Our prediction for this Championship match:
High-flying Blackburn Rovers will look to extend their winning run to seven games when they host Huddersfield Town to their Ewood Park on Matchday 26. The Riversiders have been scoring goals for fun of late, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to win Sunday’s clash. Chile international Brereton, who scored his 20th goal of the season in a 2-1 win over Barnsley, will be the man to watch in the home team.
The Terriers, on the other hand, aim to stay in the Championship playoffs berth. Huddersfield have been in a fine form of late as well, but seeing that they have already suffered five defeats on the road this term, we are tempted to put our money on Blackburn Rovers. All Lees, Hogg, Vallejo, and Pipa are injured for the visitors, while Poveda and Dack should miss out for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Bradley Dack):
Born in Greenwich, England on December 31, 1993, Bradley Dack is a midfielder who plays for Blackburn Rovers in the Championship. Bradley Dack began his youth career at Charlton Athletic back in 2005 and five years later he moved to Corinthian. However, the English footballer started his senior career at Gillingham, making his league debut against Bradford City on August 18, 2012. 20 days later he scored his first senior goal as he found the net in Football League trophy clash against Crawley Town.
Before joining Blackburn Rovers on June 27, 2017 Bradley Dack played four games on loan for Braintree Town, scoring one goal in those league games. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he is used as both right and left midfielder as well. Dack once described himself as “free role behind two strikers”.
The Blackburn Rovers midfielder often finds the net and it has to be noted that he scored 16 goals in 36 appearances for the Riversiders in the 2017/2018 League One campaign.
Highlighted Team (Huddersfield):
Back in 1926 Huddersfield Town became the first English club to win three straight domestic trophies. Since 1908 the Terriers were playing at Leeds Road, but in 1994 John Smith’s Stadium became home of Huddersfield Town. The club play in the English second tier (Championship) and the colour of the their home kit is blue and white (stripes).
Huddersfield Town were founded in 1910 and just three years later they entered the Football League. In 1926 the Terriers won their last domestic trophy, but they did well finishing runners up in the FA Cup 1920. The club’s biggest rivals are Leeds United and it has to be noted that Huddersfield Town have better head-to-head record of the two teams.
Bradford City are considered Huddersfield’s local rivals as well, but there are small rivalries with Barnsley, Halifax Town, Manchester City and Oldham Athletic. The club’s chairman is Dean Hoyle.
