Huddersfield Town head coach David Wagner has admitted we did take a lucky victory over Queens Park Rangers last weekend.

Making the trip to Loftus Road and seeing goals from Izzy Brown and Nahki Wells give us a two one victory on the day, Wagner told the Huddersfield Daily Examiner that he was happy to concede it was a lucky victory on the day given the saves that goalkeeper Danny Ward had to pull off across the game.

‘We had to be at our best in terms of the fighting and working attitude. We defended well as a group, but I think we were lucky because QPR were brave and aggressive. Danny Ward was the best player on the pitch and this says everything about the match.’

The Yorkshire Post carry the following.

‘We have to be honest; we were not at our best and I think we were lucky today. QPR were very good. They were very aggressive, created on the wings and our keeper Danny Ward was by miles the best player on the pitch, which I think says everything. We got three lucky points, but three points are three points and we are so happy to have got them.’

Wagner went on to say.

‘We should not forget also that we scored two wonderful goals and created other opportunities as well. But in my opinion QPR deserved more than they got. It doesn`t change that we have got three three points, though. We scored two great goals and in the second half we were unable keep the pressure off. But how we defended, and how Wardy kept us in the game and we fought to keep the ball out of our net, was great to see.’

With it being Huddersfield’s first ever win at Loftus Road the bad news from the game was the injury to Jonathan Hogg who was forced off with a groin injury. As Wagner was speaking to the media there was no update on the severity of his problem.

‘Hopefully he (Hogg) went off early enough to limit how serious the injury was. Chris Schindler has a cut on his head, but should be okay.’
