Our prediction for this Championship match:
Saturday’s football game at Turf Moor pits together Burnley and Huddersfield, the two teams with totally different ambitions for the remainder of the season. The Clarets are leading the chase for automatic promotion, and they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the Championship. The likes of Benson, Beyer, Harwood-Bellis, and Jay Rodriguez remain in the recovery room, while important midfielder Nathan Tella returns to the starting XI after he was rested in a 1-1 draw with Millwall.
The Terriers, on the other hand, are fighting hard to secure the Championship survival, with the team picking up vital three points from the Birmingham City game. Huddersfield, though, have been struggling on the travels this season, and they are unlikely to spoil Burnley’s party at Turf Moor. The good news for the visitors is that William Boyle is back from suspension, but their injury list is pretty long.
Highlighted Player (Bailey Peacock-Farrell):
Despite being born in Darlington, England on October 29, 1996, Bailey Peacock-Farrell represents Northern Ireland at senior level. The Northern Ireland international started his youth career at Middlesbrough, but in 2013 he joined Leeds United. The talented goalkeeper continued playing for Leeds United senior team and, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of him.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell made his first-team debut for the Whites on April 5, 2016 in a home game against Queens Park Rangers. The two played out a 1-1 draw at Elland Road and it has to be noted that the goalkeeper conceded a penalty kick in the 87th minute of the match. The 192-cm tall shot-stopper has a contract with Leeds United which should expire on June, 2020.
As previously mentioned, the Leeds United goalkeeper represents Northern Ireland on the international stage, qualifying for the national team thanks to his grandfather Jim Farreell, who was born in Enniskillen.
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.
