Our prediction for this Championship match:
Huddersfield Town will look to put an end to their four-game winless run when they take on Southampton in the Championship round 17. The Terriers have been struggling in front of goal of late and it is no wonder the bookies see them as underdogs in Saturday’s encounter. The likes of Jack Rudoni, Delano Burgzorg, Patrick Jones, Daniel Ward, Loick Ayina, and Oliver Turton remain in the recovery room, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Saints, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in the English second tier and we predict that they will take advantage of Huddersfield’s poor form as well. As for the away team, all Che Adams, Will Smallbone, Jack Stephens, Juan Larios are out of contention with injuries, while Poland defender Jan Bednarek returns to the starting XI after serving his one-game ban in a 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion.
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.
