Huddersfield boss David Wagner feels his Sky Bet Championship leaders have achieved "something really special" with their start to the season - and has stressed they are heading to Brighton on Tuesday "hungry" to keep their form going.

Six games into their 2016-17 league campaign, the Terriers are the only side in the second tier still yet to suffer a loss.

And by beating their struggling Yorkshire rivals Leeds at Elland Road on Saturday for a fifth win, they sealed the club's best-ever start in the modern era.

Regarding that and his team's four-point lead at the top of the table, Wagner, quoted by the Huddersfield Examiner, said:

If you know how old this club is and how successful this club was, then this is certainly something special. This will always be mentioned in the club history but, and this is important, we have to look forward.

So even more points is now our target and we would like to have more. I know from the dressing room that the lads are hungry and greedy, and they would like to keep this run going.
