Our prediction for this Championship match:
John Smith’s Stadium will host Saturday’s Championship game between Huddersfield Town and Rotherham United, the two teams who sit in the danger zone. The Terriers desperately needed a win against WBA and they managed to get one, with the triumph giving them a confidence boost. Barring any fresh injury worries, Neil Warnock is unlikely to make changes to the team that won the last league match.
The Millers, on the other hand, recorded their first win of the season against Norwich City, with the team escaping the bottom three. Anyhow, home win should be considered this time out as Rotherham United struggle on the travels. As for the away side, all Georgie Kelly, Hakeem Odoffin, Grant Hall, Jamie Lindsay, Shane Ferguson, and Lee Peltier remain in the recovery room. In their last encounter at the venue Huddersfield Town recorded a routine 2-0 win over Rotherham United.
Highlighted Team (Huddersfield):
Back in 1926 Huddersfield Town became the first English club to win three straight domestic trophies. Since 1908 the Terriers were playing at Leeds Road, but in 1994 John Smith’s Stadium became home of Huddersfield Town. The club play in the English second tier (Championship) and the colour of the their home kit is blue and white (stripes).
Huddersfield Town were founded in 1910 and just three years later they entered the Football League. In 1926 the Terriers won their last domestic trophy, but they did well finishing runners up in the FA Cup 1920. The club’s biggest rivals are Leeds United and it has to be noted that Huddersfield Town have better head-to-head record of the two teams.
Bradford City are considered Huddersfield’s local rivals as well, but there are small rivalries with Barnsley, Halifax Town, Manchester City and Oldham Athletic. The club’s chairman is Dean Hoyle.
