Ward kept his first clean sheet of the Championship campaign against Walter Zenga’s side.
The young Wales international has been ever present for Huddersfield this season since moving to the John Smith’s Stadium earlier this summer.
The young goalkeeper completed a season-long loan move in July and has started in all five of Huddersfield’s league matches.
Upon departing Liverpool for Huddersfield, Ward signed a new five year contract that will keep him at Anfield until 2021.
Boss Jurgen Klopp is believed to be a big fan of the youngster after recalling him from a loan spell at Aberdeen last season to add him to his first team squad.
Ward made his full Wales debut at this summer’s European Championship’s against Slovakia and Klopp has entrusted his close friend, and Huddersfield manager David Wagner with the task of looking after the young shot-stopper this season.
The goalkeeper spent the first half of the 2015-16 season on loan at Aberdeen before returning to Merseyside and rising above Adam Bogdan in the Anfield pecking order.
However, the signing of Loris Karius earlier on this summer has pushed Ward back down to third in the roster behind the German and established No1 Simon Mignolet.
The Welsh stopper made 35 appearances in all competitions in 2015-16, conceding 28 goals but keeping 13 clean sheets along the way.
The former Tamworth loanee joined Liverpool for £100,000 in January 2012 and is now contracted to the club until 2021.
