Huddersfield Town's dismal start to the season continued on Saturday as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United at the John Smith's Stadium.

In what was a tight affair, Salomon Rondon's 55th minute clinical strike secured all three points for the Magpies who moved six points above the Terriers as a result of the win.

David Wagner's side have only got ten points to their name this season and are currently nineteenth in the Premier League.

As with many teams who get promoted to England's top flight, the second season tends to be tougher than the first and it seems like Huddersfield are following this trend.

Worryingly for their supporters, the Terriers have been very lack-lustre in front of goal this season having found the back of net on just ten occasions.

Yet many fans may point to the fact that their side have been very unlucky in terms of getting key decisions going their way in matches this season.

Wagner was unhappy with Steve Mounie's red card in their home defeat to Brighton two weeks ago whilst the Huddersfield boss believed that his side were treated unfairly against Arsenal last week.

During Saturday's game against Newcastle, central defender Jamaal Lascelles scythed down Terriers' striker Laurent Depoitre and escaped with just a yellow card despite committing a two-footed challenge.

With the score at the time being 0-0, a decision to send off the Magpies defender could have changed the game completely and fans were keen to vent their anger on Twitter:

Some Newcastle supporters also thought that Lascelles was lucky to stay on the pitch:

Huddersfield face a potential six-pointer against Southampton next Saturday and will be looking to for what would be only their third victory of the season.

Rafa Benitez's Newcastle will be looking to make it two victories in a row when they play Fulham, who are rock bottom of the Premier League, at St James' Park next weekend.
