Huddersfield manager Lee Clark paid tribute to captain and matchwinner Peter Clarke after he struck late on at Brentford.
The Terriers won 1-0 at Griffin Park in League One on Tuesday night.
Defender Clarke struck the only goal of the game deep into injury time to break Bees hearts, smashing home a loose ball in the box as the home side failed to clear.
Clark said: "I think it's quite fitting that our skipper has stepped up and won the game for us when it mattered. That's the man all over. He's been a tremendous signing for me and he deserves all he achieves for his determination to overcome setbacks and his desire to drive forward.
"He's been a magnificent player for us, and it's been a good week for us.
"We stayed together down in Bristol before the game (a 1-0 win at Bristol Rovers on Saturday), and we've taken six points with two clean sheets, and the lads have got to know each other a lot better.
"Now we have two massive home games and we have to make sure we make the most of those."
