Nahki Wells said his integration into the Huddersfield side will take a little time despite a blistering goalscoring debut against Millwall today.

The former Dandy Town man came off the bench to score a last-gasp winner in the 1-0 win at the John Smith’s Stadium and immediately endear himself to his new fans.

And while the 23-year-old, who signed from Bradford City for a fee believed to be around £1.5m plus add-ons on Friday, was a satisfied man after hitting the ground running in his first Championship appearance, he said there is plenty of work ahead.

“This is a big step up for me and the most important thing is that I’ve come here ready to learn and get better,” he told the club website. “I know my strengths and weaknesses and one of my strengths is scoring goals. Luckily a chance dropped to me.

“I’m coming into a side that plays ‘total football’, passing the football a lot. This means that a lot of my habits will have to be broken; I prefer to play off the shoulder, but a lot of the time I will have to come and link up play and get involved with the game in order to fit into this team. That will come with time, because I’m confident that my hard work will see this happen.”

On his goal, which saw him convert from a tricky angle, he add: “I’m just delighted to get off to a good start.

“I think the most important thing was to get three points. I wanted to get off to winning ways on my debut and fortunately enough we have done that. 

 “I didn’t get home until late as we were dealing with paperwork until around 8pm, but luckily I got a good night’s sleep. I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to come on for my debut and to get a goal.”
