Our prediction for this Championship match:
Saturday’s football game at Kirkless Stadium pits together Huddersfield Town and Coventry City, the two bottom-table sides. Despite sitting just above the relegation zone, both teams have already secured the Championship survival, meaning that they should be with guards down in the penultimate game of the season. The Terriers aim to bounce back from a heavy 5-2 loss to Blackburn Rovers, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in their last home match of the process.
Both Grant and Schindler are likely to miss the match with injuries, while Aarons, Edmonds-Green, High, Holmes, and Rowe are pushing for a start. The Sky Blues, on the other hand, suffered a 1-0 loss to Preston in their last league match. Coventry City have already met their goal, and given their anything but good away record, we believe that punters can find value in betting on Huddersfield Town. The likes of Jones, Kelly, Pask, Reid, and Sheaf are likely to miss the game with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Alex Pritchard):
Born on the 3rd of May, 1993, Alex Pritchard is a professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Huddersfield Town in the Championship. The English International has represented his nation at the under-20 and under-21 level, making his debut for the latter against Lithuania on the 5th of September, 2014.
The Orsett local began his club career at West ham's academy but later joined the Tottenham Hotspur academy in 2009. After establishing himself in the reserves, Pritchard signed his first professional contract with the club in 2011. However, he only ever made two appearances for the club, spending most of his time out on loan. Pritchard's first professional appearance came on the 2nd of February, 2013, in a 2-2 draw, playing in a Championship game for Peterborough United.
His primary professional goal meanwhile came playing for Swindon Town in August 2013, in a 2-0 league cup win over QPR. Further Loan stints at Brentford and West Brom succeeded his time at Swindon before he finally left spurs permanently to sign for Norwich City in 2016 on a four-year deal. A couple of seasons later, in 2018, Norwich sold the 26-year-old to Huddersfield, where he is currently on a three-and-a-half-year contract.
