Our prediction for this Championship match:
Huddersfield Town play host to Birmingham City at their John Smith’s Stadium on day 33 of the 2022/2023 Championship campaign. The Terriers sit in the relegation zone, with the team producing a poor display in a 3-0 loss to Stoke City. Since Huddersfield have been struggling in front of goal of late, home win should not be considered. The home team’s recovery room is almost full, with all Phillips, Holmes, Nicholls, Nakayama, Anjorin, Jackson, Turton, and Helik missing out with injuries.
The Blues, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Cardiff City. Since both sides are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s encounter, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. The likes of Bellingham, Williams, Khadra, Campbell, Roberts, and Placheta are out of contention with injuries, speaking of the away team.
