Our football match prediction:
The John Smith’s Stadium will host Saturday’s football match between Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United. Automatic promotion to the Premier League will be at stake when the two teams face each other on Matchday 35 and it remains to be seen who will have a reason for celebration this time out. The Terriers suffered only one loss in last 15 league fixtures and they are definitely capable of making life difficult for the Magpies in front of home fans. Rafa Benitez mixed the squad against Bristol City at the weekend and, as a result, they played out a 2-2 draw with the Robins at their St. James’ Park. Anyhow, given Newcastle’s attacking potential we predict that the visitors will find the net in the Championship derby. No less than ten goals were scored in last two meetings between the two teams in all competitions and, taking everything into account, they are likely to play out a high-scoring draw at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Jason Davidson):
Jason Davidson is an Australian international who plays for Huddersfield Town. The pacey left back started his youth career at Seiritsu Gakuen and in 2009 he joined Pacos de Ferreira. Davidson made his senior debut at Hume City in 2009, but he left the club later that year. He returned to Pacos de Ferreira in September, 2009, but he made no more than 5 appearances for the club in the 2009/2010 Primeira Liga campaign. Jason Davidson was voted 2009 Victorian Premier League – U 21 player of the Year and during that period Stuttgart, Sporting CP and Ankaragucu scouts spotted him. However, after ending his loan spell with Sporting Covilha, he joined Heracles Amelo in January, 2012. The Australian player, who was born on 29 June 1991, scored 2 goals in 51 league appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit and in August 2014 he signed a contract with Premier League side West Bromwich Albion. Nonetheless, he played no more than two league games for the Baggies as the club announced his release in May 2015. Huddersfield Town chiefs decided to sign a three-year deal with Donaldson on 26 June 2015 and it has to be noted that he scored one goal in 27 appearences for the club in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Newcastle United):
Newcastle United failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign and, as a result, they dropped to the English second tier. The Magpies will host their rivals at their St. James’ Park in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign and it has to be noted that the capacity of the stadium is 52,354. Newcastle United have won four domestic trophies (1904/1905, 1906/1907, 1908/1909, 1926/1927), while lifting six FA Cup titles (1910, 1924, 1932, 1951, 1952, 1955) and a number of star players were part of the St. James’ Park outfit in the past. David Ginola, Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Nolberto Solano, Gary Speed, Obafemi Martins and Kevin Nolan are notable footballers who are still remembered at the club. Newcastle’s fiercest rivals are Sunderland and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Tyne-Wear derby. The colour of Newcastle’s home kit is black and white.
