Huddersfield Town 1-0 Wolves

27 Aug

Rajiv van La Parra


Van La Parra joined Huddersfield for an undisclosed fee, following a loan spell, in June

Rajiv van La Parra scored the only goal for Huddersfield as they beat his former club Wolves to go four points clear at the top of the Championship.

The Dutchman found the net early on, his first ever goal for Town, when he fired in the rebound after Nakhi Wells’ shot struck the post.

Wolves’ half-time substitute Joao Teixeira hit an upright from 20 yards.

The visitors went close again when Jon Dadi Bodvarsson had a header saved by Danny Ward from point-blank range.

Van La Parra, who had a loan spell with Huddersfield last season, left Wolves to join the Terriers on a permanent deal in the summer.

His goal came after just six minutes as he followed up Wells’ shot to fire into the bottom-left corner in front of his former supporters.

Wolves were much brighter after the restart, with former Town defender Conor Coady having a shot deflected for a corner and Matt Doherty’s attempt well saved by Ward.

The Terriers keeper, who is on loan from Liverpool, then did brilliantly to deny Bodvarsson as the hosts held on to claim their fourth win and extend their unbeaten start to the Championship season to five games.
