Huddersfield striker Nahki Wells describes the "pleasure" of playing for new boss David Wagner

The Terriers picked up an impressive win in their most recent game.

Nahki Wells has revealed that he is now enjoying life at Huddersfield Town, thanks to new boss David Wagner, the Yorkshire Post reports.

Despite two defeats in their first three games since Wagner arrived, Wells believes that the Terriers are making significant progress.

"We are definitely heading in the right direction," he explained.

"It's a pleasure to play in this team and I'm back to enjoying football again.

"I'm actually getting a chance to play a style of football which I've always watched in envy from the bigger teams in the world.

"We are trying to put that platform and blueprint into place, and we are doing quite well at it at the moment.

"It's expansive attacking football, playing good football on the ground, defending from the front and creating chances and scoring. To be in a side doing that is definitely a joy to be involved with," he added.

Although Town's form has been mixed since the former member of Jurgen Klopp's backroom staff arrived last month, their most recent performance suggests that Wells is correct in his assessment of the club's progress. 

A first minute goal from Joe Lolley, and a late strike from Wells himself, guided Huddersfield to an excellent away win against play-off chasing Birmingham City. The win was the club's first since October, and lifted them out of the Championship relegation zone. 

Without that win, the side's confidence could have been severely dented going into the Christmas period. And with five games before the end of the month, a continuation of their previous run may have left them with plenty of work to do just to get out of danger.

However, the win at St Andrew's, as well as the implementation of Wagner's methods, appears to have got Huddersfield looking up, rather than down.
