Huddersfield officially RELEGATED with record-equalling bad season

Their fate was sealed after a 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace was compounded by wins for relegation rivals Burnley and Southampton.

Goals from Luka Milivojevic and Patrick van Aanholt did the damage at Selhurst Park despite the Terriers threatening a few times in the first half.

It means they have equalled Derby’s unwanted record of going down with six games of the season still to play.

If they want to take a small consolation from this, Derby’s relegation was confirmed one day before Huddersfield’s.

Every little helps.

Who is this man?

Huddersfield have won just three games all season – two of those against Wolves – and have picked up just four points since November.

They’ve also scored just 18 goals, nine less than the next worst.

Full marks to those of you who can remember who the Huddersfield manager is too…
