Huddersfield Town long spell out of the top flight
Premier League and relegation
Apart from finishing third in the 2021/22 season, and just missing out on promotion after losing the play-off final to Nottingham Forest, Huddersfield Town have spent the last few seasons battling against relegation to League 1.
Warnock's great escape
"I'll remember tonight for the rest of my life," said Warnock after beating the Blades. "It's a massive achievement and I couldn't be any prouder."
In June 2023, Warnock agreed a one-year extension to stay on as Huddersfield boss for the 2023/24 season.
However, that spell didn't last as long as Warnock had expected.
The club’s new American owner Kevin Nagle wanted to make a long-term appointment as the club bid to regain Premier League status and decided Warnock should step down after a midweek game against Stoke on the September 20, 2023.
“We’ve actually done what we set out to do really,” Warnock told a press conference.
“Kevin has a three-year plan to reach the Premier League. I thought it would be about Christmas time but once they told me they wanted to bring someone in I think they had to move on quickly.
“I was gobsmacked really but when Jake (Edwards, chief executive) told me why I understood why.
“If you’re not wanted you want to go straight away. I don’t mean that how it maybe sounds.
“I always told him I’d do it until they were ready and then if they let me know I’d go. I’ve not fallen out with anybody.
“I think it was the right thing that I came back, I don’t think it would have helped anyone to come in in pre-season but we’ve made a lot of progress.”

American businessman Kevin M Nagle completed his takeover of Huddersfield in June 2023.
Nagle's deal, via his company Town FC LLC, with former chairman Dean Hoyle received the approval of the English Football League and the Financial Conduct Authority and gave him 100 per cent ownership of shares.
