Wagner 'very proud' after Huddersfield thump Watford

Huddersfield Town produced an impressive performance to thump Watford 4-1 on Saturday.

The Terriers had not scored an away goal since the opening day of the season but Elias Kachunga, who was later carried off after suffering an apparently serious injury, gave them the lead only six minutes in.

Aaron Mooy doubled their advantage in the 23rd minute and their grip on the game tightened when Watford striker Troy Deeney was sent off for a dangerous tackle.

The game appeared over when Laurent Depoitre made it 3-0 five minutes after half-time but Huddersfield were controversially reduced to 10 men when Jonathan Hogg was shown a second yellow just past the hour mark.

Abdoulaye Doucoure pulled one back shortly afterwards but that was where Watford's comeback ended and Mooy's 89th-minute penalty gave Huddersfield the final word.

Terriers boss David Wagner told HTTV: “I'm very proud and satisfied and I'm still of the opinion that Watford are a top team. My players today were top and performed at their very best today.

“They deserved this win, they were so brave on the ball and pressed them high. They were in their face and kept them away from our goal and didn't give them the chance to build up their fluid play.

Aaron Mooy got a double, Laurent Depoitre scored again and Elias Kachunga got his first goal. There were so many great individual stories in this game, but for me the biggest story is this team performance."
