Our football match prediction:
Huddersfield Town were totally outplayed by Manchester City in the FA Cup replay (1-5) and, to make things even worse for the fans, they suffered a 3-1 loss to Newcastle United in the Championship derby at the weekend. The Terriers desperately needed a win against Aston Villa in midweek and they managed to get one. Tom Smith helped Huddersfield pick up all three points from Tuesday’s football match and, as a result, David Wagner’s men stayed in the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League. Their next rivals Brentford did remarkably well to beat Nottingham Forest at the City Ground in midweek, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Saturday’s game against the Terriers. Huddersfield Town defeated Brentford in the reverse fixture and we predict that they will record yet another win over the Bees in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Player (Josh McEachran):
Josh McEachran is a professional football player who was born on 1 March, 1993. The English footballer plays as central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both attacking and defensive midfielder as well. McEachran is a product of Chelsea youth school, but he made no more than 11 appearances for the senior squad at Stamford Bridge. After spending several seasons on loan at Swansea City, Middlesbrough, Watford, Wigan and Vitesse, he signed a four-year deal with Brentford on 10 July 2015 for an undisclosed fee. Just 15 days later he suffered a fractured foot and, as a result, he was out of contention for three months. McEachran made his Brentford debut on 15 December in a 2-1 win over Reading and he went on to make 14 appearances for the Bees in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign. Josh was born in Kirtlington, Oxfordshire, England, but his parents are Scottish. The Brentford midfielder was in a relationship with English actress Brooke Vincent.
Highlighted Team (Huddersfield Town):
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 to win the FA Cup title in 1920 as well. 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.
