Aaron Mooy scored twice as Huddersfield climbed off the bottom of the Premier League table with a surprise 2-0 victory against Wolves.

The Australia international midfielder found the net in each half as the Terriers were deserved winners at Molineux.

Mooy's double lifted Huddersfield up to 14th in the table, while, Wolves are now without a win in five Premier League matches, losing four. Huddersfield took the lead after six minutes. Uncharacteristically, Matt Doherty failed to track his man, allowing Erik Durm to get in behind the Wolves defence on the left. His low cross was perfectly into the path of Mooy, whose measured side-foot finish flew into the bottom corner of the net giving goalkeeper Rui Patricio no chance.

Mooy extended Huddersfield's lead after 74 minutes with a wonderful curling free-kick, bending the ball around the outside of the defensive wall and beating Patricio down by the post.
