Hopes of an immediate return to England's top flight were already looking doomed, with Huddersfield picking up just one point from their opening three games.

Championship side Huddersfield have fired their manager Jan Siewert following his side's 2-1 defeat to Fulham at the John Smith's Stadium.

Huddersfield Town chairman Phil Hodgkinson has explained why the Terriers axed boss Jan Siewert.

Huddersfield's decision came down Friday night, just minutes after the club suffered a 2-1 home defeat to fellow relegated side Fulham.
