Over and Out.

Fan Reaction

Lots of happy Town fans with how the Wagner Revolution is so far going at Huddersfield Town...

Wagner Speaks!!

The Head Coach hailed a trio of key factors in the 1-0 home win over Wolves which kept Huddersfield Town top of the Championship.

Up The Football League!!

Town remain top of the league going into the International Break after another performance of character.

First half they dominated proceedings but really had to dig deep in the second half for the three points.

Rajiv van La Parra’s goal was enough to separate the two sides - the Dutchman was the eighth different goalscorer of the season so far.

FT: Huddersfield Town 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 0

TOWN HAVE DONE IT....THE ROAR GOES UP FROM THE CROWD AT THE WHISTLE.

DAVID WAGNER’S MEN ARE STILL TOP OF THE LEAGUE!!

Elias Kachunga

What strength from the striker - since moving through the centre he has fought, battled and held up every ball.

An excellent centre-forward display.

Fan Reaction

Added Time

There will be FIVE MINUTES of injury time! I suppose there has been six substitutions and a few niggling fouls and stops in play.

Going to be an agonising next few minutes folk!

Chance!

Wolves piling on the pressure - a long ball into the area falls to Oniangue in the box but he volleys wide.

Let off for Town.

Substitution

And with that, Rajiv van La Parra is replaced by Sean Scannell - I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt for his corner misdemeanour: He’s scored and ran himself into the ground today.

Time Wasting

Disappointing - there is still four minutes of normal time left and Town have an excellent free-kick but instead of whipping the ball in, Aaron Mooy and Rajiv van La Parra hold it up by the corner.

As Doug has just turned to me and said, “Too early to start messing about like that.”

Attendance

Official attendance is 19,972 - not quite as big as Barnsley but still a fantastic turn-out.

Atmosphere

The North Stand Loyal are really getting behind the side as the twelfth man - whole stadium is bouncing, clapping and chanting.

80 Minutes

It’s still 1-0 to Huddersfield - the crowd burst into a chorus of clapping, urging the side to hold on.

Totting Up

Tommy Smith goes into the book for a foul on Mason.

The game is VERY open at the moment - although after Wolves’ initial pressure, Town have got back into the game well.

Pure Comedy

A misplaced Wolves pass and Town have a corner gift-wrapped as the home fans mock - sadly they’re not able to make anything of it though.

Cynical

Huddersfield are under the cosh but they are constantly looking to catch Wolves on the break - great work from Elias Kachunga to rob Price but the Wolves player responds with a cynical foul and is booked.

Substitution

Third and final sub for Walter Zenga’s Wolves - Prince Oniangue replaces Dave Edwards.

Penalty Claims

Wolves feel aggrieved that they should have had a penalty - Costa’s shot was blocked in the box and the rebound fell to Mason but Mark Hudson made the challenge.

Mason went down but the appeals were waved away.

Personally I feared the worse there!

In the Book

Another Town booking - this time Loewe brings down Costa and a free-kick is awarded close to the visiting fans.

A lot of Wolves pressure at the moment - can Town weather the storm?

Expert Opinion

Here’s what Doug Thomson is making of the game at the minute.

We’re not as fluent this half but still holding onto the lead

Substitutions

Well David Wagner has certainly seen enough and he shuffles his pack again - Harry Bunn replaces Nahki Wells.

Wolves also make another change, Helder Costa on for George Saville.

Close!

On the hour mark, Wolves’ substitute Teixeira rattles the post from 20 yards after receiving the ball from Coady - Ward was beaten.

Last 30 minutes could be edgy here...

Fan Reaction

Substitution

Kasey Palmer is replaced by Jack Payne.

With David Wagner’s substitutions it normally means he’ll be scoring in a minute...

Easily Pleased

Well I suppose it takes allsorts Jason!

Second Half Sub

Nearly forgot to mention - one change at half-time for the visitors: Jao Teixeira on for Jed Wallace.

Wolves starting much brighter this half and seem to have gained control of the midfield.

Worrying times at the moment as the visitors earn a corner.

Chance!

Warning signs for Town early on - the ball finds an unmarked Coady on the edge of the area but his attempt deflects for a corner...
