Our prediction for this Championship match:
John Smith’s Stadium will host Saturday’s Championship game between Huddersfield Town and Millwall, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Terriers are stuck at the bottom of the table with only 12 points on their account, and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to secure yet another Championship survival. All William Boyle, Patrick Jones, Jonathan Hogg, Tyreece Simpson, and Matty Pearson should miss out with injuries, while Faustino Anjorin is a major doubt.
The Lions, on the other hand, look unstoppable at the moment, with the team extending their winning run to four games with a 2-1 victory over WBA. The visitors are eager to stay in the playoffs berth, and seeing that Huddersfield have already suffered four defeats on home soil this term, away win should be considered. Midfielder Ryan Leonard should be the only absentee in the away team.
