Nahki Wells and his Terriers team-mates went from heroes to zeroes at the weekend after going down to an insipid 2-0 defeat at Doncaster on Saturday.

A week on from their 5-0 mauling of Barnsley, in which Bermuda’s Wells laid on four assists in a stunning return to form, Huddersfield suffered an almighty hangover with a display manager Mark Robins condemned as ‘shocking’.

Goals from Billy Sharp and David Cotterill were too much for Town, whose best chance came after the break when Paul Nixon and Wells forced a double save from Rovers’ keeper Sam Johnstone. That was as good as it got, though, for the visitors and Robins made no secret of his disgust post-match.

He told the club website: “It was shocking; I have got absolute nothing to take from the game. We brought over 2,000 supporters and they wanted it more and bullied us; that was hugely disappointing.

“I don’t want to take anything away from Doncaster because they worked hard and closed us down, but we haven’t passed it well enough. We looked naïve and timid and a total opposite from what we delivered last week. It really isn’t good enough.

“The players look as if they put so much into a win that it takes them a week to recover. The only positive is that I have plenty to work on with the players.”

Wells & Co have an immediate chance to put things right when they take on Charlton at the Valley on Wednesday night (3:45pm Bermuda).
