AARON MOOY’S sensational double earned Huddersfield their first away win in 11 attempts – as the Aussie ended his goal drought at the 30th attempt!
The Terrier’s hero hadn’t scored since he grabbed a brace in a 4-1 win at Watford on December 16, 2017 – 29 games ago.

In that time he has had a staggering 32 efforts at goal which have brought groans rather than gasps.
But yesterday Mooy made it 33rd time lucky to take David Wagners side off the bottom of the table and into 14th place in the Prem.
An expertly finished shot from the edge of the box after six minutes stunned Wolves, who never really recovered.
Philip Billing made a miraculous goal-line clearance to deny Raul Jiminez before Mooy wrapped up three unexpected and welcome points for his side with a brilliant bending free-kick which had Terriers fans singing: “He’s got no hair but we don’t care!”

Wolves started with a bang but fizzled out.
The home side’s laser light show and pre-match fireworks were nothing short of awesome.
Perfectly choreographed, fiery and explosive – exactly what Nuno Espirito Santo must have demanded from his players once the match kicked off.
But all the big build-up and all the razzmatazz soon blew up in the Wolves’ faces when basement boys Huddersfield scored from their first attack.
