Our football match prediction:
Huddersfield Town did remarkably well to crush Port Vale in the FA Cup, but the team failed to impress in Saturday’s Championship derby against Sheffield Wednesday. The Terriers suffered a 2-0 loss to the Owls at Hillsborough Stadium, but they are still sitting in the play-offs berth in the standings. The team’s main goal is to finish the season in top six, but they need to keep on raising their form if they are to turn the dream into reality. Huddersfield Town recorded two wins in previous three home games in the league and that is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Ipswich Town. The Tractor Boys outplayed Blackburn Rovers at the weekend, but the Terriers are likely to pose a much bigger threat for Mick McCarthy’s men than their previous rivals. Huddersfield are more of a team than Ipswich and we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football match.

Ipswich won the FA Cup in 1978, with the team beating Arsenal (1-0) in the title game. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1981 when they outplayed AZ Alkmaar in the UEFA Cup final.
