Watch! Mooy celebrates his 100 with vital win

Watch! Mooy celebrates his 100 with vital win

Nearly three years to the day since manager David Wagner took over, the Terriers scored early-ish and held on to beat a flimsy Fulham side who slid to the bottom of the league upon the sound of the final whistle.

For Wagner, the only thing that mattered was picking up a first win of the season.

The defeat leaves Slavisa Jokanovic's side at the bottom of the Premier League table and the pressure is starting to mount on the boss.

Despite growing speculation over the Serb's future following a poor defeat at Huddersfield on Monday night, Jokanovic insists he still has the backing of owner Shahid Khan. It's hard to explain but obviously, the biggest problem for us was that we had so many good performances in the past, especially at home, Liverpool, Tottenham as well, Burnley away, but without goals, points or a win. It's extra pressure for the team, for all of us.

"This is huge for us". For sure it is one of the most important wins we've had in the last three years.

Chris Smalling: 'Manchester United will attack Juventus'
Marcus Rashford's goal in added time handed Manchester United a 2-1 win against Bournemouth . Ronaldo rattled the post just before the first-half whistle.

For Wagner, he has not seen his side win in 14 Premier League matches, a streak stretching back to last season, while they also have not scored at home since April. Everybody needed this belief back.

Steve Mounie headed Aaron Mooy's cross tamely over soon after and Alex Pritchard's brilliant effort from outside the area was expertly clawed away by Fulham goalkeeper Sergio Rico.

Chris Lowe crossed deep from the left and German centre-half Schindler saw his header deflect into the net off Fosu-Mensah.

Fulham boss Jokanovic sent on Kevin McDonald and Cyrus Christie for Luciano Vietto and Fosu-Mensah at the interval and the Londoners began the second half with more intent.

Substitute McDonald had been forced out of the action due to a knock but Fulham began to make a fist of it.
