Nahki Wells netted his 13th goal of the season to seal David Wagner's first back-to-back wins as head coach of Huddersfield Town.

But Wolves made the home side fight hard for the three points, with the breakthrough goal finally arriving in the 79th minute.

Team News

Huddersfield Town XI: Steer, Smith, Hudson, Lynch, Husband, Hogg, Billing, Paterson, Bunn, Lolley, Wells.

Wolves XI: Ikeme; Iorfa, Batth, Ebanks-Landell, Doherty; Coady, Saville, van La Parra, Mason, Rowe; Sigurdarson.

First Half

Joe Lolley put a shot wide after a neat Huddersfield Town passing move before Wolves' George Saville had a drive deflected for a corner which came to nothing.

Nahki Wells was showing some defect touches, but couldn't get his speculative 14rth-minute effort on target, then Philip Billing's header was blocked.

Tommy Smith was the next Town player to take aim, his shot being deflected for a flag kick which Wolves cleared.

The home side were forcing the pace and an awkward James Husband cross was hacked clear before Jamie Paterson shot against the right-hand post.

Wolves were still looking dangerous on occasions, and Tommy Rowe should have done better than thump the ball wide when set up by Bjorn Sigurdarson.

Then it took some composed play by Joel Lynch to thwart Icelandic frontman Sigurdarson as the visitors counter-attacked.

Ex-Town man Conor Coady scrambled the ball clear as Wells threatened again, while Billing's header averted any danger as Rowe swung in a Wolves free-kick.

Second Half

Smith, set up by Lolley's pass, put the ball just over from 25 yards out in Town's first attack of the second half.

Wolves claimed a penalty when Rajiv van La Parra went down under Husband's challenge, but referee Kevin Wright was having none of it.

Town boss David Wagner made his first change just before the hour, replacing Paterson with Karim Matmour, who took up position on the right with Harry Bunn going central.

Husband's cross found Wells in a dangerous position, but the Town man couldn't quite get the ball under control and the chance passed.

Joe Mason had the ball in the net for Wolves only for his effort to be disallowed for offside, then Steer saved from Rowe.

Town replaced Lolley with on-loan Brighton winger Manu before Matmour flashed a low drive across the face of goal and narrowly wide.

The breakthrough goal followed a flowing move involving Bunn, Matmour, Manu and Husband, whose cross was converted by Wells.

Bunn had a great chance to double the lead after getting the better of defender Danny Batth but his chip floated wide.

It took a key tackle by skipper Mark Hudson on Sigurdarson to deny Wolves a stoppage-time leveller.

Good Day

Nahki Wells showed some neat touches before finally forcing home his 13th goal of the season.

Bad Day

Wolves manager Kenny Jackett won't be feeling any better after his side's winless run was stretched to six games.
