Commentary

Minute   Description
That's all from us, thanks for tuning in and catch you next time. Enjoy the what's left of your weekend!
Wolves remain in the bottom half and miss out on the chance to leapfrog Leicester, whereas Huddersfield move from the foot of the table to fourteenth spot! Wagner and the travelling Terriers will be ecstatic with the win. A key moment to remember in the game is Billing's vital goal-line clearance to stop Wolves getting back into the game. Huddersfield undoubtedly deserve the points!
90'+5 FULL TIME: WOLVES 0-2 HUDDERSFIELD.
90'+4 Neves' free-kick is the final action of the game and sums up Wolves performance. Poor and lacking direction.
Kongolo hauls down Jota and Wolves have the chance for a late goal. Will Neves have another try? You bet.
90'+3 Finally, Hogg makes way for Stankovic.
Secondly, Pritchard is off for Mbenza.
Fairly unusual from Wagner as he prepares a triple subsitution in stoppage time. Firstly, Billing is off for Williams. Perhaps the manager is feeling generous with appearance fees after a great performance from his team! More likely he wants some fresh legs to secure the win in the final moments.
90' Fourth official has indicated 3 minutes of additional time. Wolves seem like they just want to fast-forward to the final whistle.
89' Traore's cross towards the back post is dangerous but Lossl punches away well, the keeper deserves a clean sheet today and has looked commanding in goal.
87' Neves caps off a poor performance with a yellow card, certainly an afternoon to forget for one of Wolves' star players.
86' Traore has been uncharacteristically quiet during his second half appearance, failing to use his blistering pace effectively.
82' We mentioned earlier that Doherty had struggled to make an impact going forward. Vinagre is in the same boat, failing to put in a performance that will convince the manager he's worthy of a starting place going forward.
77' Lossl almost gifts a chance to Traore after coming off his line unnecessarily, the keeper will be thankful for Smith's defensive diligence as the captain steps in the clean up the situation.
75' Nuno plays his final hand, Costa is off for Jota but it seems that the writing is on the wall for Wolves.
74' THEY'VE GOT ANOTHER ONE! Mooy has his brace! He's whipped a low, right-footed shot towards the bottom corner and Patricio can't quite get enough on the ball to keep it out his net. 2-0 to the visitors and Wolves are in serious trouble here! Could Neves have done more on the end of the wall?
73' Huddersfield have won a free-kick on the edge of the area, Billing and Mooy are stood over it.
68' Jimenez is starting to cause issues increasingly for the Terries back line by operating in wide positions and angling his runs inside. Can he grab a crucial goal?
64' Wolves were building a promising attack but a lapse in concentration by Costa meant his pass intended for Traore gifts possession back to Huddersfield.
62' Neves' attempt is blocked by the wall, he'll be hugely disappointed and knows he can provide better from set plays.
60' Hogg is cautioned for a cynical foul on the edge of the box. Neves' mouth will be watering.
58' Billing continues to find his range, his right-footed shot is just wide this time but his teammates applaud the effort.
55' Pritchard hasn't had the best of games. He's completed simple passes relatively well but when trying something creative he's struggled to execute.
52' Boly is caught offside from Neves' free-kick, the defender went too early!
51' Traore has announced his arrival in typical style, he skips past Billing and is chopped down resulting in a free-kick for Wolves.
49' Huddersfield have maintained their aggression in the early minutes, Kongolo and his teammates are not shy of tackle today!
47' We've had a scrappy start to the second half with a few stoppages and no major chances yet.
46' We're off for the second half! Will Nuno's substitutions inspire change for Wolves? They have some serious work to do in the second half after a poor first 45.
Secondly, Moutinho is off for Gibbs-White. The latter has looked bright in recent appearances and Moutinho didn't seem his usual self in the first half.
Wolves are making a double change before we get started for the second half. Firstly, Cavaleiro is replaced by Traore.
The home side have been exposed defensively, Huddersfield have found space out wide, dragging out the defenders to create chances centrally. For Wolves, Moutinho and Neves have been unusually uninfluential and Jimenez isn't involved enough. We'll be back for the second half shortly!
Wolves have been outfoxed by the Terriers so far as the visitors have created traps in midfield to win the ball back. Productive, positive passing has been a feature of the first half for Wagner's men who have been better in pretty much every department, fully earning their 1-0 lead.
45'+3 HALF-TIME: WOLVES 0-1 HUDDERSFIELD.
Mooy's corner is whipped in invitingly, Wolves are forced into a last ditch block to prevent Mounie's header from finding the net, he’s looking more and more like scoring! Not this time though, his opponents look all over the place defensively at times.
45' Three minutes of added time here, as Mounie drives a speculative effort from range which Patricio manages to save comfortably. Audacious attempt from the striker in need of a goal!
44' Huddersfield deserve to lead in this game, Wolves are yet to have a shot on target and don't look as hungry as the Terriers.
42' Wolves initially responded to Huddersfield's goal quite well but Huddersfield have worked intensely in the midfield area to choke out any creativity and starve Jimenez of the ball, the front man has struggled to contribute so far.
38' Interesting corner routine from the visitors, Mooy clipped it back quickly to Hogg and his cross found Kongolo at the back post, his header almost found the back of the net and Patricio is called into action again!
36' Big chance for Mounie! Mooy's corner is right on the money and the striker gets his shot on target, but straight at Patricio whom gathers gratefully.
34' Bennett manages to get involved this time, his attempt from range fails to trouble the keeper though and drifts well over.
30' Mooy's chipped pass finds Durm out on the left-wing, he cut inside and found Billing who attempts an ambitious shot-on goal, no luck this time though as it's high, wide and not handsome.
27' Foul by Billing, Boly is down and receiving some attention from the medical staff as he was on the end of the mistimed tackle. The French defender is back to his feet now though and looks ready to continue.
26' Billing has started well for Huddersfield, he's constantly looked to pass forward into dangerous positions, if he continues in this manner he may well end up with an assist to his name at a later stage.
24' Massive tackle from Coady that any defender would be proud of, he takes ball and man as he slides in with force. Pritchard is down and the physios are on to attend to him. It's more than likely he'll continue but there's no surprise he needs some recovery time after that tackle, he got absolutely wiped out!
20' Cavaleiro steps inside onto his right foot and looks to cannon one towards goal, his shot is successfully blocked though before Lossl has to worry.
17' Early booking for Smith, he's clattered Costa from behind needlessly and is punished adequately. Not a wise decision from the captain at this early stage.
15' Pritchard is allowed to dribble within range and pulls the trigger, Coady blocks though and it flies out for a corner kick, eventually ending up with Patricio.
12' Huddersfield seem to be getting some joy in behind Wolves currently as the home side look to press.
10' Shouts for a penalty from Wolves as Cavaleiro went down in the box, it was a brilliant recovering tackle by Kongolo though to prevent a one-on-one situation.
8' Frustrating start for Wolves as they failed to set pace in the game and allowed Huddersfield to settle first, for which they were punished imminently.
6' Huddersfield broke down the right and Durm found himself in a crossing position, he pulled it back into a brilliant area to put it on a plate for Mooy, who finished from just outside the box.
GOOOALL! What a start, the Terriers have grabbed an early lead! Sensational finish! Finessed into the corner nonchalantly by Mooy with his right foot to make it 1-0.
4' Early corner for Wolves, Bennett jumped highest but couldn't quite generate sufficient power to trouble Lossl or get his header goalwards. It's out for another corner-kick though and Huddersfield are under pressure now.
2' Not a great deal to report in the early stages, there is a fantastic atmosphere and a high energy start from both sides, neither goal has been under threat yet though.
1' We're underway!
