Huddersfield’s two-year stay in the Premier League is over after their relegation to the Championship was confirmed.
Jan Siewert’s side needed to win at Crystal Palace for their destiny to remain in their own hands, but their 2-0 defeat to Roy Hodgson’s side on Saturday sealed their fate before the start of April.
Burnley’s 2-0 victory over Wolves, coupled with Southampton’s 1-0 win at Brighton, left Huddersfield 19 points adrift of safety with six games remaining.
The Terriers’ return to English football’s second tier was confirmed at the venue where they made their Premier League debut in such memorable fashion, beating Palace 3-0 on the opening day of last season.
But they have found their second campaign in the top flight a much more difficult proposition, registering just three wins so far from their 32 league matches.
