Our football match prediction:
Burton Albion have been having their ups and downs in the Championship this season. Following a 2-1 win over rock-bottom Rotherham United, the Brewers suffered a 2-1 loss to Brentford at the weekend. The newcomers are desperate to avoid relegation to the League One, but they are just two points clear of bottom three ahead of the visit of Huddersfield Town. The hosts should be happy with one point from Tuesday’s football match and we predict that they will adopt a cautious approach against the Terriers. Huddersfield returned to winning ways on Saturday, with the team beating Bristol City (2-1) in front of home fans, but they do not want to stop now. The Terriers aim to retain their spot in top six and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Burton Albion in Tuesday’s game. Nahki Wells scored the winner against Bristol City, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Highligted Player (Lucas Akins):
After making his first football steps in Huddersfield Town youth academy, Lucas Akins made his first-team debut against Northampton Town as he came as a substitute to replace Luke Beckett. However, he made no more than five appearances for Huddersfield Town as he was sent on loan to Nortwich Victoria. After spending two seasons at Hamilton Academical, the winger, who was born on 25 February 1989, joined Tranmere Rovers in July, 2010. Lucas Atkins scored 7 goals in 77 appearances for the club and in 2012 he signed a contract with Stevenage. The English footballer played 77 league games for the Boro and he scored 13 goals for the club. During the 2013/2014 campaign he was on Burton Albion’s radar and at the end of the season he joined the Pirelli Stadium outfit. Lucas Atkins enjoys playing football, but dancing is considered his passion as well. His main position is right wing, but he plays as both centre forward and left winger as well.
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.
