1. Huddersfield Town can manage back-to-back home wins
It’s been far too long, almost a year to be precise, since it happened.
But after Rotherham United came this welcome victory over Preston North End.
It’s a cliche, but for successful sides, home is usually a castle.
Town have still lost more John Smith’s Stadium games (five or six if you include Notts County in the Capital One Cup) than they have won (four) this term.
Hopefully they can even things up in the league when Charlton Athletic visit on Tuesday, January 12.
2. David Wagner doesn’t hesitate to bring on substitutes
For the fourth match running, there was a difference to the Town XI who started the second half from the first.
This time Kyle Dempsey, who himself came on at the break at Brentford, was replaced by Harry Bunn.
The newcomer quickly made his mark and set up Nahki Wells, another to come on at half-time at Brentford, for his second goal.
“Harry was very active when he came on and it’s good we have again given our game something positive from the bench,” said Wagner.
3. Nahki Wells is looking good
After an encouraging display from the bench at Brentford, Town’s £1.3m record signing put in a fine performance.
The top scorer netted twice against Preston to make it seven for the season and might well have had a second hat trick for Town (after last season’s Capital One Cup clash at Chesterfield).
4. At last a goal from a corner
Set-pieces have hardly been fruitful for Town this season, so it was good to see Emyr Huws put one straight into the back of the net from a corner.
We’ll take a goal however it comes!
Reece James did the same thing against Derby County last season, and famously, Town legend Billy Smith became the first-ever player to take advantage of a rule change to allow goals direct from corners when he notched against Arsenal back in 1924.
