Huddersfield Town secured a first away win in three months with the 1-0 success at Wigan Athletic , handed to them by Conor Coady.

The Terriers edged a scrappy encounter against their relegation-haunted hosts and, after Nahki Wells had fluffed his lines on more than one occasion to hand Town the lead, Coady stepped up with nine minutes left and curled a cross-shot into the far top corner.

Chris Powell's side were then able to fend off the Latics' late attacking onslaught to register a first three points on the road since the 3-1 win at Wolves back in October.

But what were the key facts from Saturday's game?

Take a look at some we uncovered below using Opta statistics as Town pulled 11 points clear of the relegation zone.

0 - The amount of goals conceded by Huddersfield Town at the DW Stadium.

This was a welcome first clean sheet in 10 games across all competitions for Powell and his side as they repelled Malky Mackay's strugglers with relative ease and it was only their fourth of the season in total.

Their last away clean sheet prior to the Wigan shut-out came 17 games ago in the 0-0 stalemate at Blackburn Rovers.

5 - Shots on target posted by Town throughout the contest

It was actually Wigan who had more shots, with 20 compared to Town's 13, but their accuracy was called into question after managing to direct just four on target, working out at an accuracy of just 30.8%.

44 - Town's share of possession during their 1-0 win

The gameplan Powell implemented was based on exposing Wigan's nervy backline with quick, incisive counters and the Terriers were happy to surrender 56% of possession in the right areas to the struggling home side, who did little with the ball.

59 - Clearances made by Town to hold on to advantage

Most of these were probably made in the last 10 minutes of the game as the home side came on strong and threatened an equaliser to continue Town's wretched away form, but the backline stood firm to deny the side sat second from bottom.

300 - Total number of passes achieved by Huddersfield

Again, this was an area in which the hosts actually came out on top having made 371 but the slightly more direct style Town used here was illustrated by the fact 25% (75) of their passes were hit long in an attempt to pick out the runs of James Vaughan and Nahki Wells.
