London, Dec 30 (IANS) Huddersfield Town manager Chris Powell says he has no intention of letting striker Nahki Wells go after the Bermudian came off the bench to seal a 2-1 English Championship victory over Bolton.

Powell Monday said Wells, 24, still has a future at the West Yorkshire club – which he joined last season from League One outfit Bradford City – after the striker broke a near two-month goal drought following his entry with 14 minutes remaining, reports CMC.

The Bermuda international, without a goal in eight games, had been pushed out of the starting line-up after the loan signing of Wigan’s Grant Holt.

But Powell said after Sunday’s much-needed victory, which moved Huddersfield up to 18th place in the table, that he has no intention of letting Wells leave the club.

“Nahki will get games and will score goals. He is an important player. He might not think that when he doesn’t start but I know 100 percent what he is capable of,” Powell said.

“We have to make sure we have the platform for him to play and score goals.”

Holt’s loan spell has now ended and he will return to Wigan, with Powell conceding he is short of strikers.

“We are light up front and we will be looking to strengthen in January,” he said.
