Huddersfield Town recovered from their disappointing FA Cup exit to Reading by securing a richly-deserved 3-1 win over a below-par Watford side.

The Terriers took the lead early in the second half through Nahki Wells' close-range strike but they were pegged back when Hornets substitute Odion Ighalo squirmed a shot underneath Alex Smithies.

But Town responded in convincing fashion and Wells turned provider to tee up Vaughan for an expertly-taken second and Joel Lynch's acrobatic third capped a terrific display.

But how did each Town player rank in the second league home win in succession?

In pictures: Huddersfield Town 3-1 Watford


Smithies - Was let off the hook by his team-mates after a simply woeful error which handed the visitors an unexpected and undeserved route back into the contest. His kicking throughout was suspect in an unconvincing display. 5.

Smith - Battled well throughout and offered Town much-needed width with the ball on the right as well as tucking in alongside Mark Hudson and Joel Lynch defensively. Was caught out for the visitors' solitary strike, however. 6.

Hudson - Much better from the Town captain, who was solid in the air against Troy Deeney and composed with the ball at his feet. The only blot on the copybook was his role in the Watford goal as he failed to stop Ighalo from stealing in. 6.

Lynch - A colossus at the back for Town and his return was the key to a much more decisive and commanding defensive showing. Won every tackle and header he took on and relished the battle against Vydra, who was on the periphery of the game for large spells. Took his goal superbly. 8.

Scannell - Started brightly and went close with some dangerous deliveries and efforts on goal from out wide, but did not quite have the same impact after the interval as he became way of the threat posed in behind by Watford left-back Daniel Pudil. 6.

Butterfield - Instrumental once more and Town look a much more cohesive outfit when he is dictating the tempo of the game in the middle of the field. Set up Wells' opener with a darting run and low cross and kept the ball well in the closing stages as Watford launched a late rally. 8.

Gobern - Not always effective with the ball, but his ability to retrieve possession for his side proved invaluable in the absence of Hogg, who was not as sorely missed as first expected. That was a credit to the work Gobern put in off the ball. 6.

Coady - Dominant in midfield and his passing and general ball retention were vital in securing such an impressive result. Gave Town a penetrative force going forwards as well as being quick to close down the Watford midfield trio and he worked tirelessly in doing so. 8.

Robinson - Another promising attacking performance from the left-sider as he combined his forward and defensive duties to give Town a balance between the two. Needlessly booked but it underlined his desire to halt Watford as he prevented Miguel Layun from taking a quick throw. 7.

Wells - Outstanding. A constant livewire who posed problems for a nervous Watford back three from the outset and his finish came at a crucial time as his clever positioning from Butterfield's cross saw him cash in. He then turned provider with a great cross for strike partner Vaughan. 9.

Vaughan - Equally as effective as Wells as his movement caused concerns for Jokanovic's creaky defensive setup throughout and his unselfish running off the ball was finally rewarded when he expertly steered home the all-important second goal. 8.
