David Wagner said it was a "perfect night" after Huddersfield Town beat Charlton Athletic 5-0 to climb to 16th in the Championship.

Skipper Mark Hudson and 10-goal top scorer Nahki Wells both scored from first-half corners before Jamie Paterson, Duane Holmes and Jason
Davidson notched in the second period.

The John Smith's Stadium win was the biggest since Barnsley were beaten by the same scoreline at home in March 2014 and boss Wagner was quick to praise the input of first-team coach Mike Marsh, who has been working on set-pieces.

"It was a perfect night, with goals from corners and our substitutes again having an impact on the match," said the head coach after a fifth win in his 10th league match in charge.

"It's a great moment for us, and the squad should celebrate, because they did a really good job in a difficult match.

"It wasn't easy because our opponent stayed very deep and made it very tight. It wasn't easy for us to find the right spaces.

"In this situation, it's perfect if you score from set-pieces, which we did twice. They were key moments, because after that, we got spaces and scored another three good goals."
