Huddersfield ‘lucky’ to win – Wagner

Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner felt his side were lucky to win at QPR.

The Terriers boosted their promotion hopes with a 2-1 victory at Loftus Road, where first-half goals from Izzy Brown and Nahki Wells put them in control.

Luke Freeman pulled a goal back on the hour mark and Wagner admitted Rangers deserved a least a point.

“We have to be honest; we were not at our best and I think we were lucky today,” Wagner said,

“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.

“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 this, and how Wardy kept us in the game and we fought to keep the ball out of our net, was great to see.”
