Leeds fans react on Twitter to Huddersfield demolition job

By Matt Farr

Huddersfield were thrashed 4-1 by promotion rivals Fulham in the Championship on Saturday – and Leeds fans on Twitter were furious.

The defeat for Huddersfield provided yet another deafening blow to Leeds’ promotion chances, with Garry Monk’s side losing their own tie against Burton Albion.

Leeds are now three points adrift of the Championship play-offs with just two games remaining, having won just one of their last five league matches.

However, they would have been handed a much-needed confidence boost had Huddersfield beaten Fulham on Saturday, regardless of their own result.

It got from bad to worse for Leeds, as promotion rivals Sheffield Wednesday were also victorious against Derby, cranking up the pressure for them to mount a comeback.

Leeds had emerged as surprise promotion candidates after making a flying start to the season, but a drastic decline in form in recent weeks has seen them drop from third to seven since January.

They will now need to win their penultimate game against Norwich in a week’s time to stand any chance of earning promotion to the Premier League.

A quickfire-double from Marvin Sordell and Michael Kightly had given Burton a surprise 2-0 lead with less than 15 minutes left on the clock, before Kyle Bartley snatched one back for the visitors.

But it proved to be nothing more than a consolation goal for Leeds, with Kemar Roofe seeing an effort blocked in the final moments of the 2-1 defeat.
