Our football match prediction:
Huddersfield Town will be looking to make amends for a heavy 4-0 defeat to Bristol City when they square off against Burton Albion at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday. The Terriers are on the right track to book their place in the Championship play-offs, but they are still in a position to secure automatic promotion to the English top flight. Huddersfield Town are six points behind second-placed Brighton, but it has to be noted that David Wagner’s men have one game in hand. Burton Albion experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-3 loss to Brentford and considering that they recorded only one win in last six away games, we predict that the newcomers will return home empty-handed from Saturday's football game. Huddersfield Town are a real force to be reckoned with at home and it has to be noted that they are after their 14th home win of the season.
