David Wagner collected his tenth win of his Huddersfield Town managerial tenure at Ewood Park, overseeing a 2-0 victory.
It was a first win away at Blackburn Rovers since 1986, and a most welcome run to bring to a sharp close.
Here's five things we learned from the match.
Town are safe
It’s been obvious for a few weeks now that David Wagner wasn’t in danger of leading Town into League One in his first season in charge, but the victory at Blackburn confirmed it for even the most nervous of fans.
The maths? Town lie 11 points clear of MK Dons in the last relegation place, but with a far superior goal difference, with just four games and 12 possible points to go. This victory actually took them up to 16th in the table.
And after today’s result at Old Trafford, fans who wish to tick off Villa Park on their tour of the 92 league grounds can start planning their trip to Birmingham.
Plenty of supporters are dreaming of a season where a relegation battle doesn’t cross their minds, but one step at a time. Wagner’s first job was to avoid relegation while establishing a new identity and way of playing.
It will be fascinating to see where he ends up after a full season at the helm.
Nahki Wells continues his case for Player of the Year
In truth, this wasn’t much of a spectacle.
An end-of-season encounter between two teams who weren’t ever in serious danger of the drop, with the hosts committed to playing the long ball game, wasn’t ever likely to produce a classic.
But in a scrappy game without much spark, Nahki Wells did what he’s been doing all season - he got the crucial goal. It exhibited true striking qualities, anticipating a mistake, gambling, and then volleying home.
He has 17 goals in all competitions this term, and 16 in the league - which is one behind Hull City star striker Abel Hernandez. It leaves him fourth in the Championship’s list of top scorers this season, and when you consider that no other Town player is troubling the top 40 it underlines how crucial his contribution is.
He’s certainly done his credentials for Town Player of the Year no harm. Will he get your vote on Monday?
Town solidity and Rovers wastefulness contribute to clean sheet
After conceding six goals in the last three games prior to this visit to Lancashire, this was a clean sheet to be cherished.
Mark Hudson and Joel Lynch were truly imperious at the back, and both had decent shouts for the Man of the Match champagne. Town’s back line was solid all day and Rovers struggled to get in behind them to do damage.
Having said that, the hosts contributed to their own struggles in front of goal. Resorting to long balls, crosses were from deep and often sailed past the head of the desperately leaping Danny Graham.
It played into the hands of the defenders, and although Blackburn had more shots on target than Town did, most were into the stomach or hands of Jed Steer - who only really made one good save all afternoon and was rarely troubled to do more than collect comfortably.
Rovers shouldn’t be the benchmark
A good victory and a good result, but most know this wasn’t a day for getting carried away. Town have the makings of a very good side and next term should be an exciting one, but there will be tougher tests than this.
Indeed, there have been three in quick succession recently and Town have failed to win any of them - suffering defeat to Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough, and breaking Terrier hearts by conceding in stoppage time to draw with Hull City.
Town fans, players and manager want to see better things next season. The likelihood is we will, but those with their eyes set on the top 10 shouldn’t be judging those aspirations based on this weekend.
However, you can only beat what’s in front of you, and the hope is that wins like this will eventually become more routine.
David Wagner gives us the highlight of the day
Watch the goals, but don’t bother with the whole 90 minutes would be sound advice for anyone wishing to revisit this particular encounter.
Thank goodness then for David Wagner.
The boss is already a hero with the fans and it is no wonder it is face that adorns the adverts for next term’s cut-price season cards.
At full time, he led the whole team over to the fans to thank them for their fantastic support at Ewood Park, and the resulting celebrations between players and fans was wonderful to watch.
This man brings emotion, passion and a true love of the game and Huddersfield to everything he does.
Hats off to those recruited him, and long may we watch scenes like this. The Wagner Revolution continues.
