It's Huddersfield Town head coach David Wagner's 45th birthday today.

His side take to the field tonight against Preston when he will ask his team to give their all and hopefully bring him the best birthday present he could ask for - three points.

Unfortunately we won't be able to give him that gift - as much as we dream of scoring a last-minute winner for Town ourselves.

So our present to Herr Wagner is this look back over the memorable moments of his Town career.
