Leeds fans react on Twitter as Huddersfield under EFL investigation

By Matt Farr

Huddersfield are under investigation after they made wholesale changes to their side to face Birmingham on Saturday – and Leeds fans on Twitter were in support of their rivals.

The EFL confirmed on their official website on Tuesday that they had written to Huddersfield to request their observations in relation to their team selection for the 2-0 defeat to Birmingham at the weekend.

Manager David Wagner had elected to make as many as 10 changes to his starting eleven for the Championship clash, with Huddersfield having already booked their place in the play-offs.

However, in a surprise move, a number of Leeds fans – who are normally locking their horns with Huddersfield fans – jumped up in support of their rivals’ wholesale selection changes on social media.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The reasoning behind Wagner’s decision to make so many changes for the tie ultimately lies in regard to the upcoming play-off campaign.

Huddersfield are now likely to enter the play-offs having rested their star players, but while Wagner’s decision is understandable in the eyes of fans, the EFL do not share the same verdict.

The EFL are instead focused on the integrity of the Championship, with Birmingham’s precious win against a ‘weakened’ Huddersfield team allowing themselves to move two points clear of the relegation zone.
