Black Stars midfielder Andre Dede Ayew was on target on Monday, when West Ham United beat Huddersfield 2-0 at the London Olympic Stadium.

David Wagner, The Terriers head coach, believes that the players played a big part in their downfall at the London Stadium, he felt that town were not fearless enough when on the ball.

The Hammers forward led Slaven Bilic's men to their first win of the season with an assist for Pedro Obiang and his match winning goal following his introduction for Javier Hernández in 64th minute.


"I'm disappointed because this was a defeat where we played a big part in it", said Wagner, adding that his side "were not fearless enough and confident enough". "We lost the ball too easy and we were never really able to keep the ball, so today we were only second best".

"Im unsure if we were nervous, today we looked liked a promoted team with some nerves we showed it with the ball".

Huddersfield's chances were rare and while they did hit the bar through Tom Ince late on, that came with the visitors already two goals down. Five minutes later, a corner fell the way of the Hammers, who made the most out of it. Aaron Cresswell's kick found Ayew, who slotted the ball in.


Town will have a few days to work on their game, as they next play on Saturday at the John Smith's Stadium against Leicester City. We will learn from it and we will make it better next Saturday. West Ham were stronger with more opportunities and we were not good enough.
