Newcastle fans' react on Twitter to Huddersfield defeat

Huddersfield Town's Nahki Wells celebrates scoring their first goal

Saturday saw Championship favourites Newcastle United fall to their second defeat in as many games with a 2-1 home defeat to Huddersfield Town.

Two matches into the 2016-17 Championship season and Newcastle United sit 21st in the table with zero points after defeats to Fulham and now Huddersfield Town. 

Saturday's 2-1 reverse was Huddersfield's first win on Tyneside since 1953 and Newcastle's first home defeat in the second tier since 1992, a run stretching back 40 games. 

And on Saturday the Magpies once again looked short of ideas going forward as Huddersfield forward Nahki Wells gave the visitors the lead with a neat left-footed finish into the bottom corner on the stroke of half-time.

After the break, Newcastle pushed forward in search of an equaliser and they were awarded a penalty on the hour mark following Mark Hudson's handball. 

New number 9 Dwight Gayle saw his spot-kick saved by Terriers' keeper Danny Ward but was quick to nod in the rebound to make it 1-1. 

From there it looked as though only one team was going to win it as Newcastle pegged Huddersfield back into their own half but couldn't manage to find the breakthrough.

But a rare break forward from Huddersfield caught out the United defence as Jack Payne drilled in what proved to be the winner after 82 minutes.

It was another disappointing display for Newcastle who are yet to get going in the Championship this season while Huddersfield sit second with two wins from two.
