Our prediction for this Championship match:
Fulham played their last Premier League game on 11 May, 2014 against Crystal Palace and the capital club have been trying to return to the English top flight ever since. The Cottagers failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, the club owners appointed Slavisa Jokanovic as Fulham’s new manager. Fulham kicked off the new season in great manner, but they have not been as successful in the English second tier ever since. The Cottagers recorded only one win in previous nine league fixtures, meaning that they are unlikely to beat promotion-chasing Huddersfield on Matchday 15. David Wagner’s men scored a late winner in Saturday’s football match and we predict that they are going to extend their winning run in the Championship. Huddersfield Town are after their seventh home win of the season, with the team defeating the likes of Brentford, Barnsley, Wolves, QPR, Rotherham United and Derby County at the John Smith’s Stadium.

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.
