There’s a queue developing at Huddersfield Town – made up of fans wanting to slap David Wagner on the back.
Now, Town have chance to put further points on the board with home engagements against Bristol City on Saturday and Rotherham United the following Tuesday, and it’s fair to say the John Smith’s Stadium faithful and in very good spirits.
The only worry is a knee injury to midfield driving force Dean Whitehead, but reflecting on goals from Joe Lolley and Nahki Wells, one fan – registering only as HD1 3SN on www.examiner.co.uk – summed it all up in just one word: “Superb.”
Jim, from Greetland, agreed.
“Another great performance, only this time with the right result!!” he said.
“If we can get a proven goal scorer in during January, we can push above mid table.
“Another great game from Whitehead, do hope his injury isn’t serious.”
Supporter John, from Dalton, reckoned it was the “best yet” while Geoff, from Doncaster, beamed: “Getting better all the time.
“Dean Whitehead class. Broke up their attacks time after time.”
On the Examiner’s Huddersfield Town Facebook page, Sarah-Jane Preece debated who was man of the match.
“Think they all put in a decent shift,” she said. “For me it’s between Deano and Scannell (for man of the match).”
In reply, fan Paul ‘Uptheterriers’ Bubs Hitchinson said: “Deano definitely.
“Gonna miss him Saturday. Hope he is fit in no time. Right engine and quality!!”
Barnsley-based Richard hailed Town’s commitment as being “great”, while long-distance fan Len, who lives in Perth, Australia, was joyous.
“Turning the corner now,” he said.
“Well done Town, keep the positive performances coming!”
Mike, from Cannock, says Town had been written off in the Midlands beforehand.
He explained: “Very pleased. I listened to a Birmingham radio station on Friday night. They said Birmingham would take all three points from a poor Huddersfield Town.”
Neil, from Holmfirth, and Tony, who is based in Marsh, feel Wagner is having a big influence.
“Superb, plenty of energy,” said Neil.
“What a turn around under Wagner. Great stuff.”
Tony concurred, adding: “An excellent performance. Wagner’s style is starting to show.”
Steve, from Huddersfield, was similarly impressed and added a tongue-in-cheek conclusion.
“Now we have a left back and we are playing forwards up front and they’re scoring.
“What next – turn Murray Wallace into Alan Hansen.”
