Agent Grayson: Leeds fans react on Twitter to Huddersfield v Preston

By Dominic Toner

Simon Grayson’s Preston travelled to Huddersfield on Friday in the Championship – and Leeds fans reacted on Twitter to the visitors going a goal behind.

Preston were drawing 1-1 at the break with third-placed Huddersfield, a result that would all but end automatic promotion hopes for the Terriers if it stayed the same.

Aiden McGeady opened the scoring in the 23rd minute and the Leeds fans have dubbed Preston’s boss “agent Grayson” as a result.

However, the hosts did manage to equalise through Elias Kachunga on the stroke of half-time to set up a nervy second period.

The 47-year-old previously worked as the Whites manager for four years and returned to Elland Road last weekend, but suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Garry Monk’s side.

Leeds supporters were delighted that their Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield were losing during the Preston clash and there is a real chance the pair could end up clashing in the play-offs.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Monk’s side are fifth-placed in the Championship table and travel to St James’ Park to face Newcastle on Friday night.

They are fighting to end up in the top six this campaign and had a five-point cushion ahead of chasers Fulham before the latest round of league fixtures.

The Whites fans couldn’t resist taunting their Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield ahead of their game, but their players will be fully focused on doing their job against Newcastle.
