Our prediction for this Championship match:
Huddersfield Town have been producing outstanding displays at the start of the new Championship campaign, but they do not want to stop now. The Terriers did well to beat Queens Park Rangers at the weekend and the league leaders aim to build on the triumph. Huddersfield have been impressive at home this season, but they were beaten by Brighton in their last away game and, no doubt, the visitors will be happy with one point from Saturday’s football match against Reading. The Royals proved their worth in a 2-1 win over in-form Barnsley at the weekend and, as a result, they are level on points with teams who are sitting in the play-offs berth. Seeing that both Reading and Huddersfield Town will go for a win in Saturday’s showdown at Madejski Stadium we predict that both teams will find the net on day 9 of the 2016/2017 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Player (Chris Gunter):
After spending one and a half season at Cardiff City, Chris Gunter signed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur on 1 January, 2008. However, he did not play an important role in the team during the second half of the 2007/2008 Premier League campaign, making just two league appearances for the White Hart Lane outfit. Seeing that he was not considered first-team regular in the 2008/2009 season as well, Gunter decided to join Nottingham Forest on Loan in March, 2009. Four months later he signed a permanent deal with the Reds and he stayed at the club until July 2012, when he completed a move to Reading. The Wales international signed a three-year deal with the Royals and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular. It has to be noted that he made 44 league appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign. Chris Gunter was born in Newport, Wales on 21 July, 1989 and he made his debut for the Welsh national team in a friendly match against New Zealand on 26 May, 2007, while helping the Dragons reach the Euro 2016 semis in France.
Highlighted Team (Huddersfield Town):
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.
