Wesley Hoedt on bench for Southampton against Huddersfield Town

Mauricio Pellegrino was delighted with the character shown by his side as Saints put their Carabao Cup humbling against Wolves behind them to fight out an entertaining goalless draw at Huddersfield.

The newly-promoted Terriers have enjoyed a dream start to their first-ever Premier League season, following up a 3-0 win at Crystal Palace with a 1-0 victory over Newcastle.

Aaron Mooy's Huddersfield have continued their spectacular start to life in the Premier League and will fancy their chances of adding to their seven points in a fortnight.

Huddersfield next face a winless West Ham in London after the worldwide break.

Saints recently acquired centre-back Wesley Hoedt from Lazio earlier in the week, with Pellegrino to make a late decision on whether he will be involved or not.

Huddersfield haven't won their opening three league games of a season since the 1979-80 campaign, when they won the fourth tier; they last won their first three matches of a top-flight season in 1924-25, on their way to the second of three consecutive league titles.

However, as of yesterday, the German said that the Premier League club have still received no serious offers for Wells, who is available for transfer before the window closes next Thursday.

The 37-year-old will provide competition for Jonas Lossl, who is yet to concede a goal in the Premier League.

They also remain unbeaten after three games.

"He is left-footed, he's a type of player that we don't have and hopefully he can settle as quick as possible with the rest of the team to be available".
