Championship curtain for 2015-16.
Wagner will check on the fitness of the Bermudian £1.3m club record signing before that match – Wells needs two more goals to his his target of 20 for the season – but believes he has done a terrific job this term.
“Nahki has done a very good job for us,” said Wagner, who included Jonathan Hogg (knee) on the bench at Ashton Gate.
“As I have said, nobody is allowed to expect 20 goals a season from a Huddersfield Town Player. We have to be realistic, with a club in the position we are in, such a mark would be unbelievable.
“Whatever he ends up with, he has done a very good job.”
On the injury, Wagner said it wouldn’t need an operation.
“It’s something he has been feeling for four to six weeks now, but I could see with each shot in the match he was feeling it, so that was why I took him off,” he said.
“He has pain in the knee but he doesn’t need an operation. What he needs is a break for some days, and then maybe for some weeks to rest.
“We will see how he reacts this week and make a decision from there.”
