Nahki Wells Scores In Huddersfield Town Win

February 25, 2015

Nahki Wells and his Huddersfield Town team mates defeated Reading 3-0 yesterday [Feb 24], with the Bermudian striker delivering one of his team’s three goals.

The Club’s match report said, “Town then opened the scoring after 10 minutes when Bunn netted his eighth goal of the campaign. Butterfield whipped in a delightful cross after Wells had a won a free-kick following a foul from Jordan Obita, and Bunn was unmarked to thump a header in to the back of Federici’s net.

“The Reading defence were looking rattled at this stage, with the diminutive Bunn causing all sorts problems. Stephen Kelly hacked the former Manchester City youth product down to receive the first caution of the evening.

“Town then went close again when Murray Wallace flashed a header just past the post. Another classy delivery from Butterfield was met well by the young Scot who was unfortunate to miss the target with his glancing effort.

“The Royals came to life midway through the half, and Town had Alex Smithies to thank as he preserved the Terriers one-goal cushion. Former Town midfielder Oliver Norwood sent in a teasing free-kick that was met by Hope Akpan, and Smithies had to be at his best to beat away the goal-bound header.

“Smithies then had to be alert again to thwart an ambitious effort from Norwood. The Northern Ireland international attempted to lob the Town stopper from the half-way line, but Smithies was on hand to tip the ball over the bar.

“Town began push on again and felt they should have had a penalty shortly before half-time. Butterfield looked for Wells with a neat clip through the centre, but Federici came out to punch – taking Wells out in the process, however the calls were waved away by the referee.

“Wells was in the thick of it again as he nearly doubled Town’s advantage on the stroke of half-time. Bunn chased down Federici and blocked the keeper’s clearance; he then squared the ball to Wells whose curling effort rebounded back off the post.

“Wells was at it again at the start of the second-half and managed to put Town two goals to the good with his 12th goal of the season. Butterfield was given time and space to shoot from 30 yards, and after Federici failed to hold the effort, Wells mopped up the rebound.

“It would be the striker’s final contribution as he was substituted moments later still feeling the after effects of his first half collision; being replaced by James Vaughan.”
