Wells dropped as Huddersfield win

Benched: Wells sat out last night's win at Charlton

Nahki Wells was dropped to the substitutes bench as struggling Huddersfield Town picked up their first win in the Sky Bet Championship, beating manager Chris Powell’s former team, Charlton Athletic 2-1.

Wells was an unused substitute as Huddersfield, in the relegation zone without a win in six games after Saturday’s loss to Cardiff City, struck twice against home side in the first half.

Harry Bunn broke the deadlock in the eleventh minute with a left-footed shot into the bottom corner from a free kick, before Emyr Huws doubled the lead in the 34th minute from inside the box.

Charlton pulled a goal back in the 40th minute. Huddersfield had three draws and three defeats before last night, their worst start in the league in 18 seasons.

Huddersfield are at home to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday. Wells has scored twice this season.
