Huddersfield Town secured their first win under Chris Powell and ended a winless home run which stretched back to March with a 2-1 victory against Millwall.

A Nahki Wells brace was the perfect tonic for Town after their 3-0 defeat to Leeds United last week as Town deservedly secured a first John Smith's Stadium triumph since the 5-0 romp over Barnsley back in March.

But how did each Town player rank in the Terriers' second Championship victory of the season?

See our player ratings below.

 

Smithies - A confident display to silence the critics after his disastrous performance at Leeds. He commanded his area well and made some crucial saves and interventions, not least to deny Mark Beevers at 2-1 up. 7.

Smith - Lined up as an auxiliary right-wing-back with Lee Peltier fielded centrally but was adventurous on the flank and looked to get up in support of the midfield and attack. Was booked for an over-zealous challenge on Bailey but overall a positive display. 6.

Peltier - Brought off somewhat prematurely after sustaining a knock but was strong in the tackle at the back and slotted in comfortably as part of a back three which operated efficiently and offered the visitors next to nothing. 7.

Hudson - The new defender was instrumental in his side's success, making some brilliant blocks and challenges as well as providing the vocal presence to organise the back four when the Lions did venture forward. One intervention from Fuller's shot was particularly eye-catching. 7.

Lynch - The outstanding figure in an impressive rearguard performance. He won every header that needed to be won and was quick to get across and cover others while his passing was accurate all afternoon. 9.

Robinson - Was caught out on a few occasions and struggled with the strength of Ranegie when he came on but his desire to get forward was notable and he made several telling contributions from out wide. 6.

Butterfield - Looked to pull the strings as often as possible but could sometimes be accused of over-complicating things and nearly landed his side in trouble on a couple of occasions. His deliveries from out wide were unusually below-par but showed tremendous work-rate. 6.

Hogg - One of the scapegoats at Elland Road but he was nothing of the sort here as he dominated in midfield and destroyed Millwall attacks at source with some tough tackling and clever positioning. His progressive passing was also a visible upgrade in a promising outing. 8.

Coady - His array of passing was majestic and it helped set the fast-paced tempo with which Town overwhelmed their meagre visitors. He showed he can be the full package aside from goalscoring but he proved the most imposing figure in midfield by some distance. 8.

Wells - Took his first goal expertly with a swivel and first-time hit and was vibrant from the outset, displaying audacious tricks and flicks to bewilder the Millwall central defensive pairing and kept his cool to fire home the winner from 12 yards. 9.

Bunn - Another outstanding showing from the vivacious young wideman, whose bravery and constant probing put the away side on the back foot from the very opening stages of the contest. He was irresistible alongside Wells as a pairing and then out wide and had a hand in both goals. 9.

Substitutes:

Holt - Given his apparent lack of match fitness and lack of playing time with his team-mates, this was an extremely encouraging debut for the towering striker. Bullied the Millwall defence after coming on and looks to be the perfect foil for Wells' pace and movement. 8.

Scannell - Only introduced for the final 10 minutes but his impact was tangible around the stadium as he showed his newly-found confidence with some fantastic trickery out wide but was equally responsible when it came to defending his side's lead. 8.

Wallace - Only arrived on the scene for the very final stages and barely touched the ball. 5.
