The Terriers ended their four-match losing streak at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday afternoon, courtesy of a couple of first-half goals from Steve Mounie in their 2-0 victory.

Discussing the club's form at home, where they have taken 14 points from eight games, Huddersfield defender Mathias Jorgensen said: "It's not a nice place to come and visit".

"I'm delighted for the supporters and the players", he told BBC Sport. "In this period now, where we have dropped a few games and not just the result wasn't good, but the performance wasn't great, the support has still been vast and that's what we need to have a chance of staying up".

"We improved in the second half, but by that point we were catching up a bit - we capitalised on some space that appeared but when you come away from home in this division and find yourself two goals down, it's always hard to come back".

Club record-signing Mounie, back in the starting lineup after recently returning to full fitness following injury, grabbed his first goal since the opening day early on and headed in his second just before halftime.

Defeat means that Brighton's winless run stretches to five games and they now face a daunting trip to Wembley on Wednesday to face Tottenham.

"We have to have trust and belief in our game and our game plan; the players showed this today".

Joe Lolley made his Premier League debut for Town in the closing stages and without further drama Wagner's side secured their fourth home league win of the season.
