Pressure is tonight mounting on Norwich City boss Alex Neil as the Canaries went down 2-1 at home to Huddersfield Town.

It was hoped Tuesday night's victory over Aston Villa would signal an upturn in City's fortunes but any kind of revival has come crashing back down to earth with a bump following tonight's defeat.

Fans appear to have lost patience with Neil, who took City up to the Premier League via the play-offs in his first season in charge, but who has come in for increasing criticism from supporters in recent weeks as Norwich's good early season form has taken a nose dive.

Many have taken to social media tonight to vent their frustration at yet another defeat:

• @mattjware tweeted: 'No manager satisfies every fan with selection, tactics, subs. But Neil draws ire from majority of fans for his decisions week after week.'
