Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl took the plaudits from manager David Wagner after helping Town secure a 1-0 win at home to West Brom.

The 28-year-old Denmark international, who is on a season-long loan from Mainz, made a number of important saves to help the Terriers claim victory, with Rajiv van La Parra smashing home the only goal of the game just before the interval.

When we really needed him he was there.

The hosts were forced to hold on somewhat after Christopher Schindler was red-carded shortly before the hour mark, with Lossl helping greatly in denying the Baggies a share of the spoils.

Wagner told reporters after the final whistle: "If you see the story of the game, we were able to have a clean sheet with the quality of Jonas and we are able to get another three points at home.

"When we really needed him he was there. He was outstanding with two world-class saves and we are very happy we have him in our team. For sure he helped us to get this result over the line."

Meanwhile, Wagner admitted that his side has performed near miracles in the two years since he took charge of Town, gaining promotion via the play-offs last season before making a fine start to life back in the top-flight of English football.

The German added: "Nobody expected when we started our journey that two years (later) we are in the Premier League, 15 points after 11 games.

"It sounds, even if I speak about it, not realistic, even if it is, if it makes sense. If you know where we started two years ago, then this is something unbelievable, extraordinary."

Huddersfield are 11/8 to be relegated this season, with Brighton priced at 4/1, while the Terriers are available at 8/15 to avoid the drop.
