Lambert off to winning start as Stoke upend Huddersfield

Joe Allen and Mame Diouf scored the goals in the second half as Stoke, who included four changes from the side who lost at Old Trafford on Monday, won for the first time in seven games in all competitions.

Chants of "we are staying up" echoed around the bet365 Stadium on an uplifting day for Stoke as new manager Lambert made a dream comeback in the land of cash and controversy.

"I'm delighted for the players and supporters, that was my main concern", said Lambert. You can't hear yourself shout at times.

But if that was not enough to ensure a decent kip then three vital three points, secured courtesy of Allen and Diouf's second half strikes, provided the flawless knockout remedy.

Ryan Shawcross and Erik Pieters made their returns from injury to shore up a Stoke defence which has conceded 50 Premier League goals so far this season.

Huddersfield never threatened either side of the quickfire strikes as its winless run stretched to six league games, leaving it one point ahead of the rejuvenated Potters.

Not only did the triumph lift the Potters out of the drop zone, it was also achieved with a rare clean sheet - only their third this season.

It was Lambert's first game back in management for nearly eight months. I'm exhausted. I'd forgotten what it was actually like.

Asked about a potential reunion with Subotic, Wagner said: "I know Neven very well, a great guy, a good character and a very good player as well but as everybody knows in the centre back position we have no pressure or no problems".

Central midfielder Aaron Mooy discusses Huddersfield Town's next Premier League game against Stoke City, as well as the unbelievable support provided by the fans each game. "I have to accept where we are in the table", said Huddersfield boss David Wagner.
