Video: Nahki Wells Scores In Huddersfield Win

December 5, 2015

Bermuda’s Nahki Wells scored his fifth goal of the season in today’s [Dec 5] match, as Huddersfield Town defeated Birmingham 2 – 0.

The club’s match report said, “In his third game in charge, Huddersfield Town secured a first win under Head Coach David Wagner – and it was fully deserved after another great performance.

“The game started well, with Joe Lolley scoring his second goal in as many seasons at St. Andrew’s inside 36 seconds before Nahki Wells sealed the deal nine minutes from time.

“The goal came through Town’s first attack of the game, starting with Lolley in the left back area. His ball into the middle of the pitch set Jamie Paterson into space and he in turn set Scannell away on the right.

“Town picked up the quality towards the end of the half. After Wells had a shot blocked in a goalmouth scramble, Lolley had a great chance.

“More good work from Scannell on the right ended with his drilled low ball dropping to the goalscorer, but his shot from 15 yards out was going wide before it took a deflection off a defender.

“Town had the first chance of the second half in the 53rd minute when a back-heel from Paterson set Huws into space down the left; he lifted a cross to the back post, but Scannell could only turn it wide before colliding with the woodwork.

“Then, with nine minutes left, Nahki Wells secured the result with his fifth of the season. The goal owed everything to Scannell’s wing play; he knocked Maghoma flying shoulder to shoulder before cutting inside left back Jonathan Grounds and putting the ball on a plate for the Bermudian to tap home at close range.”
