- Mooy scores in each half
- Wolves floundering after hot start
- Terriers unbeaten in three
Aaron Mooy scored twice and Huddersfield Town moved out of the drop zone with a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux on Sunday.
Wolves have taken just one point from their last available 15, last week’s draw with Arsenal, and remain 11th with 16 points.
American midfielder Danny Williams returned to the field as a stoppage time sub following a long injury layoff, as Huddersfield moves 14th with the win.
It’s also the first time in 22 chances that Town has scored multiple goals in a Premier League match.

Erik Durm set up Mooy for the opener, the Australian guiding a low shot home for a fine opener.
Wolves looked ready to equalize through Raul Jimenez in the 10th minute, but Terrence Kongolo slid to deny the chance.
Steven Mounie had a strong stoppage time header blocked inside the 18 in the next best opportunity of the half.

Wolves were a constant threat to level the score line in the first quarter hour of the second half, with Philip Billing denying Jimenez a goal by millimeters (NBC’s Arlo White claimed it was exactly 1.8 centimeters!).
Rui Patricio did very well to deny Mooy a second following a back heeled set-up in the 71st minute.
Mooy got his second 120 seconds later, though, with a free kick around the wall and inside the near post.
