Huddersfield Town manager Chris Powell has hailed the 3-0 home win over Reading on Tuesday night as a ‘good night’s work” as the Terriers recorded an impressive victory over their rivals to climb into the top half of the SkyBet Championship table.
Goals from Harry Bunn, Nahki Wells and a first for striker Ishmael Miller gave the Terriers a convincing and deserved win over the Royals.
It was the home side’s first victory in four attempts at the John Smith’s Stadium, and Powell stressed the importance of finally breaking that duck on Tuesday night.
“We needed the win and we needed that response from the players to a frustrating draw against Cardiff last Saturday” said Powell to the Examiner.
“We hadn’t won at home for a few games after doing so well here towards the end of 2014, so I am really pleased with the performance. You want to do well at home and do everything you can to get the crowd going.
“Another clean sheet is great for us, because it was a performance full of quality. The tempo was better and we got the goal we wanted early on.
“We put Reading under pressure and got good balls into the final third. Overall, it was a good nights work.”
The Terriers will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to four games when they travel away to Charlton Athletic on Saturday afternoon.
Huddersfield Town are now up to 12th position in Sky Bet League One, having amassed 42 points from 33 league games.
