Following the victory, David Wagner told the club’s website:

“Today the players left everything on the pitch. They really showed the Terrier identity. It wasn’t the best football-wise, but it was all about the three points tonight.

Pellegrini admits Hernandez deserves MOTM

The Mexican striker scored twice, first to give West Ham United a 3-3 tie against Huddersfield Town and then to give the Hammers a victory.

“The supporters really were behind the players from the first minute and this helped massively.

“We deserved the lead, and in the second half we were able to see out this win. It is good to have this winning feeling back. We are back in the race!

“Our idea was to match them up and press them high, as they are so strong in ball possession.”
