“We all agree, Wagner is better than Klopp.”

Huddersfield Town’s travelling fans hailed the German head coach as gegen-pressing finally came good at the third attempt.

And hopefully, just like Liverpool under Wagner’s compatriot and great mate Jurgen Klopp, there will be plenty more good days like this one to come.

There were positive signs for Town against both Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough, and a noticeable and reassuring lack of worry on the part of Wagner despite two defeats and a drop into the Championship relegation zone.

Town are back up to 19th after goals from Joe Lolley, in just 32 seconds, and Nahki Wells, with 10 minutes to go, clinched a first win in seven games, with a first clean sheet in the same timescale an added bonus.

And without getting carried away, there is a feeling Town can rise further on the back of their 4-2-3-1 formation and full-throttle football.

Sky Bet Championship - Birmingham City (0) v Huddersfield Town (2) - Town Head Coach David Wagner.

Wagner hasn’t deviated from his approach, nor his he likely to as he insists his side give respect, but not too much, to the opposition and play the way they want to, rather than be forced to change tack to counter what the other team are doing.

There were tweaks against Birmingham, who were engaged deeper down the pitch than Middlesbrough were the week before, while Town squeezed infield to deny space and time to the likes of Demarai Gray and Jon Toral, both lively, talented and potentially dangerous.

It was those two who came the closest to getting the better of Jed Steer, but the on-loan Aston Villa stopper keeper was unbeaten at the home of his patent club’s arch-rivals.

Meanwhile keen Villa fan Lolley enjoyed another dream moment with another goal in front of Birmingham-supporting family and friends at the home end of the second-city stadium where Town have won on three of their last four visits and drawn the other (the former Kidderminster Harriers man scored the equaliser in last season’s 1-1 draw).

The 23-year-old’s fifth Town goal and first of the season, fired home after Wells cleverly left Sean Scannell’s cross from the right to run on to his teammate, rewarded a bright beginning by the visitors which meant their hosts were up against it right from the start.

Town suffered the same first-minute fate at home to Brighton and Hove Albion back in August and managed to fight back for a 1-1 draw.

Birmingham had the odd phase where it seemed they were picking up momentum, but overall the eagerness and industry of Wagner’s side spelled a frustrating afternoon for home manager Gary Rowett, whose team suffered a third successive defeat.

And just as Middlesbrough did seven days previously, Town scored their second at a good time, effectively ending any home hopes.

Scannell deserves real credit for his second assist of the game especially, his surging run ending with a neat delivery which put Wells’ fifth of the season on a plate.

The only downer as far as the Yorkshire side were concerned was the early loss of the excellent Dean Whitehead, who took a knock and left the action in the 74th minute.

Hopefully the midfielder will be back to face Bristol City at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday, the first of two key games with Rotherham United visiting the Tuesday after.
