Our prediction for this Championship match:
Huddersfield Town and Swansea City square off against each other at John Smith’s Stadium on day 21 of the new Championship campaign. The Terriers desperately needed a win against Queens Park Rangers, and they managed to get one, but despite the triumph, they are still sitting in the danger zone. Huddersfield’s injury list is pretty long, including the likes of Turton, Nakayama, Hogg, Jones, Simpson, and Pearson, while Tom Lees is a major doubt following his recent positive test for COVID-19.
The Swans, on the other hand, aim to climb to the playoffs berth, but given their four-game winless run in the English second tier, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the relegation-threatened hosts. Both Joe Allen and Liam Walsh should miss out with injuries for the South Wales outfit, while experienced forward Lukas Jutkiewicz could sneak into the starting XI.
