Nahki Wells chases a half-century of Football League goals as Huddersfield Town aim to topple new champions Leicester at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.
But appreciative teammate Ollie Norwood says there’s far more to the Bermudian’s game.
“He’s been a great signing,” said Norwood of the man who cost a Town record £1.3m when he joined from Bradford in January and scored his seventh for the club in the Championship survival-sealing 2-1 win at Yeovil on Monday.
“Nahki’s workrate and the way he creates chances is first class.
“Playing up front on your own isn’t easy, and it’s an unfamiliar role for him. He’s got his back to goal a lot of the time and yet he still scores.
“He also brings other players into the game with way he holds the ball up.
“I think a lot of people underestimate the job he does.”
Wells, 23, who has scored 60 goals in total since moving to England, will again lead the line as Town aim to inflict only a second defeat in 26 league games on Nigel Pearson’s Premier League-bound side.
His fellow forward Danny Ward faces a fitness test after being left dazed by a collision with Yeovil defender Shane Duffy. Town boss Mark Robins has defender Joel Lynch available after a two-match ban.
The 26-year-old Wales international featured as an over-age player as Town Under 21s were beaten 3-2 by QPR in their Professional Development League II play-off semi-final at the John Smith’s on Wednesday.
Leicester, who have sold all their 3,850 ticket allocation, sealed the title with Tuesday’s 1-0 win at Bolton.
They are seeking a 30th league win of the season and haven’t been nilled in 31 games in all competitions.
