Our prediction for this Championship match:
Hull City will be aiming to make amends for a 3-1 loss to WBA when they take on Huddersfield Town on Matchday 16. The Tigers are only three points behind the playoffs berth and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Terriers. Liam Rosenior has a full squad at his disposal except for midfielder Regan Slater, who continues to miss out with a hamstring problem.
The visitors, on the other hand, are eager to escape the danger zone, but given their shaky defence, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Hull City’s party at MKM Stadium. As for the visiting team, all Patrick Jones, David Kasumu, Daniel Ward, and Oliver Turton are out of contention through injuries. Last time out, the two teams played out at MKM Stadium, but we are tempted to put our money on the home side this time out.
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.
