David Wagner hailed his Huddersfield Town side’s self-belief after they claimed an “extraordinary” 4-1 win over Watford and Vicarage Road.

The Terriers dominated from start to finish as they eased to only their second away Premier League win of the season against an abject Watford, who produced a performance littered with defensive shortcomings.

Huddersfield have struggled to find the net this term and Wagner was pleased to see his side scoring freely at the Vic.

“We haven’t scored so many goals or won so many points away and to be so strong mentally and keep believing after our difficult away run, it’s extraordinary and makes me even more proud,” he said.

“No, I didn’t expect four goals in one game. It doesn’t matter if we score one and win or four, I’ll take every win in the Premier League.

“I was impressed with what the players showed today. Even if I wasn’t surprised, because I think we have performed well.”

Watford’s cause wasn’t helped by a first-half dismissal of Troy Deeney as the Hornets skipper was shown a straight red card for a reckless challenge on Florent Hadergjonaj.

Michael Oliver’s decision to send Deeney off was perhaps a harsh one and he evened matters up in the second by giving Jonathan Hogg for a second bookable offence.

Wagner refused to be drawn into a discussion about the officiating of a game in which Town took the lead through an offside goal, instead opting to focus on a positive display by the Terriers.

He said: “I haven’t seen any video footage of goals or red cards. Even if it was only 10 yards from me, I don’t think we have seen anything intentional from what he (Hogg) has done.

“I don’t think it was a second yellow but I think the game was too great to discuss referee’s decisions because it had everything - intensity, challenges, chances, creativity, goals and everything else.”
