Huddersfield recorded their sixth straight league win on Tuesday night – and Newcastle supporters expressed their concern on Twitter about their promotion rivals.

Rafael Benitez’s side are currently top of the Championship table and are vying for one of the two automatic spots this season.

They are a point ahead of second-placed Brighton, who have been impressive under Chris Hughton.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield continue to be the closest challengers to the top two as they recorded a narrow 1-0 win over Reading.

Philip Billing scored an 82nd minute winner for the Yorkshire club and they have moved to just five points behind Newcastle.
