‘Six-pointer’ triumph over Fulham delights Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner

It was the 29th goal conceded this season by Fulham, who did not manage a single effort on target before the break, such was Huddersfield's whirlwind first-half performance.

Wagner celebrated the third anniversary of his appointment at Huddersfield with a long-awaited victory, their first of the season and his 50th as boss, thanks to a 29th-minute own goal from Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

Fosu-Mensah headed into his own net, under pressure from Town's Christopher Schindler as Huddersfield halted an eight-game home run without a top-flight goal and moved above Fulham and Cardiff at the foot of the table.

"Last weekend [in a 3-0 defeat at Watford] we under-performed and did not look solid defensively, but we were better today and nothing is more important than the winning feeling and the happy faces in the dressing room and around the whole club".

There are many points to win and many games ahead of us, but we need to improve immediately.
"It's massive for us".

Fulham were beaten 1-0 by Huddersfield Town on Monday night at the John Smith's Stadium and fans took to social media to slam one of their players.

A fifth straight league defeat will naturally increase the already considerable pressure on Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, who remains confident in his ability to guide the Cottagers to safety in the remaining 27 games.

"I personally trust in myself. People know I've been here for two years and how I work", Jokanovic told Sky Sports.

Things do not get easier for Fulham, with an away trip to Liverpool ahead of the global break before away trips to Chelsea and Manchester United all to come in their next six games.
