Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner has credited his side’s 1-0 win over Fulham as one of his biggest career wins.
The Terriers edged out their relegation rival courtesy to a Timothy Fosu-Mensah own goal as they registered their first win since the start of the season. Wagner received many plaudits following Huddersfield’s heroic efforts last season where they managed to stay up in the top flight despite facing numerous difficulties.
On the back of a positive season the Terriers were expected to bank on their last season’s performance but they never looked convincing in the first few matches. But with a win over Fulham the gaffer now could expect to make things work in the next few games.
Huddersfield’s victory helped them in climbing a step up to the 18th place. Wagner said, “It’s huge for us.
“We really have now the winning feeling back, and a clean sheet as well, it’s for sure one of the most important wins we have had in the last three years, because after 10 games without a win and some unlucky situations, everyone needed the belief back and we have done that today.
“Have you ever not won a game for six and a half months? It’s difficult to explain but obviously, the biggest problem for us was that we had so many good performances in the past, especially at home, Liverpool, Tottenham as well, Burnley away, but without goals, points or a win.
“Last weekend [in a 3-0 defeat at Watford] we under-performed and did not look solid defensively, but we were better today and nothing is more important than the winning feeling and the happy faces in the dressing room and around the whole club.”
