LOAN WATCH: Chelsea starlet Palmer, Liverpool keeper Ward praise Huddersfield faithful

Kasey Palmer was thrilled with another strong performance by the Huddersfield Town supporters on Tuesday night.

The Terriers returned to the top of the Championship table with a 2-1 win over Rotherham United thanks to an early goal from Elias Kachunga, on loan from FC Ingolstadt, and a nice finish from Nahki Wells later in the first half.

Chelsea youngster Palmer, who was involved in the opening goal, was delighted to again play in front of the West Yorkshire club's passionate home fans at John Smith's Stadium as their strong early-season run continues.

Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward, who was beaten by his Millers namesake in the 34th minute, was also in a buoyant mood after the people of Huddersfield continually showed their unnerving support for David Wagner's side.

Manchester City's Aaron Mooy was again in top form in midfield for Huddersfield while Palmer's Chelsea colleague, Izzy Brown, played 84 minutes after starting for Rotherham who fell to the bottom of the English tier two table.
