Wells & Huddersfield Open Season With Loss

August 11, 2014

Nahki Wells and his Huddersfield FC club opened their season at home against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday [Aug 9], dropping a 4-0 decision in starting with a mark in the loss column.

According to the official Huddersfield FC website, “Huddersfield Town will have to improve rapidly if they are to make progressions in the Championship this season following a 4-0 home defeat to Bournemouth.

“As first halves go in football, the one that Town opened the 2014/15 Sky Bet Championship season with couldn’t have gone much worse. Behind after less than a minute, then two after half an hour, the Terriers were overrun by a well-drilled Bournemouth outfit.

“Sadly, the start of the second half didn’t bring any joy for the Terriers. A deep cross from the right was headed powerfully at goal by Pugh and Yann Kermorgant was first to react to Smithies’ save and tap home.

“Town were saved the embarrassment of five 15 minutes from time, when Smithies saved Wilson’s poor penalty. The ‘keeper had fouled the striker after Lynch’s misguided header had put the striker in, but the former Coventry hit man weakly side footed at Town’s stopper from 12 yards.”
