David Wagner looked back on his first draw as head coach of Huddersfield Town and said: “A point was the least we deserved.”

Nahki Wells chalked up an 86th-minute equaliser direct from a free-kick to seal a 1-1 Championship draw with QPR after Wagner’s fellow German Sebastian Polter had put the Londoners ahead six minutes before.

It was top scorer Wells’ eighth goal of the season and his third in two games after the 3-1 home win over Preston North End on Boxing Day, and Wagner added: “He did a great job.

“I was pleased with the whole team, and the way they responded to conceding the goal. Mistakes and setbacks happen in football, but it’s about how you react, and we reacted very positively.

“We knew we had enough time on the clock and we created a number of chances and took one of them. I think a point was the minimum we should have had after our performance.”

Wagner praised the display of keeper Joe Murphy, who returned for a first appearance in seven games, but said there is still a chance of bringing Jed Steer back to the club.

The Aston Villa player’s latest loan ended after the Preston game, but can be renewed when the transfer window opens on January 2.

“We will review the situation and if we decide to bring in another keeper, Jed will be at the front of my mind,” said Wagner, whose side head to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

Murphy’s inclusion was one of six changes to the starting side, but Wagner said his team choice didn’t reflect the performances against Preston of those left out.

“It was our second game in three days and I wanted my side to be as fresh as possible,” he explained. “My players understand and accept why changes are made.”
