Wells Injured im Huddersfield Hammering

IslandStats.com
Bermudian striker Nahki Wells’ hopes of hitting his 20-goal target this season were dealt a severe blow when he was replaced at half-time with a knee injury as Huddersfield Town crashed to a 4-0 defeat in an English Championship match at Bristol City.

The injury has now left open to question whether Wells will be fit enough to play for Bermuda in their Caribbean Cup second-round matches.

Head coach David Wagner described it as Huddersfield’s worst performance of the season.

He disclosed after the game that 25-year-old Wells’ knee injury could keep him out of the final match of the season against Brentford, Wells has scored 18 goals so far this term.

Huddersfield slipped to 19th place, one below Bristol City, but are well clear of the relegation zone.

The Bermuda Football Association were hoping Wells would make himself available for Bermuda’s Caribbean Cup second-round matches against French Guiana and Dominican Republic in June.

Bermuda fans would remember during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia campaign a year ago Wells sat out of the matches against Guatemala.

Bermuda take on French Guiana on June 1st at the Stade Municipal Dr Edmard Lame in Cayenne before returning to the island to face Dominican Republic at the National Sports Centre on June 7th.

Dominican Republic, who are ranked 18 places above Bermuda in the FIFA world rankings, finished top of their qualifying group on goal difference after losing 2-1 away to Curaçao before a 2-0 victory over Barbados.

Bermuda advanced from the preliminary round after finishing as runners-up on goal difference behind group winners French Guiana, who they defeated 2-1 here in March. Cuba failed to advance after beating Bermuda at home before losing away to French Guiana.

NAHKI WELLS – HUDDERSFIELD

Jonathan Kodjia took his goal tally for the season to 20 with two goals as Bristol City thrashed Nahki Wells and his Huddersfield Town teammates 4-0 in their final home Sky Bet Championship game of the season.

Joe Bryan and the impressive Lee Tomlin also got on the scoresheet as Lee Johnson's team celebrated safety from relegation with an emphatic display, despite being without several first choice players.

RAI SIMONS – CHESTERFIELD

Rai Simons watched from the bench as Chesterfield confirmed their place in League One next season with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Bury at the Proact Stadium.

A first-half penalty from Jay O'Shea and a deflected Lee Novak strike put Chesterfield in charge before Dan Gardner sealed the win they needed to avoid relegation.

REGGIE LAMBE – MANSFIELD

Ollie Palmer scored the goal that gave Leyton Orient a 1-0 win against Reggie Lambe and his Mansfield Town teammates in the League Two contest at the Matchroom Stadium.

Former Mansfield striker Palmer scored on 49 minutes when he rose to meet a Lloyd James free-kick and send the ball into the corner of the net.

Both teams had golden opportunities to break the deadlock in the first half.

However after the break, Mansfield were denied a point by the woodwork when Lambe slammed a drive against the crossbar.

Hudderfield Chairman - No Surprise on Wells Rumors

IslandStats.com
Dean Hoyle says rumors of continued interest in Huddersfield Town striker Nahki Wells come as no surprise.

But the chairman while speaking with the Huddersfield Examiner remains relaxed over the future of the 25-year-old Bermudian international.

Wells has fired in 18 goals this season, with his 17 in the league making him joint fourth-top second-tier scorer.

Every transfer window brings stories of supposed interest in Town’s £1.3m record buy from Bradford City.

And Hoyle, who sanctioned the Wells purchase in January 2014, knows the next will be no different.

“Nahki has two years left on his contract, we want him and (head coach) David Wagner wants him,” he said.

“As a club, we have no financial need to sell, and Nahki is happy and settled here.

“Of course he has aspirations to play at the highest level he can, and every player should have.

“But we think he can really help us push on, and hopefully Nahki does too.”

Town, in 16th, will be up against another 18-goal striker in their penultimate Championship game at Bristol City on Saturday.

Frenchman Jonathan Kodjia, 26, was a £2m summer buy from Angers.

He scored in Bristol’s 2-1 win at the John Smith’s Stadium in December.

City, in 20th, are now seeking a third double of the season after Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest.

Wells' is on Premiership Club Southampton's Radar

IslandStats.com
Nahki Wells is slowly becoming the player Huddersfield Town believed he would be when he signed for the club in 2014.

The striker has scored 13 goals in 28 league appearances under David Wagner, compared to the 14 in his previous 46 before the German’s arrival.

Naturally, his upturn in form has seen his name linked with a host of other clubs. The latest of which is Southampton, who according to Clubcall, are said to be willing to give Wells the Premier League stage that so many think he deserves.

The Bermuda international has now notched 17 Championship goals this season, and despite his reputation of being somewhat wasteful in front of goal, his 57% accuracy from 126 shots can only be bettered by Fulham’s Ross McCormack in the division.

Town boss Wagner, who worked alongside Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund, has introduced a fierce, high-pressing style of football to the club and has highlighted Wells’ importance to the success of this.

“Nahki is our first defender,” Wagner noted after Town’s 2-0 win over Blackburn earlier in the month.

“Nahki helps the team massively with his work in the defence and the team try to help Nahki get chances and score. He did well today but not only because of his goal, but because of his defence performance.”

There is a sense that Wagner is building something special at the John Smith’s Stadium and talisman Wells will be heavily involved in his plans.

The former Bradford City man has netted 34 goals in his 100 Championship appearances for the Terriers and has only finished on the losing side twice this season after finding the net
