Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield Town have been handed a rude shock ahead of the Championship play-offs, thrashed 4-1 at home by an in-form Fulham overnight.
With an automatic promotion spot still in reach, the Terriers slumped to a fourth defeat in seven matches despite taking an early lead from the spot.
Mooy played a full match in midfield but was powerless to prevent a rampant Fulham from scoring all four of their goals by half-time.
The Cottagers loom as one of Huddersfield’s strongest promotion rivals after making it four wins on the spin, enough to sit three points clear of seventh-placed Leeds United.
Town will hope to rediscover their form before the playoffs commence next month.
Elsewhere in the Championship, the misery deepened for Massimo Luongo’s QPR who lost 3-1 at mid-table Brentford.
Six straight defeats leaves the Rs just five points off the bottom three with two matches remaining.
