Huddersfield Town have walked away victorious from their first ever home Premier League game.

The 1-0 win over Newcastle follows last weekend's 3-0 victory at Crystal Palace.

The victory makes the Terriers only the third newly-promoted side to win their first two games in the Premier League era, emulating Bolton in 2001 and Hull last season.

Aaron Mooy's fine second-half strike maintained Huddersfield's dream start to the season in their first top-flight home game in 45 years..

The Australian, who this summer turned a loan from Manchester City into a permanent signing that could rise to £10million, smashed in a 50th-minute winner following a one-two with Elias Kachunga as the Terriers defeated one of the sides they came up with last term.

Having waited so long for top-flight football, Huddersfield fans are now dreaming even bigger.

After Mooy's opener they could be heard chanting, 'We're on our way, to the Champions League, we're on our way'.
