Our prediction for this Championship match:
Huddersfield Town play host to Stoke City at their John Smith’s Stadium in what is expected to be a close Championship game. The Terriers made a slow start to the season, with the team losing to both Burnley and Birmingham, and, as a result, they are low on spirits ahead of the visit of Stoke. Since Huddersfield experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Preston, home win should not be considered. Both David Kasumu and Matty Pearson are injured for the home side.
The Potters, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Stoke City, and we predict that they will take advantage of the Terriers’ shaky defence as well. Both Nick Powell and Harry Souttar continue to miss out with injuries for the visiting team, whilst experienced attacker Jordan Rhodes is pushing for his first Championship start after finding the net in the EFL Cup defeat to Preston (1-4).
