Huddersfield Town fans are delighted with a first Championship win and urging manager Chris Powell to build on the good work with home victories against Bolton Wanderers and Nottingham Forest.
The 2-1 victory at Charlton has lifted Town out of the relegation placings and lifted spirits ahead of the John Smith’s Stadium double-header.
Powell made four changes in the wake of defeat at Cardiff, handing on-loan duo Emyr Huws and Mustapha Carayol full debuts in midfield, recalling Jason Davidson at the back and Ishmael Miller to lead the frontline in place of leading scorer Nahki Wells.
Danny, from Outlane, said: “Great win, desperately needed and the team changes worked well.
“Two home games coming up now, so it’s important to keep momentum going.
“I’m pleased for management, players and the fans who travelled and got right behind the team – well done.”
Darryl, from Essex, was similarly pleased.
“I was at Cardiff on Saturday to see Town dominate for an hour without creating enough,” he said.
“At Charlton that was remedied in a thoroughly committed performance – and we took our chances!
“The spine of the team was outstanding, Ward looks the dominant centre half we needed, Whitehead bossed again as he did at Cardiff and the oft-maligned Miller never gave their defence a minute and ran himself into the ground!”
Joe, from London, agreed, saying: “A perfect away performance. Ishmael was immense.”
Supporter Derek, based in Linthwaite, commented: “This was more like it Mr Powell.
“Great to see Nahki Wells dropped. Harry Bunn will always get goals.
“Great all-round team performance – now keep it up.”
Mick Budby from Birstall gave his backing to the manager.
“I never expected that result, but I’m pleased for Chris Powell, who was coming under extreme pressure from social media groups.”
Steve, in Australia, agreed.
“Great win under pressure,” he said. “Just stick with Powell.”
Tim in Hartshead reckoned the fans couldn’t have asked for more, commenting: “First-class performance from Mr Powell and his men.”
And Adrian Rhodes, from Sheffield, hopes the result heralds a new beginning.
“I didn’t go to the match, but I am just relieved that we won and, hopefully, now we can take something positive from the win, climb up the table and not be looking over our shoulders. Up the Town!”
