(Reuters)- – Huddersfield Town shot up six places from the bottom of the Premier League with a 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers thanks to Aaron Mooy’s double on Sunday.

The Terriers proved to have more bite than the toothless Wolves, who suffered a fourth defeat in five games and remained 11th.

Australian Mooy scored his first two goals of the season.

His first, in the sixth minute, was perfectly placed from the edge of the penalty area.

The second in the 74th came directly from an equally precise low free kick.

Wolves, having struggled to get into the game, made a double substitution at the interval and improved but the closest they came to a goal was when Mexican Raul Jimenez had a header hooked off the line by Philip Billing.
