Our prediction for this Championship match:
After suffering a 2-1 loss to Hull City at the weekend, Norwich City will look to record their first win of the season when they host Huddersfield Town to their Carrow Road. The Canaries are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. All Dimitris Giannoulis, Tony Springett, Isaac Hayden, and Sam Byram are out of contention with injuries, while both Gabriel Sara and Sam McCallum are major doubts.
The Terriers, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over Stoke City. Huddersfield, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Norwich City’s party at Carrow Road. All David Kasumu, Matthew Pearson, and Rarmani Edmonds-Green should miss out with injuries for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Grant Hanley):
Grant Hanley is Scottish footballer who plays for Norwich City as defender. Hanley was born in Dumfries, Scotland, on November 20, 1991 and he started his youth career at Queen of the South. After ending his spells with Crewe Alexandra and Rangers, the Scottish player joined English club Blackburn Rovers, where he started his senior career.
After scoring eight goals in 183 appearances for the Riversiders in league matches, he moved to fellow English club Newcastle United in July, 2016 for an undisclosed fee. Grant Hanley, though, made no more than 10 appearances for Newcastle United in the Championship before joining Norwich City. The 191-cm-tall defender made his full international debut for Scotland against Wales on in May, 2011.
He scored his first goal for the Scotland national football team in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Wales. His contract with Norwich City should expire on June 30, 2021.
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.
