Miguel Almiron was denied a dream home debut by the woodwork as Newcastle eased their relegation fears by nudging 10-man Huddersfield closer to the Premier League exit.

Newcastle extended their lead six minutes later when Perez beat Lossl from Rondon’s knock-down to leave the visitors in deep trouble. Lossl produced a remarkable reaction save to turn substitute Kenedy’s stinging volley on to the crossbar, and he needed the help of an upright to keep out Longstaff’s curling 76th-minute attempt.
