Huddersfield boss Lee Clark hailed the performance of striker Alan Lee after he scored his first league goals for the club in a 3-0 victory over Wycombe.

Former Republic of Ireland international Lee grabbed a double after coming on as a second-half substitute along with winger Gary Roberts, who added the third.

"If you have good players on the bench it's easy. Alan came on against Cardiff on Tuesday and was outstanding and he has continued that," said Clark.

"He has scored two great goals, and he has always been great in the dressing room, bubbly and encouraging of the young lads.

"He is forcing my hand now and hopefully he'll get a run of games and score some goals."

Clark warned his players they would have to cope with more sides putting up the shutters at the Galpharm Stadium this season.

He said: "Wycombe set their stall out to congest us and many teams will do that because they won't want to take us on. We will have to be patient for 60/70 minutes or maybe right to the end when we work teams to death and they are fatigued."

Wycombe boss Gary Waddock was happy with the performance if not the result.

He said: "We had a gameplan and in the first half it was working. We came close to keeping them at bay and yet we've come away on the wrong end of a 3-0 scoreline and got no reward for our endeavour. Huddersfield are going to be up there for promotion and rightly so, but our performance was encouraging. We`ve had some hard games but this was the hardest.

"There were four crosses into the box and three attempts on goal and three goals. The performance was encouraging even if the result was disappointing. There are signs that if we can play like that we will pick up points."
