Wells and ex-Town midfielder Scott Arfield were both given a warm welcome back to the John Smith's Stadium in recognition of their efforts in a blue and white shirt.
“It was good to be back in such a familiar place," said Wells to Clarets Player HD.
The attacker scored 49 times for the Terriers before making an August switch to Turf Moor for his first taste of top-flight football.
“I got a good reception from the home crowd, I'm just disappointed I couldn't capitalise on the half-chance I had late on in the game. It was nearly a perfect ending.
“Vokesy did well to put it in that area I can thrive on. I reacted to it and maybe just needed an inch more to get more on it, but it was also a great save.
“I've had two Premier League appearances in the last three fixtures, so I'm delighted to be getting a chance.
“I felt I've been working my socks off and I'm fully fit now. I think have a lot to offer to this side, so I will continue to try and take my chance when it comes.
“I'm a bit a disappointed not to have that first Prem goal but the chance will come.
“I have to be patient, of course, and keep working hard, because that's what I was brought in to do.
