Nahki Wells wins on return to Huddersfield Town

Nahki Wells picked up a win on his return to Huddersfield as Bristol City ended a run of five games without a win with a 2-1 victory at John Smith’s Stadium last night.

Wells, who left Huddersfield in 2017 in a £5 million transfer to Burnley, went close to scoring on a couple of occasions in the first half, hitting the crossbar in the eleventh minute with a left-footed shot from inside the box and then putting another left-footed effort over the bar on the half-hour.

The Bermudian was replaced in a double substitution in the 68th minute, with Bristol City battling for an equaliser after Huddersfield had taken the lead in the 43rd minute through Josh Koroma.

Veteran midfielder Chris Brunt was also taken off, with his replacement, Jamie Paterson, scoring the winning goal in the 83rd minute with a left-footed shot that was set up by Jay Dasilva who scored the City equaliser from close range six minutes earlier.

Wells’s replacement, Antoine Semenyo, had a shot hit a post from outside the box in the 83rd minute, just moments before Paterson’s winner.

The win takes City to sixth in the standings ahead of Friday night’s away match with Cardiff, who beat Barnsley 3-0 last night.
