Huddersfield fans react to Billy Sharp's late winner in 2-1 Leeds defeat

Huddersfield Town Crest

Huddersfield fans were naturally disappointed that their side conceded a 90th minute winner against Leeds United.

There was a highly-charged Yorkshire derby at the John Smith's Stadium earlier today - and Leeds United came out on top, defeating Huddersfield Town 2-1.

Sam Byram gave the Whites the lead after just seven minutes, but Harry Bunn equalised for the Terriers just 20 minutes later.

Both teams wanted a win to establish themselves in midtable, and it was Leeds who stole a late winner thanks to Billy Sharp, who turned Mirco Antenucci's cross into the net.

The goal obviously sent the traveling Leeds fans into a state of delirium, but Huddersfield fans were left to reflect on a heartbreaking late goal.

Fans were frustrated with manager Chris Powell for being too negative late in the game, and slammed the players for showing up small in their biggest game of the season.

Yet the most interesting factor was that one fan said that he wished Powell had a striker like Sharp at his disposal to come on and win the game, as he did for Leeds.

Sharp has been on the fringes of the Leeds side of late, but proved his worth with his late goal - and again illustrating that he is a proven goalscorer in the Championship.

Here are some of the reactions from Huddersfield fans on Twitter...
